HexFiend 1.1.1 Released as Open Source

Peter Ammon has released his excellent hex editor HexFiend — it’s disk-based rather than memory-based, so you can use it to examine massive files — as open source, under a BSD-style license. Particularly interesting to Cocoa developers, given that Ammon works on the AppKit team at Apple. It’s also not just a “here’s an archive of the source code” release — Ammon has written a wiki where HexFiend’s design is very well documented.
