FROM: Jonathan Deutsch, CEO of Tumult Co.



Tumult Co. today announced the release of version 1.5 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 1.5 improves HyperEdit by adding key features such as a color swatches palette, the ability to tear off the web preview into a separate window, multiple browser previews, and better support for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.

"HyperEdit 1.5 delivers features that make it more usable and useful," said Jonathan Deutsch, CEO of Tumult Co. "Users of HyperEdit can harness the power of live editing by making small and incremental changes which quickly refine the page into their vision. The new version's detachable preview window and multi-browser support gives them even more control to do so." 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.

HyperEdit is shareware and costs $19.95 USD. Customers who purchased HyperEdit 1.0 can upgrade for free. Further product information and a link to download can be found at:
