Bare Bones Software has released version 4.0 of TextWrangler, a major update of the free general-purpose text editor sibling to the company’s flagship text and HTML editor BBEdit. The release brings TextWrangler up to speed with many elements from BBEdit 10.1, including the adoption of its editing window interface (with Currently Open Documents and Recent Documents panes) plus the capability of restoring previously open documents (even if unsaved) when relaunching. TextWrangler now requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later, and it’s compatible with 10.7 Lion’s full-screen mode. Other changes include improved handling of scripts (whether they be AppleScript scripts, Automator actions, or Unix scripts), the addition of live searching within the app plus searching text inside Zip archives, and a “modernized” Find Differences dialog box. For a complete rundown of the voluminous additions and tweaks to this version, be sure to read the lengthy release notes. (Free from Bare Bones Software and the Mac App Store, 5.2 MB)
