There are some great additions in this new version, such as:
- Unicode support (at long last!)
- Live FTP editing
- Customizable HTML toolbar
- Code folding
My favorite new feature has to be Unicode support. I use TopStyle to edit all of FeedDemon’s CSS, HTML, XML and XSL files, and it’s great to finally be able to save them as UTF-8/UTF-16 in TopStyle.
If you’d like to try it out, stop by Stefan’s TopStyle 4 site to download it. This is a beta, of course, so it comes with the usual warnings about not downloading it unless you’re comfortable using unfinished software. That said, as long as you install TopStyle 4 in a different folder than TopStyle 3, you can still run both versions at the same time – so you can try out TopStyle 4 without fear of messing with the current version.
PS: Just a reminder that since TopStyle 4 is no longer “mine,” questions and comments about TopStyle 4 should be posted to Stefan’s TopStyle 4 newsgroups rather than to NewsGator’s TopStyle forums. However, questions about TopStyle 3.5 should still be posted in our forums.
