In contrast to traditional Unix-based editors like Emacs or Vim, Geany more closely resembles programming editors available for Microsoft Windows such as Programmer's Notepad or Notepad++, both of which also use Scintilla.
It is free software licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL version 2 or later. After version 0.21 the next version was numbered 1.22 as requested by many users to reflect the maturity of the product.

Many users told us our version numbers didn't reflect the maturity of Geany to their eyes, and wished it to be changed to reflect that. So after some discussion we decided to rename this version 1.22 instead of 0.22.
