# Qt widget QMarkdownTextEdit now a separate project for developer's pleasure

Date: 2016-01-13

For the pleasure of you developers I extracted the markdown widget functionality out of QOwnNotes and made it a separate Qt widget.

It's name is QMarkdownTextEdit and you'll find it on QMarkdownTextEdit on GitHub (opens new window).
