I'm following the development of this very closely and I'm very very excited. Also, thanks for adding in the LOC suggestion I submitted. It's nice to see the scale of a project like that, especially if you've been working on it for a long time.
I really, REALLY want to use Parakeet as my main editor for GM, but saving seems to be bugged up for me. Running Windows 7 Home Premium in Parallels Desktop virtual machine. I installed .NET 4.5 (running Parakeet 0.2.2.) I submitted a bug report, copied the error and took a screen shot. Some sort of NullReferenceError. I love the features you're putting into it, but it's important to make sure that something like that doesn't get goofed up; otherwise it's of no use to anybody.
Not trying to be a downer. Somebody's gotta report bugs. I can't help with development at this time, so this is my way of making Parakeet better.
