Revision History




Script Library


In 1995, Jedit was developed to add an editor function to our telecom software product "Jterm." The beta version, 1.x, was provided as freeware to Japanese Macintosh users through online and won several prizes.

In November 1997, we released version 2.0. This version offered easy operation, macro functions, AppleScript, and compatibility with MacOS 8. Jedit 2.0 was shipped as shareware and become the popular application for tens of thousands of Japanese Macintosh users.

In April 1999, we released version 3.0. It supports many features for multi-media age, multi-font, multi-style and multi-color, multiple Undo/Redo, ability to import sounds, images, QuickTime files, QuickDraw 3D files and file aliases.

Our newest Jedit4.0 supports Mac OS X, the new and innovative OS. While maintaining its simplicity, version 4.0 is a completely new editor that offers faster operation, along with an entire set of powerfull features, as follows:
