BBEdit 9.6.2

Bare Bones Software has released version 9.6.2 of its powerful text editor BBEdit. As is the norm, the release is accompanied by exquisitely detailed release notes. Highlights include newly introduced syntax coloring and function navigation for JSON and automatic generation of XHTML markup when creating HTML5 documents. Several dozen bug fixes are included, too. Among them are fixes for several CVS and Subversion-related errors, improved performance when running Replace All on very large documents, a correction for the RGB values of CSS’s green, and a fix for services returning UTF-16 data erroneously truncating that data. ($125 new, but on sale for $99 through 6 January 2011; free update; 15.9 MB)
