I'm pleased to report that I have been able to drag BlogAssist, my handy tool to help with HTML markup, into 2012: it is now fully sandboxed, providing increased security, and signed with an Apple-issued "Developer ID" so it plays nicely with Mountain Lion.
I also raised the minimum OS version from Leopard (10.5) to Lion (10.7). I know some people are still on Snow Leopard (and a tiny percentage still on Leopard), but I felt it was worthwhile moving to Lion, as the majority of customers are on this OS (and soon will be moving up to Mountain Lion), and it enables me to leverage lots of great OS features moving forward.
It is now a 64-bit app... which isn't really necessary from a data perspective (BlogAssist doesn't use lots of data), but means it uses the "modern runtime", which offers some great benefits on the backend.
This release also includes handy new substitution preferences, which non-English customers will particularly enjoy (it's something my French localizer originally asked for). Easily convert symbols and accented characters into their HTML entities.
This is a beta release, with lots of big infrastructural changes, so please let me know if you find any issues. It all seems fine in my testing, though. BlogAssist is a simple app, which is why I moved it to Lion, 64-bit, sandboxing and Developer ID first.
Here are the full release notes:
