The editors ME (Martin's Editor) and WSedit (Wordstar DOS like Editor) for Linux (gtk2) and Macintosh (MacOSX) are now available. Please collect the malfunctions and send them to me. All Editor versions besides the OS/2 - eComStation version are now generated by a different programming environment.

I cannot test all functionality on all OS. I really need your feedback!

New in ME and WSedit beta 10: "File - Additional Window" opens an additional editor window for the same file. Changes in one editor are immediately visible in the other editor.
