LightWayText, iText fixes

The four text-editing applications within the LightWayText and iText lines have all been upgraded by their developer. LightWayText is now at v4.5, while iText is at v3.5, iText Express is at v3.2.1 and iText Pro '09 is also at v3.2.1. LightWayText and iText have been given Universal Binary support, as well as bugfixes and enhancements to text import. LightWayText in particular has received a German localization.

iText Express and Pro '09 have been given improved localizations for English, Danish and Japanese, as well as Korean improvements in the case of the former. Both apps feature bugfixes and better stability.

Both iText and iText Express are freeware, while iText Pro '09 costs $15 and adds customization of templates, toolbars and keyboard shortcuts. It also adds support for styled text, hierarchical bookmarks and multiple clipboards. LightWayText is priced at $25 and has cross-platform functionality, with one license allowing for both Mac and PC installations. It supports numerous languages, including English, Japanese, Greek, Hebrew, Turkish and Arabic.

The updated text editors work with Mac OS X 10.3 and higher, while classic versions are available for operating systems as old as Mac OS 7.1.
