You read correctly! Many people have asked for our Editors for quite a while and we've always wanted to fulfil that wish. We're getting really close now, as we're now launching both Trine Enchanted Edition and Trine 2 editor BETAs on Steam!
There are two different editors, and a different Beta for both of them. Even though the editors look alike, there are some differences, which is why we have created separate forum discussions for both of them. Please direct your questions and possible issue reports to the relevant forum discussion. You can also contact us by email: support[at]frozenbyte[dot]com. Also pay attention to which discussion you are posting to; the editors have some differences, so make sure to post in the correct discussion or clearly mention the editor version in your email.

More information at our wiki page
Note that the editors are pretty difficult to use if you don't know what you're doing, and there's very little documentation or tooltips - this is actually one of the reasons we've held off releasing the editors to the public before. There still aren't very thorough instructions, but we have opened a wiki page (linked above) and provided some very basic instructions on how to use our editors. It's an open wiki after you've registered, so anyone can edit and post information, and we hope that people will start to share their knowledge with everyone. We'll also be updating the wiki ourselves and tracking that all the instructions are correct and up-to-date.
The Frozenbyte Editor is a very diverse tool. This is what we use to make games like Trine and Trine 2, and it’s based entirely on our own technology. You can edit existing maps, make new maps and do all kinds of things with it. If this sounds like fun, go a head and play and experiment!
Note: Both public editors are still in BETA stage, so you're likely to run into some issues. We appreciate feedback and bug reports (direct those to the linked forum discussions above). Just remember to give as detailed a description of your issue as possible and also include the Beta's version number in your report.
We launched a beta of the Enchanted Edition on Steam in June, and now we are happy to report the time has come for the official launch.
Check out the launch trailer below and prepare to be enchanted. :)
You can read more about the Enchanted Edition from our blog and from the Trine Enchanted Edition page at our website. The short version below:
The Enchanted Edition is a free update for Trine with added features, such as the online multiplayer. The updated version does not impact the original game. Instead, both versions are available and can be selected from the game launcher. At the moment the Enchanted Edition is only available in Steam for Windows, but we will be adding the Mac and Linux versions afterwards.
We also want to give big thanks to the Steam community! We have received lots of support and help with the beta. Working on the Enchanted Edition for you wonderful people has been great.
But enough, talk, right? We'll shut up (in a bit) and leave you a screenshot featuring the three heroes below. You can see more enchanting screenshots from our blog post. Have fun playing! :)

"Apart from the beautiful graphics, what made the game stand out was just how spot-on everything was--whether it was the controls, the interactions between the three characters, or the puzzle-solving mechanics, it's clear the developers spent a lot of time refining the gameplay." full review
