Free BBEdit 7.0.2 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Free BBEdit 7.0.2 Update -- Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 7.0.2, a free update for all registered owners of BBEdit 7. A major change in this release is substantially improved translation and detection of text file encodings: BBEdit now supports default encodings when opening and saving files, detects encodings in well-formed XML and HTML documents, and offers appropriate encoding support in Save As dialogs and in the status area of every document. In addition, BBEdit 7.0.2 supports Mac OS 9.1 (although Mac OS 9.2.2 is still preferred), rolls spelling dictionaries into the main application package under Mac OS X, and offers a reworked Philip bar that moves in sync with the horizontal scroll bar (since no one has a 9-inch black-and-white screen anymore). Lastly, BBEdit's AppleScript dictionary is again available to Apple's Script Editor under Mac OS 9! As usual, Bare Bones has published a complete list of fixes and changes. The BBEdit 7.0.2 update is a 12.5 MB download. [GD]
