SubEthaEdit 2.0 Refines Collaboration -- The Coding Monkeys have released version 2.0 of SubEthaEdit, their unique real-time collaborative text editor. This release adds several editing features such as regular expression-based search and replace, text auto-completion, a split-window view, conversion of line endings, and read-only access. It also enables you to invite other people on your local network to your shared document using Rendezvous. Developer-friendly features include AppleScript and ActionScript syntax highlighting, and per-mode preferences. SubEthaEdit 2.0 is not compatible with version 1.0, so each collaborator must be running the latest version to share documents. The program is a 1.2 MB download, and is free for non-commercial use; a commercial license costs $35. [JLC]

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you used Pear Note to record a class or meeting, then forgot to stop the recording and ended up with an extra few hours that you didn't want, don't worry. You can crop off the extra recording. Just move the playhead to the end of what you want to keep, then select Crop Recording From Here from the Edit menu.
