Panic is Working on Coda Next, and A Second Video Game After Firewatch

Panic, one of the most popular developers for quality iOS and Mac software, have published their 2017 Report that takes a look at what has happened at the company last year.

There’s a lot to gather from there, so I recommend that you add the URL to your favorite “read later” app. But if you’re still in a hurry, here are some notable bits from it:

The company released Transmit 5 and shipped a record total of 39 releases across all their apps. They also improved their QA process and their help library, started releasing tutorial videos on their official YouTube channel and also improved the infrastructure powering their websites.

In the coming months, Panic will publish Firewatch for Nintendo Switch and work is underway for “Coda Next”, which is what they’re calling “a total rewrite of our macOS version of Coda”. Last but not the least, there’s this:

A Second Game

Soon we will also announce the second video game we’ll be publishing! The follow-up to our hit game Firewatch will be a new game from a different studio that is not at all like Firewatch but is absolutely delightful. Keep an eye on our blog and Twitter for the big reveal.

Panic is one of the most revered companies out there, and I can’t wait to see what 2018 is going to be like for them.




Assembla Releases Cornerstone 4 with Support for Shelving and Checkpointing Features

Earlier this year, Cornerstone — the popular and possibly the best Subversion (SVN) client for Mac was acquired by Assembla. The company has been working on a major update to Cornerstone over the last three months, which was released this month in the form of Cornerstone 4.

Cornerstone 4 is the first and only Mac SVN app with support for Shelving and Checkpointing features of SVN. Shelving allows you to temporarily save your uncommitted modifications (that is, “shelve” them) and return to the main working tree. Checkpointing allows you to create checkpoints that you can jump back to when working locally. Both these features have been long requested by the community, so it’s good to see them make their way into the app.

Cornerstone 4 is available via a recurring subscription of $79/year.


Things 3 Adds Collapsable Areas, Searchable Tags, Performance Improvements, and More with Version 3.5

Things 3 is my go to task manager and it has been amazing seeing it improve so much with updates. I’ve written about Things before and Things 3 was pretty damn awesome at launch. Today’s update is fantastic too.

After recently adding URL schemes, Cultured Code is back with Things 3.5 that adds a ton of new stuff. Areas are finally collapsable. You can now hide stuff you don’t want to see. Tags are now searchable from the drop down and you can even search for untagged items with “No Tag”. Things now has a new Paste option on iOS and full copy-paste support on macOS with support for updating existing items using URLs as well. If you, like me, enjoy the Today Widget, it has inline icons for certain items and more.

Things 3.5 is a free update to Things 3 that is available on iPhone, iPad, and macOS.
