Site Breaks Street Date With Review of New Panic Application

Screenshot-Replaced
I’ve got good news and bad. The good news is that Panic software, the makers of such venerated Mac-only shareware apps as Transmit, Unison and the much-mourned Audion, will soon release a new, extremely powerful web-development program, Coda. The bad news is that I shouldn’t already know this: MacApper ran a review a day before the official announcement and even posted screenshots. The cat’s out of the bag now, so the review stays, but Panic had the screenshots taken down shortly after the offending blurb popped up. It’ll all be public in a few hours anyway. The app sounds sweet, by the way:

Which brings me to the built in editor. For me this is really the deal maker. One of the problems I have had switching to a Mac is the editors on OS X. They aren’t bad, but they aren’t great either. Having said that, I think the guys at Panic are off to a really great start with their own editor. All of the usual languages are supported and styled appropriately including: CSS, HTML, Javascript, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, SQL, XML, and straight text.

Dig it.

    I also love a lot of the software that Panic have produced. I’m a registered owner of Transmit – one of those “can’t live without” apps. I was one of the beta testers of Unison, and while excellently thought out and executed I found that I’m no longer a fan of Newsgroups. Audion was, for me, their benchmark app and remains to be, in my view, the audio app which all others (iTunes included) have tried to match/beat.

    As for this new offering… I can’t wait to try it out. I’m a TextMate + CSSEdit owner and find them to be a great team, so Panic will have their work cut out to force me to part with more of my limited cash!
