Tumult Whisk 2.6.0 Update Now Available

Tumult Whisk App Icon

Tumult Whisk 2.6 is a small feature and bugfix update to the lightweight HTML and PHP editor with a live preview. It features improved compatibility with the upcoming macOS 12 Monterey.

What’s new in Tumult Whisk 2.6:

  • PHP is for Pretty Home Pages: Whisk now includes its own PHP 7.4 installation because the system installation is being removed in macOS 12 Monterey. A new preference UI will automatically detect versions installed on your machine and more simply allow their selection.
  • Red Alert!: If your JavaScript style uses alert() calls for debugging, you’ll be back in the game with Whisk’s new dialog windows for alert(), confirm(), and prompt().
  • Other Tweaks: there are a few other bug fixes and changes to improve the product.
