Last Update:May 25 / 2018

News: Version 8.5.8144 has been released.  A small release containing two minor bug fixes and one more significant.  If you regularly process large files (> 10,000 lines) and also use Color Highlighting, please ensure you upgrade to this release.  The error would be quite rare, but could result in data corruption.

If you upgrade, all your settings and customizations will be preserved. Simply install 'over the top' of the existing version, do not un-install and re-install. See the Change Log for full details.

Current releases of SPFLite are now considered 'stabilized' i.e. we will no longer be undertaking any further major enhancements. We will of course continue to maintain SPFLite and correct any problems that are reported. Suggestions for small changes or enhancements will still be considered;  we're just not going to be tackling anything major.

Note for XP users:  Unfortunately, the 8.3 release will probably not function on XP level systems.   There is a problem related to the version level of the Visual C runtime libraries which we have not been able to resolve.  As XP itself is no longer supported by Microsoft, there are probably very few users still running it.  We will keep the last 8.2 release available on the download page indefinitely.

You can review the Change Log,  the complete documentation, or go directly to the Download Page.

Is this you?

    • Looking for a line-oriented ISPF style editor because Windows character-mode text editors just don't do it for you?
    • Been a loyal Tritus SPF or SPF/PC user and feel 'left behind' now that they're gone?
    • Miss ISPF features like Exclude, Overlay, Bounds, Sort, Hex mode, etc.?
    • Like to tweak and customize your edit environment?
    • Want support for special file formats, like EBCDIC, RECFM=V or RECFM=F, and Unicode?
    • A Hercules mainframe emulator user who wants to SUBMIT jobs and have a practical SYSOUT browser?
    • Want power-user features other editors don't have?  Even ISPF?

Well, maybe you've found the solution: SPFLite

It won't be everything ISPF/PDF is (it is called Lite) but it will surprise you with its flexibility, customization features, and additional commands and editing concepts to enhance your ability to 'get the job done'.  SPFLite has been continually developed and enhanced far beyond its humble beginnings.  Whether you have an SPF/ISPF background or not, you should find SPFLite to be a powerful and useful editing facility.

Please try it out and let us know what you think.  Regardless of whether you end up using it, or whether you register or not, we welcome all your comments, good and bad.  The best place to leave your comments is on the SPFLite Forum.
