    A small note, version 2.2.7 was released in February of last year. There has been no news since then.

    The problem with this program is not being able to visualize anything while you pick code. For those used to Dreamweaver, today the best thing in GNU / Linux is Kompozer (although it is abandoned).

      Brackets is also a good alternative, you can view the web in real time while changing the code in the program. Greetings!
