BBEdit 10.5.11 and TextWrangler 4.5.9

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.11 [1] and TextWrangler 4.5.9 [2], 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 [3]; free for TextWrangler, 9.5 MB, release notes [4])
