QD was and is one of the best text editors available for the QL. In fact when I do work on QL software I almost exclusively use it, often more than 10 windows at the same time. According to the copyright it was first released in 1988, so basically on its 30th birthday, I can now provide this nice piece of software for free thanks to permission of its author Jochen Merz.

I improved the compatibility to the QL 4-colour mode a little bit (by allowing the mode 4 editor colours to be configured separately) and allowed myself to call this version “QD 2018”. Enjoy!
