[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - Ergonis Software today released PopChar X 5.4, a maintenance release of the company's award-winning special character helper. PopChar X is now a universal 32/64-bit binary and requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer to make best use of current system architectures. The new version also sports a new technique for inserting characters and comes with a simpler and faster animation when the PopChar window opens and closes.

The built-in automated check for new versions has been enhanced and allows optional inclusion of beta versions. Furthermore, PopChar X has been signed with a Developer ID certificate in preparation for Mountain Lion's Gatekeeper. A couple of other improvements and fixes complete the list of changes.

PopChar solves a problem faced by every technologist and multi-lingual worker. Inserting special characters into application documents can be frustrating and results in a steady loss of productivity. With PopChar, thousands of special characters are only a few clicks away. Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in your current document right away.

System Requirements:
PopChar X requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Lion.

Pricing and Availability:
