Bare Bones Software has released a new update to its popular freeware text editor for the Macintosh, BBEdit Lite. The new version, 6.1.1, can be downloaded from links on Bare Bones Software’s Web site.
Based on the same core engine as Bare Bones Software’s popular commercial text editor BBEdit, BBEdit Lite is a well-rounded tool suitable for creating source code, HTML or virtually any other text-based content. The most recent significant update to the software, BBEdit Lite 6.1, features more powerful tools and added abilities.
Changes to BBEdit Lite 6.1.1 include:
changes to the “Default Font” setting in the Editor Defaults preferences would not take effect.
when performing a multi-file search, BBEdit Lite would not honor search option settings that differed from the defaults (literal search, Case Sensitive turned off, Match Entire Words turned off).
dynamic scrolling for the horizontal scrollbar now works when running on Mac OS 8.1 and earlier.
the “Hard Wrap” command would hang when wrapping Relative to First Line and the first line was indented with spaces and contained no spaces after the indentation.
worked around Mac OS X clipboard performance bugs by deferring clipboard import until the last possible moment.
Registered users of BBEdit Lite 6.1.1 can cross-upgrade to the full commercial version for a discount.
