Send Article to a Friend

Getting into the spirit of spring cleaning, Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.1.2, which contains nothing but fixes for reported issues. The extensive list includes over 40 items that focus on improving stability and compatibility, and dedicated BBEdit users might want to read the release notes for a comprehensive look at all the changes. Aside from the abundance of bug squashes, the release also updates the About BBEdit window with a corrected link for the Caffeine Production credit and an addition of a Black Blood of the Earth credit (which is a good reminder to always check out the About window in your software). ($49.99 new from Bare Bones or the Mac App Store, free update, 7.3 MB)
