Mellel 3.4.2

RedleX issued Mellel 3.4.1 with a number of fixes for the word processing app, including a bug that caused the app to fail to launch in 64-bit mode on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, an issue that prevented certain older .mell files from being opened, a problem that caused arrow keys to move incorrectly when editing annotations, and a crash caused by some font configurations. Shortly afterwards, RedleX released version 3.4.2 to fix a bug that caused Mellel to save files without their Style set. It also further addressed the problem with failure to open older .mell files (which were also being converted into un-openable .mellel files). Note that as of this writing, the Mac App Store edition of Mellel remains stalled at version 3.4.0. ($39 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, free update, 93.4 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
