BBEdit 11.0.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 11.0.2 [1] with a bevy of fixes for the venerable text editor. As usual, the folks at Bare Bones have had some fun with the release notes, with these two standout items:

On the more serious side, BBEdit 11.0.2 works around a frustrating bug in OS X 10.10 Yosemite that causes Open and Save As panels in some applications to grow by 22 pixels each time a file is saved, pushing the bottom edge of the panels off the screen (a problem also recently addressed in “Default Folder X 4.6.12 [2],” 14 December 2014). This fix only prevents the panels from growing out of control, and the release notes [3] provide a Terminal command for restoring the panels to their default sizes. BBEdit 11.0.2 also fixes a memory leak in some of the built-in language modules, improves typing into the search box in the Clippings floater or the Insert Clipping panel, restores the Change Case > Capitalize Sentences command to working order, and improves performance of the Process Lines Containing, Process Duplicate Lines, Sort Lines, and Zap Gremlins commands. ($49.99, free update for version 11 licenses, 11.2 MB, 10.8.5+)
