FROM: Jonathan Deutsch, CEO of Tumult Co.



Tumult Co. today announced the release of version 1.6 of its lightweight HTML and PHP editor for Mac OS X, HyperEdit. Tumult HyperEdit uses a split view with text editor and a preview pane to display the web page live as a user types.

HyperEdit breaks the tedious cycle of writing HTML/PHP, saving the file, then reloading and viewing the page in the browser by combining the writing phase with the viewing phase. This clarifies the effects of changes and speeds up the overall process of making a web page. W3C-based validation will red-underline any mistakes. It uses the same rendering engine found in Safari, so it is not only standards compliant, but also very fast.

Version 1.6 improves HyperEdit with several stability fixes, support for Safari 3.1's Web Inspector, the ability to display invisible characters, auto-updates, and better support for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Registration and product activation issues that occured with the Leopard upgrade have now been resolved.

"HyperEdit 1.6 is the most polished and feature-rich release yet," said Jonathan Deutsch, CEO of Tumult Co. "The power of live editing is best shown when trying to make small changes. Users can play with their pages in HyperEdit, and tweak it to look exactly how they desire without wasting time. It is a big win in productivity." Beyond tweaking pages, HyperEdit is also useful for writing forum and blog entries, as well as producing larger sites. Additionally, HyperEdit is a great tool for learning HTML, CSS, Javascript, and PHP.
