September's UltraEdit for Mac development update
Update (2010-09-22): Please see our latest update on UE for Mac beta testing.
For those waiting patiently for UltraEdit for Mac we have some great news...
•On schedule, in Alpha testing now!
•Beta I scheduled 15 September 2010 (yes, just a week or so away).
•Commercial release this fall...
We have refined details in the following areas since our last status update: dockable windows, resizing, function list, scrolling, painting, and caret positioning, and of course - we continue to optimize for maximum performance along the way...
A comprehensive list of features included in Beta I can be found at:
The native FTP client will be wrapped up by release but is not planned for Beta I. Spell checker will be in Beta I. During Beta I we will call upon our testers for input regarding the default toolbar configuration and should have all custom toolbars in by Beta II.
At IDM, we believe in test-driven development, therefore we greatly appreciate all those who have signed up for Beta testing. If you would like to participate in the UE for Mac Beta, please sign up now. Beta I will include around 200 participants. As we move forward, we will expand the beta group each week or so reaching over 1000 participants by release. We are confident that the initial release will please all!
It was suggested that I say:
Goodbye XP and hello Snow Leopard! (Quote me all you want, the Mac version is killer!)
Tough however for me as a die-hard Windows guy, but you get the idea of how we all feel!
Thanks as always,
- Ian and team
