Bean is lean, fast, and uncluttered. If you get depressed at the thought of firing up MS Word or OpenOffice, try Bean. If you use TextEdit but have to jump through hoops just to get a word count or change the margins, try Bean. If you desire a simple, beautiful writing environment, try Bean.
What's new in this version:
Reverted bugfix 120909-1 which was supposed to allow images having names containing non-ascii characters to save in .rtfd and .bean format (121129-1). The bugfix was incorrect and also caused a larger problem, preventing headers and footers to save in .rtfd and .bean documents.
