BBEdit 10.5.10 and TextWrangler 4.5.8

by Josh Centers

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.10 [1] and TextWrangler 4.5.8 [2], with both updates devoted solely to fixing a number of user-reported issues. The new versions address bugs like a Spotlight-related hang, a crash that would occur when using the New button in an FTP browser window while the item list was empty, and window-related problems when an external display was removed from a laptop. Both apps no longer claim to be able to edit “Java Web Start” files, which should prevent Mac OS X from opening them inappropriately after downloading, and both change Markdown handling so Quick Look should be able to preview Markdown files. BBEdit 10.5.10 also works around a display bug that would cause gray squares to appear in preview windows while resizing them. ($49.99 for BBEdit, free update, 13 MB, release notes [3]; free for TextWrangler, 9.4 MB, release notes [4])
