Mined is a powerful text editor with a comprehensive yet concise and 
easy-to-use user interface supporting modern interaction paradigms, 
and fast, small-footprint behaviour.

Mined provides both extensive Unicode and CJK support offering many 
specific features and covering special cases that other editors 
are not aware of (like auto-detection features and automatic handling 
of terminal variations, or Han character information).
It was the first editor that supported Unicode in a plain-text terminal 
(like xterm or rxvt).

Basically, mined is an editor tailored to reliable and efficient 
editing of plain text documents and programs, with features and 
interactive behaviour designed for this purpose.

Mined is co-hosted at sourceforge and has a mailing list
