BBEdit 11.0.1

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 11.0.1, a wide-ranging maintenance update with a bevy of refinements and fixes for user-reported issues that follows the recent release of version 11.0 (see “BBEdit 11 Overhauls Features for Existing Customers,” 26 October 2014). Among the nearly 50 listed changes, the venerable text editor reduces the amount of time required to restore sleep state at startup, fixes a crash related to applying a color scheme converted from a legacy format, squashes a bug that prevented correct restoration of HTML markup palette positions on startup, adds an expert preference to disable text smoothing for a specific font, reduces the transient memory requirements of the SGML/HTML parser (which should help with larger documents), and adds ellipses to the Preferences and Setup menu commands “because some people just want to watch the world burn” (Michael Cohen’s personal favorite change). BBEdit 11 is priced at $49.99 for new licenses, while BBEdit 10 users can upgrade for $29.99 and those with licenses for BBEdit 9 or earlier can upgrade for $39.99. Those who bought BBEdit 10 on or after 1 May 2014 are eligible for a free upgrade. ($49.99, free update for version 11 licenses, 11.2 MB, release notes, 10.8.5+)
