Software News   Software News : Announcing availability of CygnusEd 5
   posted by AndreasM on 6-Jun-2006 14:04:21 (5149 reads)
Starting today, CygnusEd can be ordered from APC&TCP.

Upgrades from older versions are available at a reduced price. In order to obtain an upgrade you will need to mail your old CygnusEd floppy disk or CD-ROM to APC&TCP. http://www.apc-tcp.de



The support home page for CygnusEd 5 also went online today: http://www.apc-tcp.de/support/0030e.html]

The associated support form for CygnusEd can be reached under http://www.amigafuture.de/forum/viewforum.php?f=25.

Dealers who want to sell CygnusEd should contact APC&TCP directly by e-mail.

About CygnusEd Professional Release 5

The perhaps most famous Amiga text editor for programmers was developed 20 years ago (1986/1987) Bruce Dawson, Colin Fox & Steve LaRocque (CygnusSoft Software) and was originally self-published. Even back then CygnusEd distinguished itself through its high performance and robustness. Development on CygnusEd would proceed at a steady pace in the years to follow. CygnusEd was one of the first programs to feature an ARexx interface and the first Amiga text editor with an Undo/Redo feature. Many Amiga programmers "grew up" with CygnusEd and a considerable part of the Amiga software library was created with CygnusEd.

The last version published was CygnusEd Professional 4. It became available in 1997 and was a completely revised version of the editor and its auxiliary tools, adapted for AmigaOS 3.1.

The current CygnusEd version 5 was enhanced with new features, and robustness and performance were improved again. The "Ed" auxiliary tool was rewritten from scratch and its complete source code is included with the editor. Many limitations and deficiencies of CygnusEd were removed. Version 5 is also the first CygnusEd release ported entirely, including all auxiliary tools, to the PowerPC and one of the first commercial software packages specially adapted for AmigaOS 4.

Ordered...

Didn't bother with the upgrade. Too much hassle to return the CD, and it doesn't actually say what the upgrade fee is anywhere in the english pages

Does it support syntax highlighting at least for C/C++? I've gotten a bit spoilt over the past few years, and have come to rely on this feature to find simple mistakes in my code before I try to compile programs.

Sorry, I was too lazy to create screenshots for all operating system variants. I don't know if you noticed, but there are different sets of screenshots for the german and the english language versions. Multiply that by two for the 68k and OS4 versions...

Anyway, I rather spent the time building the ISO image for the CD

The features in the OS4 and 68k versions are the same. The GUI does look nicer on OS4 though

No, sorry. This is possibly the most frequently requested feature, but it's really tough to implement. Not because of the parser (plenty of existing designs one could borrow ideas from), but because of how CygnusEd translates what's in the document buffer into what goes onto the screen. I've got two ideas how to make syntax colouring happen, but none of them really satisfies me. Both would double the memory requirements for documents, and that's not good.

how about making it switchable?
we have more than 2mb's of ram these days, most people have 256mb, some have 512mb and it's not like you work with 256mb documents every day.
yes, syntax hi-lightning would be very nice.

... or, how about rewriting that part of the code? how much work would it require? it's a commercial app afterall, and this feature will boost sales.

@olsen

I hope you find a solution.

It must be difficult as my favourite Mac text editor (skedit) does most things brilliantly, but the syntax colouring is often dodgy.

Anyway, I used CygnusED years ago, so if I ever get the new hardware, I'll be buying a copy...

Yes. In fact, I just finished working on the demo version. All that's left to do is check if it works well on OS4.

Superb! CygnusEd comes back! If I ever get some OS4 HW I'll definitely buy CEd.

Me too. It's great to see new versions of key software but not so great when those that want to support it cannot do through lack of hardware.

A great pity as I am sure sales will be much improved once OS4 and the hardware to run it on are finished.

@Olsen

Can you share what 2 ideas do you have ? It would be a cool interesting thread.
Maybe some of us will come up with a brilliant solution if we dedicate some though to it. From what I remember CEd deals with a whole buffer of text as ASCII values and that's why attaching attributes to the data would be difficult right ?
Is one of the ideas using a LONG instead of a BYTE for characters ?
