Yzis is a brand new editor inspired by vim. Yzis aims to be a powerful, fast editor with all of Vim's features and hopefully, at some point, more.

Especially the KDE-interface provides an easy-to-use interface for users and allows you to have tabs for different buffers and a GUI that allows you to change things like colour schemes and syntax highlighting easily, while still letting (g)vim users feel at home.
