it has a minimal C core of 2000 lines, the rest is Lua. It uses
Scintilla and comes from the same guy that brought LPeg lexers to
Scintilla (now supported in mainline SciTE). �However, there is a
learning curve which does not make it a friendly first code editor.
(Translation: I was confused.)
Yes, it is different. That is why I think it isn't for everyone. I totally agree about the menu not having the keyboard shortcuts. I think I will add a feature request for this. But until then there is a new wiki article  with them all listed.
And it does require the GTK runtime on Windows, which makes it an
awkward replacement for SciTE on that platform.
I believe GTK is part of the download. No need for anything else, but the .zip download.
