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
