What’s new in Tumult Whisk 2.5:

  • Built for Apple Silicon: Tumult Whisk is built as a Universal application that will run natively on Apple Silicon and older Intel-based Macs. Using one of Apple’s new “M1”-based Macs will make your edits snappier. Read more about Whisk’s long and fruitful lifespan on Mac OS.
  • Compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur: A new icon, improved color scheme, and many UI tweaks make Tumult Whisk a natural citizen of the newest version of macOS. Don’t worry if you’re not ready to upgrade your system; it still runs great on OS X 10.11 Yosemite and later (10.12+ for the Mac App Store version).
  • Source Editor Refinements: Command-slash will toggle line comments, tabbing on a multi-line selection will indent, and there’s a new preference to set the tab width.
  • Localization: The app has been translated into German, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.
  • Other Enhancements: there is color swatch opacity, zooming improvements, a save toolbar button, bug fixes, and UI tweaks
