Text editor: CygnusEd 5 released
Press release  Since today CygnusEd 5 is available at APC&TCP. An update for older versions is available at a reduced price when sending the original disc/CD to APC&TCP directly.

The support homepage of CygnusEd 5 is online since today as well; the support forum was already opened quite a while ago.

Salesmen who want to offer the programme to their customers should contact APC&TCP directly via email.

About CygnusEd Professional Release 5

The probably best known Amiga text editor for programmers was developed by Bruce Dawson, Colin Fox & Steve LaRocque (CygnusSoft Software) 20 years ago (1986/1987). Originally they released it on their own cost. Already back then CygnusEd was characterised by its high working speed and robustness. CygnusEd advanced constantly in the following years and was one of the first programmes with an ARexx interface and the first Amiga text editor with Undo/Redo functions. Many Amiga programmers "grew up" with CygnusEd and a considerable part of the software developed for Amiga was written with CygnusEd.

CygnusEd version 4, which was the last released version, was published in 1997 and was a completetly revised version of the texteditor and its tools, adapted to AmigaOS 3.1.

The latest CygnusEd version 5 has some new functions and robustness and working speed were once again improved. The tool "Ed" was rewritten completely and the complete source code is enclosed to CygnusEd. Many old restrictions and weaknesses of CygnusEd have been removed. The version 5 is the first version of CygnusEd which has been completetly ported to the PowerPC processor with all tools and one of the first commercial software packages especially adapted for AmigaOS 4.
