Ulysses and Ulysses Core
Coinciding with its five-year anniversary, Blue-tec this week announced a new version Ulysses 1.6, its Mac OS X-based text editor. Aimed at the creative writing market, version 1.6 includes an innovative 'tabbed' single-window user interface, comprehensive filtering and search system, semantic text editing, and a 'preview as you type' window. The update also offers bug fixes, further improved UI, extended printing capabilities, enhanced search/replace features, and new Hungarian and Portuguese localizations. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and is priced at €80 for a single-user license. A 30-day free trial is available from blue-tec.com.
In addition, the company has updated Ulysses Core, a lighter version of text editor. Aimed at 'the creative writer who doesn't need the full feature set of its more expensive sibling, it offers a similar UI and many of the advanced features such as 'semantic text editing." Ulysses Core is priced at €40; it also requires OS X 10.4.
