BBEdit 10.5.2

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.2, delivering fixes large and small for over 40 customer-reported issues. Among the highlights, the update now displays the name of each document as it’s opened in the “Restoring [BBEdit] state” panel, fixes a bug with Save a Copy that would result in data loss “if the wrong choices were made,” ensures that accurate results are returned in the pre-comparison screening for multi-file Find Differences, fixes BBEdit’s Search and Replace Automator action for grep-based searches, squashes a bug that would return stale Clipboard contents in operations that required a clipboard import from an external application, and stops BBEdit from beeping if you right-clicked in an improperly formed HTML or XML document. Note that BBEdit 10.5.2 now requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. ($49.99 new from Bare Bones or the Mac App Store, free update, $39.99 upgrade from pre-10 versions, 12.6 MB, release notes)
