Coda 2.0.2

Panic has released version 2.0.2 of its Coda Web site development tool with a list of fixes and improvements that’s Dostoyevskian in its length. Among the highlights, the update “significantly” improves the speed and behavior of its syntax highlighter, adds a Jump to Style contextual menu item in Preview, makes it easier to search open folders using Find in File, and ensures that Coda’s spell checker works more reliably. Additionally, the version available from the Mac App Store can now unlock the Direct version via a new Unlock Coda menu item (though the Mac App Store hasn’t yet caught up to version 2.0.2 as of this writing). For a complete rundown of the over 100 changes in Coda 2.0.2, be sure to peruse the release notes. ($99 new, $75 upgrade from 1.0, free update, 48.8 MB)
