What's New:

Version 2.4:
  • New Xcode debugger integration (see Kaleidoscope > Integration…), providing ksp and kspo commands in lldb. Check out the examples to get an idea how much superpower this can add to your debugging abilities.
  • The ksdiff tool now always accepts the --label (-l) option to send the command to a specific Kaleidoscope window.
  • The ksdiff tool now accepts input via pipe. Use - in the file list where the piped input should be, or just use it in combination with the --label option to send multiple runs of a command into one window.
  • Enjoy improved window titles. Also, the tab bar is only visible if there is more than one document in a window.
  • Various small visual improvements, particularly on macOS Big Sur. We also fixed some drawing glitches here and there.
  • Fix an issue where ksdiff would not work on macOS High Sierra unless Kaleidoscope was already running.
  • Kaleidoscope no longer gets stuck when being launched with VoiceOver turned on.
