Fraise is a fork of the once open-source text editor Smultron (now closed-source). It features all the same editing capabilities as Smultron. As the developer Jean-Fraiçois Moy notes on the MacUpdate? page, Fraise is no longer active or being maintained:
- I am the developer of Fraise and it has indeed been abandoned. As I stated earlier, improving Fraise would have required a big rewriting of the actual code (what Peter Borg did with Smultron 4.0) and I don't see the point to have two really close softwares (Smultron / Fraise) now that Peter Borg has decided to continue the development.
- I understand that Fraise is the open source and free alternative to Smultron, but there is so many free text editors out there nowadays that I think it would not bring too much interest if I developed Fraise further.
