Late Thursday, Bare Bones Software released version 9.3 of BBEdit, its popular text and HTML editor. The software retails for US$125 for new users. The new version, a 16.1 megabyte download, features the following fixes and improvements:
- Introduces significant enhancements to the Projects feature that debuted in BBEdit 9.0, including support for adding Finder saved searches to projects, and additional flexibility in handling non-text files, including command-driven support for examining files via QuickLook when running on Mac OS X 10.6.
- The BBEdit 9.3 update now lets customers create language-specific ctags data files to serve as completion sources.
- FTP/SFTP browsers now feature a “New” button allowing for the creation of new files and folders directly within the browser window.
- The clippings system has been enhanced to allow combining clipping sets for easier access when working in mixed-language files.
- Attached menu scripts are now easier to manage from within BBEdit’s own preferences.
- BBEdit 9.3 introduces a new command-line tool, “bbfind”, which provides access to BBEdit’s multi-file searching from the Unix command line.
BBEdit 9.3 retails for US$125 and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to install and run.
