Bare Bones Releases BBEdit 7.0 -- One wouldn't expect to make a big deal out of a text editor, yet we've run across people who think the Finder is nothing more than an obstacle to launching BBEdit. Bare Bones Software has updated its flagship application to version 7.0, incorporating a number of improvements such as making it easier to work on files from multiple Web sites, support for editing rectangular regions of text, Quartz text smoothing, a Paste Previous Clipboard command, and more. A full version of BBEdit 7.0 costs $180; owners of BBEdit Lite, Adobe GoLive, or Macromedia Dreamweaver can cross-upgrade for $120. Those upgrading from earlier versions can pay $50 until 31-Dec-02, or $60 after 01-Jan-03 if you're running BBEdit 6.1 or earlier (BBEdit 6.5 owners retain the $50 pricing going into 2003). If you happened to purchase and register BBEdit 6.5 on or after 01-Sep-02, disregard the previous details and expect your free upgrade within the next two to three weeks. [JLC]
Open Files from BBEdit Subversion Log
When you use BBEdit's Subversion client capabilities to update the working copy of your Subversion repository, BBEdit always displays the Subversion.log file, showing any changes. If you want to work on one of the files that appears as being added or updated, just select the full pathname and choose File > Open Selection (or just hit Command-D). This trick should also work any time you see a pathname within a BBEdit document.
