It's too bad, but I gather that this app has been abandoned. I bought a license, tried to activate it, and got an "unknown error". Tried to use the contact form on the site to get help, and that didn't work either. As far as I can tell, the only things that do work are the payment system and retrieve license key by email (which doesn't help, since you still can't activate the product).
It's a pity, as based on the last release, I'd say this was a very promising lightweight text/code editor.

This is a promising new editor with a built-in terminal. Click on compile errors in the terminal and it takes you to the offending line in your code, for example. This is the most Mac-native look I've seen for a Qt application--very impressive. But two-finger scrolling in the file browser scrolls too slowly, and two-finger scrolling in code is (I think) too fast. And why can't Qt apps ever see Command-W? But these are nitpicking. If Pacu gets Ada and Pascal and Matlab/Octave syntax coloring I'll be even happier with it.

I just release Pacu 1.2.3 and it now supports Octave syntax highlighting.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work; there's an error in how it's linked. The following command fixes it:

install_name_tool -change /Users/frank/Work/libPONA_release64_leopard/build/libpona.0.dylib @executable_path/../Frameworks/libpona.0.dylib /Pacu.app/Contents/Frameworks/libvide.0.dylib

Once that's done, the application loads just fine, but unfortunately, there isn't much too see. For instance, you can't customise the colourisation.

Thank you very much for pointing out this issue.
I fixed my build scripts accordingly.
My sincere apologies for pushing upstream a broken bundle.
Regarding improved syntax highlighting: I'm working on it!
If you feel there is something else missing, please let me know.
