BBEdit 12.0.1

Bare Bones Software has issued BBEdit 12.0.1, the first maintenance update to the company’s recently released version 12 (see “Modernized BBEdit 12 Manipulates Columnar Data and More,” 14 October 2017). The long-standing text editor addresses the “probable cause” of a crash that occurred in macOS 10.13 High Sierra, improves stability when determining whether a given file location is within a Git or Subversion working copy, fixes a bug where items within Zip archives were not filtered correctly during multi-file search/text factory processing, and guards against spurious “preference changed” notifications in High Sierra. See the release notes for a complete list of bug fixes.

You can upgrade from BBEdit 11 for $29.99 or from an earlier version for $39.99 (upgrades for purchases made after 1 March 2017 are free). Upgrade prices apply to copies purchased from the Mac App Store as well. ($49.99, $29.99 or $39.99 upgrade, free update from version 12, 13.5 MB, release notes, 10.11.6+)
