BBEdit 10.5.3

Send Article to a Friend

Offering a veritable festival of fixes, Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.3 with over 50 bugs squashed (many of them also found in version 4.5.1 of the free general-purpose text editor TextWrangler). Most amusing is this release note:

The display glyph for invisible spaces (when “Show Invisible” and “Show Spaces” are both turned on) is now U+00B7 (MIDDLE DOT). If spaces don’t display when those settings are turned on, then your display font is missing that glyph, and you should report it to your font’s developer as a bug. (I would have used U+1427 (CANADIAN SYLLABICS FINAL MIDDLE DOT) for the humour value alone, but not enough fonts supported that glyph. Sorry.)

Amongst the other fixes exclusive to BBEdit 10.5.3, this update once again looks for URLs in plain text dragged into project lists to aid in the addition of remote file references from FTP apps, ensures that the Close All in Project command now works for instaprojects, fixes a crash that occurred when attempting to Convert to XML (under Markup > Tidy), ensures that relative path references in HTML and CSS documents are correctly resolved, and fixes a performance bug where the Functions floater would impose a “heavy penalty” in conjunction with a source file that contained a large number of function entries. ($49.99 new from Bare Bones or the Mac App Store, free update, 12.5 MB, release notes)
