BBEdit 10.0.1

After a major upgrade, a quick cleanup release is commonplace, as subtle bugs reveal themselves in real-world usage. Bare Bones Software has now released BBEdit 10.0.1 for that reason, fixing a variety of bugs in the latest version of the powerful text editor, some of which could manifest themselves as crashes. Other changes in the release include additional expert preferences, cosmetic fixes, and more. For full details on BBEdit 10’s new features, see “BBEdit 10 Improves UI, HTML Markup, and EPUB Editing” (19 July 2011). Also, BBEdit 10 is now available from the Mac App Store, although purchasing it there means that you cannot perform authenticated saves and you’ll have to download the command-line tools separately. ($39.99 new from Bare Bones or the Mac App Store — $49.99 after 19 October 2011, free update, 14.3 MB, release notes)
