UltraEdit for Mac/Linux v4.1
For users who crave performance, UltraEdit for Mac/Linux v4.1 delivers in a dramatic way: large file loading, editing, and navigation has been vastly improved! For example, loading and jumping to the end of a 500 MB file in v4.0 took over a minute; in v4.1 this now takes only 11 seconds, which represents a nearly 90% improvement in processing time!

UE Mac v4.1: Turbocharged large file handling and greatly improved performance!
Above are the testing results from our QA department for large file performance in UE Mac v4.1 compared to the last release build. (Please keep in mind that results will vary from system to system due to hardware, resources, and many other variables.) The data speaks for itself: large file performance in UE Mac/Linux has taken a quantum leap forward! Even better...these changes also greatly improve performance with much smaller files as well!
What's new in v4.1?
- Greatly improved file handling performance
- Instantaneous and smooth scrolling and navigation in larger files
- Greatly improved speeds with general editing of large files
- Greatly improved hex mode scrolling and performance
- Auto-complete improvements for case sensitivity
- Sort matches by case
- List exact case matches first
- File size threshold for temporary files*
- View entire FTP server tree in remote explorer rather instead of the active directory only
- Several improvements and fixes for Reindent Selection
- Addressed flickering issues when scrolling in syntax highlighted files
- Many other minor tweaks and improvements
* For optimal performance with large files, you may wish to set a threshold of 50,000KB (Preferences » File Handling » Temp Files) and select the "Disable" option. If this is selected, a temporary file will be created for files smaller than the specified threshold and will not be created for files larger than the threshold.
UltraEdit for Mac/Linux v4.0
UltraEdit for Mac/Linux v4.0 is now available! The goal of this release - and the sum of the v4 series - is to supply depth and polish to existing functionality while providing the new features you want to see. Version 4.0 exemplifies by rounding out print functionality including advanced page setup options, custom headers and footers, printing of word wrap, and more importantly, printing of syntax highlighting colors! Other additions include the quick open dialog, project wordfiles, reindent selection for source reformatting, and conversion for single-line XML feeds to a properly formatted document.
New: Rounded out print functionality
Printing support in v4.0 has been expanded tremendously! You can now tweak your page layout and setup to your liking with settings for header and footer, page margins, print fonts, and more. Also, our updates to printing include full support for printing syntax highlighting, word wrap, line numbers, and more.
The full list of changes to printing in this release are as follows:
- Full page setup options
- Customizable header/footer
- Fully adjustable margins
- Print word wrap
- Print line numbers
- Print syntax highlighting
- Improved printer selection and configuration
- Set printer font
- Mirror display font (will print with same font settings for editor)
New: Reindent selection
If you've ever collaborated with others on a project or worked on someone else's code, you know how frustrating it can be dealing with others' tab/indent styles and quirky code formatting. The reindent selection feature alleviates the headache of manually reformatting code by automatically reindenting the selected data based on your tab and indent settings.
New: XML convert to line terminators
Ever opened an XML-based file only to find that all the data runs together on one line, making it impossible to read or navigate? The new XML convert to line terminators feature will automatically add hard returns to the XML data and reindent/reformat the XML using your tab and indent settings.
New: Quick open dialog
Open your files faster! The quick open dialog allows you to quickly specify a file open relative to the active file's path, or open all files within a specified directory based upon a partial file name match.
New: Project-specific wordfiles
Set a path to a specific wordfile or wordfiles directory in your project settings to provide special syntax highlighting for different projects. You can supply a path to a single wordfile or to a directory of wordfiles. The project wordfiles are then loaded and used, along with your project, replacing the default wordfiles.
