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)
Single Time Machine Backups
Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.
