Notational Velocity forks are popping out everywhere: this one is especially interesting since it adds options to switch to fullscreen editing mode, or quickly hide the notes list to enlarge the text editor. A menu bar icon is included as well, so Notational Velocity can be omnipresent without staying in the Dock, which is quite nice if you rely on invoking "NV" with a keyboard shortcut.

I'd love to merge the new implementation code with my underwhelming preview-enabling version of Notational Velocity, but sadly there's no code repository set up, yet.
