BBEdit 10.5.5

by Josh Centers

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.5 [1], which has no new features but fixes a number of outstanding issues. As always, the release notes include such entertaining gems as:

Fixed bug which would cause internal exceptions (and subsequent strange behavior, like all menus being disabled) at startup on certain systems. I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.

Flash Player, you have generated your last crash log.

Other highlights among the more than 30 listed changes include BBEdit offering to move itself to the Applications folder on launch if it’s not already installed there, the option to discard existing auto-save state by holding down Command-Control-Shift when launching the app, and improved custom cursors that look better on Retina displays. ($49.99 new from Bare Bones or the Mac App Store [2], free update, 12.6 MB, release notes [3])
