Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

BBEdit 10.5.11 and TextWrangler 4.5.9

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.11 and TextWrangler 4.5.9, with both updates fixing a crash that would occasionally occur when trying to balance delimiters, as well as another occasional crash at startup. The two text editors also work around some “elusive” behavior that caused incorrect change notifications to be sent for watched folders, which would in turn cause inappropriate refreshes of Scripts, Text Filters, Stationery, and/or Clippings menus. BBEdit 10.5.11 fixes a bug in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion that broke the running-browser detection, ensures Dropbox is discovered for accessing content (after a change to the on-disk format of ~/.dropbox/), and fixes a couple of other instances of crashes. ($49.99 for BBEdit, free update, 13 MB, release notes; free for TextWrangler, 9.5 MB, release notes)
