Bare Bones Software has released a new version of its text editor, BBEdit, for Mac OS X. The new version is available as an update for 6.0 users, downloadable from Bare Bones Software’s Web site.
Bare Bones notes that BBEdit 6.1 for Mac OS X takes advantage of new technologies in the new OS, including integration with native Perl tools. Other new features include enhanced FTP support (enabling users to specify alternate ports, to help support various security methods), optional display of “hard” line numbers in soft-wrapped documents, and support for Emacs-style key equivalents for basic editing commands.
If you’re using BBEdit 6.0 or later, you can
download the 6.1 update for free, now. If you’re using a previous version of BBEdit, you must purchase an upgrade to 6.1 for US$39 plus shipping and handling. Bare Bones also offers cross-upgrades for users of competing products. More details are available on Bare Bones Software’s Web site.
