tRev is Jerry Daniel's new script editor, so while GLX2 is still
available, I imagine that it is no longer being actively maintained or
upgraded. It also doesn't play very nicely with the more recent
versions of Rev.

The main difference is that tRev is a standalone app and does not run
as part of the Rev IDE. It operates outside the IDE communicating via
sockets.
It is extremely stable, very fast, clean & easy to use. I thoroughly
recommend it. (I am not connected with Jerry in any way, I just use
his products.)

You can find out more about it at <http://reveditor.com/> and I
suggest watching the videos, especially some of the earlier ones, to
see how it works and to learn how to access all it's features. THE FAQ
section also has a very good summary
<http://reveditor.com/frequently-asked-questions-27>.

There is a link at the revEditor site to buy it from the revSelect
store, but I'm not sure if there is an upgrade deal for GLX users. I
suggest you email Jerry <jerry at reveditor.com> to check this.

Cheers,
Sarah
