Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.9 and TextWrangler 4.5.7, with both updates devoted solely to squashing a variety of bugs. The two text editors tackle many of the same issues, including patching memory leaks related to progress dialogs and the font system, improving performance when generating syntax-coloring information for extremely large files, fixing a bug that blanked out one pane of a split-pane text view, and putting a stop to attempts to mount volumes that aren’t available while reopening files during state restoration at startup. The BBEdit update also fixes performance issues when filtering directories for the Subversion “Show Working Copy Status” command, and improves the printing innards for live preview windows so that the printed output is closer to expectations. ($49.99 for BBEdit, free update, 12.5 MB, release notes; free for TextWrangler, 9.4 MB, release notes)
