Announcement: LiteDevelop, a Visual Studio alternative

Today I would like to announce there is a new Integrated Development Environment (IDE) called LiteDevelop upcoming! This application serves as a free, light-weight and open-source alternative to Visual Studio and is able to be launched from a removable drive such as USB sticks or SD-cards.

LiteDevelop will support languages such as C# and VB.Net, but it won't focus on these only. Soon there will be support for creating complex websites in Html, Php, Javascript and Css, and maybe other programming and/or scripting languages.

Here are some screenshots of the first versions. Please note this is far from a release version and the interface will be improved a lot (e.g. including icons in the forms designer).
