Welcome on the neXtgen Povray Editor website.

"neXtgen Povray Editor" (XPE) is a graphical editor for Povray based on wxWidgets library. It looks like a modern code editor (Kdevelop, Netbeans, Eclipse ...) but focused on Povray. It is organized to optimise work-space and includes numerous features (nearly all those from povray's Windows version and many other extra-features).
