New Introduction Screencast

August 17th, 2010

Hey everyone,

in addition to our new Teaser, we also completely re-recorded the introductory screencast for Ulysses. Instead of using Ulysses 1.6, Ulysses 2 was used this time. We also added two short sections on Semantic Text Editing and Exporting. And all of that in HD!

Happy watching!

Ulysses 2.0.2 fixes Snow Leopard issues

September 15th, 2009

We have just released Ulysses 2.0.2 via the internal updater Sparkle. This update fixes a couple of smaller issues and bugs, many of them caused by Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard. We are also adding two more languages to Ulysses: Spanish and Norwegian — thanks to Victor M. Solano and Tellef Kvifte!

To get a detailed list of all changes, see the version history. You may directly download the new versions from here:

Update: I forgot to mention that this update also finally fixes the registration problems under Mac OS 10.4 Tiger.

2.0 done and I am finished…

July 13th, 2009

Well, here we are. Ulysses 2.0 is finally out, and apart from a few early hickups with the store, everything seems to go rather smoothly. This may change, of course, once everybody comes rushing in, but so be it. We’re prepared. ;)

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everybdy involved with this rather stupid idea of taking a small software company and turning it around 180 degrees. Max and I had this vague concept, and while it took us far too long to make it happen, we’re very happy with where the Soulmen are today and glad everything worked out just the way it currently does.



We are close…

… just wanted to share the status quo here:

You might notice that the disk image icon is still missing.
This is how close we are :)

New pricing for Ulysses

July 2nd, 2009

A view on a road in Mojave National Preserve, CA.

As we already announced yesterday, Ulysses 2.0 and Ulysses core 2.0 will be released on Wednesday, July 8. This Update hosts a tremendous list of features, refinements and polishes.

One change that we never spoke about and one that has not been brought up so far is the pricing. After six (!!!) years of free Updates, bringing Ulysses 1.0 to 1.6r2, we finally decided to do a paid update.

And we decided to make Ulysses cheaper. Not because we think it’s overpriced or not worth what we charge. It’s rather that we want to make it more affordable for many users. We don’t want people to choose a different application just because of the price.

As of July 8, 2009 this will be the new price tags:

  • Ulysses 2.0 full version EUR 44.99
  • Ulysses 2.0 educational EUR 34.99
  • Ulysses core 2.0 full version EUR 24.99

For all Users who purchased after January 1st, 2009 version 2.0 will be a free update. For all others there are two options:

  • Updating any version to Ulysses 2.0 full version EUR 24.99
  • Updating any version to Ulysses core 2.0 full version EUR 14.99


Ulysses 2.0 — Release Candidate

July 1st, 2009

We finally have it.
Here it is — the release candidate for Ulysses 2.0 and Ulysses core 2.0. Please feel free to download it and submit anything you do not like or would like to have in a later version to our bug tracker Mantis.

There are some very small hiccups remaining. We want to make a perfect release this time, please help us in doing so. How to help? It’s quite easy:
1) Go 2) Grab 3) A Copy.


PS: Someone interested in the new pricing?
