BBEdit 7.0.1 Available -- Hot on the heels of the release of BBEdit 7.0, Bare Bones Software has released a free update to BBEdit 7.0.1. Among other minor fixes, the patch addresses conflicts with system-wide keystrokes under Mac OS X, improves BBEdit's new CVS support, tweaks processing of HTML and XHTML files, and offers a handful of FTP enhancements. You can read complete release notes on the Bare Bones Web site. Although most of the enhancements (and the focus) of BBEdit is for use under Mac OS X, BBEdit 7 does run under Mac OS 9.2.2, so classic Mac users aren't left out of all its text-munging goodness. The BBEdit 7.0.1 update is a 9.3 MB download. [GD]
