Bare Bones Software has updated its flagship HTML and text editor BBEdit to version 9.6.3. The update consists solely of bug fixes, including resolutions for crashes that could occur when deleting files from folders watched by a project file list, a crash in the CSS formatter when faced with certain rule malfunctions, and a hang when the Find Differences command encountered a permissions problem. Also corrected are memory consumption issues, text formatting bugs, and various syntax coloration glitches. Full release notes are available at Bare Bones’ Web site. The free TextWrangler, BBEdit’s younger brother, received mostly the same under-the-hood fixes in its 3.5.3 release. (BBEdit: free update, $99.99 new, 15.9 MB; TextWrangler: free, 13 MB)
Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores
If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.

And since I've bothered to make a comment, I'd like to add my voice to the chorus of praise for this excellent editor.
This facility is extremely useful when saving files directly to a remote server, where permissions often are a problem. Removing it from the AppStore version makes this version of BBEdit far less useful.
Apple and Bare Bones should make this clear, instead of burying it in the release notes for BBEdit 9.6.3.
