TextWrangler 3.5.1

Bare Bones Software has updated its free general-purpose text editor TextWrangler to version 3.5.1. The 3.5.1 release was a quick bug-fix update to the recently released version 3.5, which contains many, many changes brought over via the shared code with BBEdit 9.6—all of which are detailed in Bare Bones’s typically detailed release notes. Highlights include a new Live Search bar for finding text faster, text folding, swipe-based navigation, enhanced script attachability, and safer saving of files to remote mounted file systems. Note that support for BBXT plug-ins has been removed. The new
version of TextWrangler can also open files significantly larger than previous versions could. Confusingly, although TextWrangler 3.5.1 is available from the Bare Bones Web site, the Mac App Store version reports itself to be 3.5.2 with the same changes. (Free, 13 MB)
