I had moved DTRichTextEditor to be Open Source because I wanted bright individuals to be able to contribute to this complex component. I had hatched the plan to ask people who are using the component commercially to set a bounty for fixed issues. This is the second release where a bounty was successfully captured.
This is a big update for DTCoreText, maybe even deserving of a minor version bump. It aggregates fixes and enhancements contributed over more than 4 months. This kind of proves that DTCoreText is alive and getting better all the time.
This maintenance update fixes a few bugs in the ASN.1 parser and adds support for modules.
Development on DTRichTextEditor had started in 2011, several years before Apple revamped the internals of UITextView to TextKit. I based it on DTCoreText – which had been open source from the start – and added a custom magnifying glass to mimic the one provided by the system. As of today, I am making it Open Source.
Our DTPinLockController is one of the oldest components we’ve been selling on Cocoanetics.com. It mimics the way the passcode lock screen on iOS works. Thanks to the massive reworking by René Pirringer and Stefan Gugarel there is now a new 2.0 version which supports all the latest iOS devices.
