A slightly polished version of MAXON’s ResEdit plugin.

MAXON has released the source code of the old ResEdit plugin in August, 2015. I have improved the plugin by fixing some crucial bugs and crashes and enhanced the workflow and usability.

Please report any issues and ideas to the Issue Tracker.
