A powerful, portable Notepad replacement

CudaText is a powerful plain text editor, designed for programmers but also very accessible to other users.

The program's tabbed interface enables opening several documents at one time. These are saved and reopened by default, too, so you can close CudaText at any time and carry on where you left off later.

Tabs may be split horizontally or vertically, so for example you're able to open two independently scrolling windows for the same file.

It's also possible to open tabs in groups, allowing you to compare two or more files side by side.

There's support for multiple selections. Select one paragraph, hold down Ctrl as you select a second in some distant part of the document, and you can operate on them both at once.

Versatile case conversion options include UPPER CASE, lower case, Title Case, Sentence case or inverted case.

If you're a developer then you'll appreciate the syntax highlighting and HTML/ CSS support (autocompletion, HTML color codes underline, picture viewing), code folding, code tree structure and more.

The program also provides a host of plugins to support features like code snippets, macros, a color picker, and more. NOTE - this is the 64-bit version

What's new in 1.59 (see changelog for more)?

+ add: detection of UTF16 LE/BE without BOM
+ add: grouping modes "6 vert" and "6 horz"
+ add: Code Tree filter: each tab has its own filter text (initially empty)

+ add: Project Manager option "Open files by double-click"
+ add: improved lexer HTML: highlight <tag style="..."> content with CSS lexer

+ add: on folding a range, caret(s) pos is corrected if it was inside that range

- fix: CSS autocompletion inside <tag style="..."> didn't work with multiline string


CudaText is a nicely-designed text editor, immediately accessible as a capable Notepad replacement, but with a pile of developer-oriented extras for those who need them.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.81

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.81

- You can now use Siri to send messages to WhatsApp groups.
- Group voice and video calls are now available. When you're in a call, tap the “Add Participant” icon. Group calls support up to 4 total participants.
