SubEthaEdit 3.1 update
TheCodingMonkeys today announced the release of SubEthaEdit 3.1, an update to its collaborative text editing software, adding a number of different features to make internet collaboration easier. The new version adds automatic port forwarding, allowing users to connect easily without manual setup. iChat invites allow users to drag and drop iChat contacts onto the software to invite users to a session. SubEthaEdit 3.1 is available for €29 (~$45).
Another major new feature is Friendcasting, which allows users to engage users on a buddy's friend list directly from within SubEthaEdit. Clicking the Friendcast button shows which projects a user is currently engaged in so that they can join in, even if the person in charge isn't on the user's standard buddy list. This option can be disabled for user privacy.
