TextWrangler update fixes bugs

Bare Bones Software on Tuesday released TextWrangler 2.1.3, an update to their free text editor for Mac OS X. The new version is available for download immediately.

TextWrangler is a free text editor for the Mac that includes multi-file search and replace capability with regular expression (grep) pattern matching, function navigation and syntax coloring. It supports SFTP and FTP file transfers, AppleScript and Unix scripting.

A maintenance update, this version fixes reported issues and makes some minor refinements. A complete list of what’s changed is available online.

TextWrangler is also an inexpensive way to upgrade to Bare Bones’ more feature-rich text and HTML editor BBEdit — upgrading from TextWrangler costs $99, compared to $199.

System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.5 or later.
