Builder is an in-development IDE that we reported on a few months ago as part of our GUADEC coverage. Builder aims to be an IDE that will focus purely on GNOME applications, with a goal of making it “Dead Simple”. The lead Builder developer Christian Hergert recently reported on his blog that there are now Fedora 21 COPR builds of the Builder master available for use and testing.


In the months since GUADEC, there has been a flurry of development on builder, with Christian issuing weekly reports on his progress. Some of the features that have recently been added include: auto indentation for C, change tracking, editor movements, a Markdown preview, global navigation, and the ability to trim trailing space. Check out the video by Christian below that shows builder in action.
