VoodooPad 2.1 beta 4 is ready.

I hate threads. Especially the ones that make VoodooPad crash.


I discovered some interesting behavior when subclassing NSDocument yesterday. Don't rely on [self fileName] while you are inside dataRepresentationOfType:, because [self fileName] just might be null... like when you are saving an existing document that lives on .mac. Is that a bug? I'm not sure. Maybe I'll report it for good measure.

10.4 added support for tables and ordered lists in standard NSTextViews- and VoodooPad on 10.4 now takes advantage of that. There are now a couple of new menus "Tables..., Lists..." to add those elements. I'd pat myself on the back for a job well done, but really all I had to do was add a couple of new menu items. Cocoa took care of the rest.
