Yes. It does. He sold it, to the new owner, and the web page it used to 
have has disappeared for a simple sales page. I used Pepper for quite 
some time. , and even wrote a few extensions. It was a nice editor, but 
it's hard to compete with Alpha/Emacs/BBEdit already out there, with 
large user groups writing extensions.
