jEdit 5 is a free contender and users would be wise to check that out. For developers it can be outfitted with enough plugins to become a simple IDE. I couldn't get it listed as an alternative. It would seem some apps are blocked for being listed as some do turn up right away, but it could also be that an app needs to be suggested by several to show up. If you feel jEdit is comparable then please suggest it.

Yes, but this is a self-imposed limitation issue on Macupdates part. As is foregoing releases for betas. I told you guys from the get go to learn from the old versiontracker, but you just refuse and keep going. Are you not here to serve the global Mac community and becoming a strong contender to MAS? If not, that's very sad indeed. That said, you're still the best! If only because Cnet, once bought, decided to smother the versiontracker way .

Um,... are you talking about *this* jEdit https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11720/jedit which we've listed for more than three years?

A Java app that requires OS X 10.7?

@Mikael B... Yes. If you right-click on the application icon and choose "Show Package Contents," then look inside the /Contents directory, you'll see a Java directory, which contains much of the Java code; and a PlugIns directory which contains the Java Development Kit (JDK).

@MacUpdate-Jess, I have no idea what you're trying to say. Instead I downloaded the X64 version of the app. It runs and basic functions works in OS X 10.6.8 on my 64bit machine. The *current version* 4.1.11 is also available for OS X 10.4 and later or for OS X 10.6 and earlier. Effectively EditRocket requires OS X 10.4 and later and the differences for the two versions is more likely to be X64 vs x32 and PPC. This would mean your listed requirement for OS X 10.7 is wrong, at least in practice. I think the info on the developers site is more likely of being a packaging simplification.

@Mikael B... There is a certain amount of simplification necessary on our site because of space restraints. We can't display all the information you would find on a developer's site. And when it comes to the functionality of an application, we can't really argue with a developer, telling him or her that he or she is wrong about the requirements for the application. For the sake of completeness, here's everything the developer has to say about OS requirements: "There are two editions of EditRocket for Mac OS X. The 64-bit only edition requires OS X 10.7 (Lion) or newer. The other edition of EditRocket requires OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or newer. If running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or 10.7 (Lion), the 64-bit only version of EditRocket is recommended unless you have a retina display, or you are manually booting into 32-bit mode. In that case, the universal version of EditRocket is recommended. For best results, use of one of the following operating systems is recommended: OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), OS X 10.7 (Lion), OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), OS X 10.5 (Leopard), or OS X 10.4 (Tiger). "To install, download the editrocket4_1_11_x64.dmg (for Lion or Mountain Lion) or editrocket4_1_11.dmg (for older OS X versions or if manually booting into 32-bit mode or you have a retina display) file to your machine. Double click the .dmg file. This should open a window showing EditRocket.app. Drag EditRocket.app to your Applications folder or wherever you want it to reside. Double-click the EditRocket.app file to launch EditRocket." Bear in mind that, while you may have EditRocket running under OS X 10.6.8 on a 64-bit machine, there may be portions of the developer's code which won't execute properly, causing instability in the application. I'm just sayin'...

My main point is still that the *current version* 4.1.11 is available for OS X 10.4 and later. Therefore the actual requirements as informed by the developer are just that for this version. This could change of course, but this is what is now.

@Mikael B... OK, I think I understand the cause of the confusion. The information posted under "Requirements" (in the main body of the listing) and under "Platform" (in the Information tab to the right of these reviews/comments) are based on the file available from the "Download" link in the links bar. These listed requirements do not pertain to any files available from a variant download--such as that obtained from the "Download for OS X 10.4.11"--nor to those available through "Related Links."
