Bear 2.0 Beta Released

Wow! What a nice surprise. The Bear 2.0 beta (previously codenamed Panda while in alpha testing) has been released today.

I can remember asking the development team years back if they could update Bear 1.0 at the time so that its default view, when not writing or editing, was a preview mode. The reason for this is that when you’re keeping a knowledge base, you’re not just creating / writing within it but you’re also reflecting back upon it and reading it as well.

Not only did the Bear development think this was a decent idea but they expanded and improved upon the idea much more so than I could ever imagined. In effect, the entire default view of your notes are like a beautiful preview mode and only when you edit a particular part of a note, like a bolded word, does the markdown appear so that it can be edited but only for the specific words that you’re editing.

Needless to say, it’s fricken amazing and without a doubt I believe it will set a completely new precedent for Markdown editors in the years to come.
