It is still a long way to go before Okteta will be even in Beta status. Always just 10 % missing 😉
But things are really progressing. Recently I have focussed on tools, reimplementing some of those in KHexEdit in first rough versions, to have something to play with. Yet I did not find a satisfying pattern to copy over to the Kakao framework. Will see. Thus also no infrastructure for tool plugins yet.
Okteta should be ready for KDE 4.1 in a first usable state equally to good old KHexEdit. It will, once I did the Undo-Redo-Framework. Just need the time to do a working approach with a piecetable system.
