Panic reveals Coda OS X and iOS goals

Panic's Coda has long been a favourite of many OS X-based web designers and version 2 has arrived for Mac, along with Diet Coda – a Retina-ready iPad app for quick edits on the go that also doubles as a dedicated preview window for owners of the Mac version.

According to Panic co-founder Cabel Sasser, Panic felt it had a solid core with the original Coda, and the new release was started with three major goals in mind: adding features many people were asking for, cleaning up UI issues, and surprising people. "So we added tons of new features. We removed some weird UI metaphors, like tabs that could look like a terminal but really have a document 'behind' them – in Coda 2, every tab is exactly what it says it is. And we tried to surprise, coming up with our interesting 'visual tabs', adding unexpected things such as a MySQL editor and going extra crazy with AirPreview which lets you use your iPad as a preview window."
