Thank you for your review
WASTE is a text editing library for Mac OS X programmers: a piece of software that allows developers of Mac applications to add text display and editing features to their own programs. WASTE stands for WorldScript-Aware Styled Text Engine, although nowadays, that acronym is no longer accurate, since WASTE 3.0 no longer relies on WorldScript technology, but uses ATSUI instead.

What's New

Version 3.0d8:
  • The app was completely rewritten from scratch to be fully Unicode-savvy. It is now based on ATSUI and Quartz (Core Graphics). However, its API is mostly compatible with WASTE 2.1, so it should be relatively painless for WASTE-using applications to adopt version 3.0.


Mac OS X 10.3 or later
