NicoEdit 2.0beta6

align is designed for space or tab delimited text. Here is the author's site:

"I'm on a different computer right now. 415+ just means a later build than 415, getting ready for 416. Just going from memory, there was a problem at the second step in bk_compile, running gcc, a table was not defined that was needed by gtksourceview ...that's not much help I know, I'll get back to you. Yes, I do have vala 0.7.4.
