ghex 4.alpha.1

About GHex

GHex is a hex editor for the GNOME desktop.

GHex can load raw data from binary files and display them for editing
in the traditional hex editor view. The display is split in two
columns, with hexadecimal values in one column and the ASCII
representation in the other. A useful tool for working with raw data.


This is the first alpha release of GHex with GTK4 support.  As it has been
substantially reworked from GHex 3.x, it will require some substantial testing
and translation updates.

Visibly to the end user, some new features include:

 - More modern and up-to-date look and feel, consistent with the GNOME HIG.

 - Tabbed interface.

 - Dark Mode (by default, the GTK system-wide "prefer-dark-theme" setting is
   used, but can be overridden with a checkbox and a switch in the Preferences

 - libadwaita colour compatibility; if you use the Adwaita theme and GNOME
   apps that utilize libadwaita, GHex will (read: should) match the colour
   scheme. libadwaita is not a planned dependency for GHex at this time as many
   of its users are GTK users who do not run GNOME, and I want to keep GHex's
   dependency requirements to a minimum.

 - Custom clipboard data, for less error-prone copying and pasting of binary
   data; this will fall back to plaintext when unavailable.

 - Copy and Paste Special dialogs, which allow you to, for instance, copy and
   paste hex pairs from GHex into other applications, and to paste hex pairs
   from other applications into GHex.
