Hopper 4 Announced

Vincent Bénony:

Starting with Hopper v4, there is no floating windows anymore: now there is this Display Mode concept, which allows you to look at the content of the file using different kind of representation.

[…]

Hopper now features a complete Swift name demangler. No more cryptic names in files written in Swift.

[…]

In order to make ASM easier to read, Hopper gives different colors to the objects in the disassembly view, according to its analysis. For instance, stack variables have a different color from numbers, or registers.

[…]

Hopper v4 analyses procedures, and collect all the methods called. He is also capable of detecting some indirect calls, like Objective-C messages.

[…]

At the moment, there is no precise ETA, but Hopper v4 will be released before the end of the year, hopefully before the end of November.

And now, the big news: Hopper v4 will be a free update for the owners of a v3 license.

This looks great. Meanwhile, there are scripts for Swift demangling.

The python REPL will be a great addition as well. Hoping it'll lead to more people creating and sharing scripts (myself included).

And the free upgrade feels super generous, especially for a developer audience that usually has a better understanding/appreciation of the work involved for major upgrades.
