Kobby 1.0 beta 5 is now available in Kubuntu Lucid. Some of you may be more familiar with a gtk alternative, Gobby.

Kobby is editor for collaboratively editing text documents and source files over a network. All users can work on a file simultaneously without the need to lock it. Kobby supports syntax highlighting for various programming and markup languages.

I hope that the UDS organizers will use the new protocol for collaborative editing so that we can participate remotely using Kobby this time around.

If you want to try it out, and don’t have an infinote server to connect to, istall the infinoted package and start a server with the command infinoted --security-policy=no-tls.
