Early this morning iTunes Connect (the Apple service we developers use to interact with the Mac App Store) had a nice surprise: mere hours after submitting Balthisar Tidy and Balthisar Tidy for Work version 3.5 for review, they are available now!
- Balthisar Tidy 3.5.0 (App Store)
- Balthisar Tidy for Work 3.5.0 (App Store)
- Balthisar Tidy 3.5.0 (from this website)
Version 3.5 is mostly a maintenance update, but also includes a cool, new feature: live browser previews! Now you can instantly inspect the result of the Source HTML or the Tidy HTML to be sure that Tidy didn’t do something that affects your output. And if you’re a Balthisar Tidy for Work user, you get an added bonus: You can optionally preview the before and after side-by-side, over-and-under, and scroll-locked. You’ll never have to doubt that HTML Tidy is doing something undesirable.
This change replaces the previous Messages Table with a “Feedback Panel,” a multipurpose pane for communicating all output to you. Certainly the all-important Messages Table is still present, but the multi-page interface lets you switch to the Browser Preview instantly.
Additionally version 3.5 ships with HTACG HTML Tidy 5.3.1, which gives you
all of the bug fixes and improvement the folks over at HTACG have been working
on, including the new
escape-scripts Tidy option.
