LaTeXila is a LaTeX editor for the GNOME Desktop. It is a free software (GPL 3+ license). It runs on GNU/Linux, OpenBSD and maybe other UNIX systems.
Here are the main features of LaTeXila 2.8, the current stable version, released in March 2013.
Build Tools: customizable buttons to compile, convert and view a document in one click.
Latexmk is used by default, but the "low-level" commands such as pdflatex, dvipdf and bibtex can also be used.

|Screenshot 7||Templates: there are a few default templates, but you can create personal templates.|

The version numbering is the same as GNOME:
A version number has the form X.Y.Z. "Y" is even for stable versions, and is odd for unstable versions. For example, the 2.2.0 version is stable, but 2.3.0 is unstable. An unstable version can potentially have more bugs, and there are generally new features between two minor unstable versions (e.g. 2.3.0 -> 2.3.1). A new minor stable version (e.g. 2.2.0 -> 2.2.1) doesn't add new features, only new or updated translations and bug fixes.
New versions are released "when it's done".
The NEWS file describes the changes for each version.
