The Joy of Hex
December 12th, 2011

Hex Fiend 2.1 is here. Hex Fiend is a fast and clever open source hex editor for Mac OS X.

Notable new features include:

  • A binary diff viewer
  • Support for reading raw devices (after authentication, natch)
  • Selectable string encoding for the text view
  • Bookmarks
  • Transient untitled documents (aka "reuse that empty Untitled window")
  • Undo preserved across saves, if it can be done efficiently
  • Fresh new paint

Hex Fiend is now hosted on GitHub, which should make contributing patches easier for everyone.
