Java News from Tuesday, March 29, 2005

Bare Bones Software has released version 8.1 of BBEdit, my preferred text editor on the Mac. The major new feature is support for the Subversion source code control system. BBEdit is $179 payware. Upgrades from 8.0 are free. They're $49 for 7.0 owners and $59 for owners of earlier versions. Mac OS X 10.3.5 or later is required.

Gaudenz Alder has released JGraph 5.4.4, a free-as-in-speech (Mozilla Public License/LGPL) graph component for Swing that requires Java 1.4 or later. JGraph is accompanied by Graphpad, an open-source diagram editor for Swing that offers Automatic Layout, Printing, Zoom, and much more. It is available in English, German and French. This release fixes a few bugs and adds some small features and API.
