The Blue Technologies Group announced Monday that it was no more, and that a new company called The Soulmen - comprised of Blue Technologies veterans - would arise in its place to take over development and distribution of the text editor Ulysses. The Soulmen then promptly announced that it was releasing Ulysses 2.0, a major upgrade to the app.
Ulysses is a text editor aimed at creative writers and authors, and the upgrade to version 2.0 includes many and sundry new features, including a new interface. Our own John Martellaro reviewed version 1.x of the app in his comprehensive shootout of text editors.
New features include:
- Editor Bookmarks And Style-Jumpers
- Project Templates
- Notes In Console Mode
- Document Trash
- "Unfiled" Filter
- Highlighted Search Terms
- Document Counts
- Editor Selection Highlight
The company also included several fixes for past issues in the update.
Ulysses 2.0 is priced at €44.99 (US$62.92 as of this writing), and upgrades from any version of 1.x of the app is priced at €24.99 ($34.95). An educational license is offered at €34.99 ($48.94).
