Ulysses 2 update
The Soulmen has released Ulysses 2.0, an update to the text editor for Macs, previously owned by the Blue Technologies Group. The software provides an interface with integrated notepads and a document browser as well as includes project management tools with filtering features. The latest update delivers a revamped interface with new project templates, an unfilled filter for displaying documents which are not located within a collection, and a document trash that holds all deleted files for viewing, while enabling them to be restored if necessary.
In addition to the changes, several improvements have been made to the software's editor which add both bookmarks and style-jumpers for simpler navigation in documents, and include a new "selection highlight" function. Search and save options have been added, along with preference alterations for simpler adjusting and customization of projects. Also, changes were made to the console mode that provide a new panel for viewing and editing notes, and offer new short cut functions and the ability to turn off the anti-aliasing. Amongst the major modifications other miner features have also been made, including support for search phrases, and a new preference panel and fonts and colors panel.
The Blue Technologies Group, which was originally founded in 2003, has announced that it has officially disbanded, and its company's operations will now be handled by The Soulmen. The new company consists of key members from the former Blue Technologies Group and will be re-branding and launching all their software products, beginning with the latest Ulysses 2.0 and Ulysses core.
Ulysses 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and is priced at $65 for the Standard version, $50 for Educational, and $35 for users who are upgrading. People who have purchased the software on or after January 1st 2009 can receive an update to the newest version for free.
