This is the last of 31 updates of 227 installed with MacUpdate Desktop 6 and the downloaded version is the same as what's installed "0xED 1.1.3".

This update still shows in MU6.

Downloads from developer are also "0xED 1.1.3".

MU6 is looking for "1.1.3".

Can this be fixed?

Thanks ... Ken

1.1.1 appears to have corrected the complaint I had for 1.1.0 (i.e., editing hex bytes) so I am posting this as a separate review to somewhat"neutralize" my previous low rating with a higher one.

I would be nice if the hex and text search boxes were longer and on separate lines or toggled (like old Resorcerer) and also had a equally long replace (optionally "all") box (also like Resorcerer).

1.1.0 is useless as a hex editor. For example in earlier versions (I have 1.0.10) I could, say, select a byte in the hex display and copy/paste "12" from a text file into the hex display. This latest version ends up clobbering two bytes with the ASCII value of the byte I want to change, i.e., 0x3132. This makes it impossible to write down a desired hex sequence and copy/paste into the hex display. As I said 1.0.10 did it the expected way. So I recommend sticking to that version.

It's fast, it's easy, it's free. I don't normally use this program for commercial purposes, however is occasionally useful at work to view unknown filetypes or damaged files that are sent to me.

The best OSX hex editor available. Not full of features (even when I wouldn't use most of them in the real world), but fast and reliable.

Would love to hear if any plugin exist!

Very useful. This is the only hex editor I've found that handles different text encodings.
