BBEdit 10.5.8 and TextWrangler 4.5.6

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.8 and TextWrangler 4.5.6 with a healthy list of shared fixes for customer-submitted issues. Of particular joy for TidBITS staff, the two text editors fix several bugs that erroneously changed a document’s line endings to “Classic Mac (CR)” (identified and reported by Adam Engst and Matt Neuburg). The two updates also fix a bug where bzip2-compressed files were not read correctly, a couple of issues associated with FTP logging, and a bug in the Fortran function scanner. BBEdit 10.5.8 also modifies the way unsaved or untitled documents use line breaks to improve compatibility when previewed using an external helper that isn’t a Web browser (such as Marked, the Markdown previewer). ($49.99 for BBEdit, free update, 12.9 MB, release notes; free for TextWrangler, 9.8 MB, release notes)

Someone needs to do a "history of BBEdit" article. IMHO, this single piece of software is s important as any other for mac OS's current role as the web developer's platform of choice.
