This is still a great app. I'm interested if anyone has a similar product, which is actively supported.

This product is no longer available. The online store will let you buy a license, but you will not be able to register and use it.

When you start up the app, it says it has expired, regardless of whether you have previously trialled it or not.

Existing copies still work, but unless you migrate when using a new machine, it looks like there won't be a possibility to reinstall.

Just a quick note to let folks know that as of version 1.2 Anthracite now requires OS X 10.3.8 or newer. If you still need Jaguar support, 1.1.2 is still available, but we of course recommend that you stay upgraded to the latest version of both MacOS X and Anthracite.

I've been interested in--and tinkering with--this program for a while, and feel like I should pipe in with a comment here: This is the kind of software that sneaks up on you, and if you're even remotely conversant on the tech side, it's a godsend. The cool thing about OS X is how well it integrates a BSD command-line versatility with an amazingly elegant GUI. All the same, a very obvious gap still exists between the two for certain purposes. Nothing else I've seen offers the kind of bridge this program does for some very specific gaps.

And I have to say that from my experience, support is first rate. This is a company run by people who know what they're doing, and haven't lost the enthusiasm for it somewhere along the way.

Used this program a lot, and I'm looking forward to continuing with this release. The previous was amazing: one of the best products I've used in a long time--it more fills the niche for GUI mac user who needs to extract and compile text, data, etc. from files, web searches, etc... It's like a Swiss army knife for that sort of thing. Haven't even scratched the surface, though, of what I suspect it can pull off. Kudos to the developer.

Oh my god. I love it! Very handy if you have to filter out specific information from websites. Works great!
