Well, iirc, this (below) is what I saw, but maybe I read too much into it.

The reason I thought it might be out-of-date was that I read the following to
say that it could only be keyboard driven yet this thread seemed to indicate
it was also a GUI that could be mouse driven. Maybe I read too much into it
(and maybe I didn't thoroughly read or understand the entire page) -- I guess
I should have inferred that it could be mouse driven by seeing that it is a
GTK application.

Keyboard Driven
Textadept is entirely keyboard driven. The editor defines key bindings for
nearly every action. You can easily reassign existing bindings or create new
ones. Keys may be chained together or grouped into language-specific keys or
key modes.

Ok, thanks!
