The last major point update to the text and code editor came in 2014 with BBEdit 11.0 which included three years of updates. The new version includes loads of bug fixes for issues users reported, Bare Bones says, plus there are new feature additions as well.

BBEdit 12 also introduces completely rewritten user experiences for
its FTP/SFTP, Text Factory, and Preview in BBEdit features. In
addition, BBEdit now presents a unified appearance when using a dark
editor color scheme, and a wide range of improvements to appearance
and behavior resulting from its increased OS integration.

New menu commands include a “Canonize” command on the Text menu for
performing batch text transformations, “Paste Using Filter” on the
Edit menu for transforming text obtained from other applications, and
a new “Columns” submenu of commands on the Edit menu for working
efficiently with text in column-delimited formats.

BBEdit 12 follows version 11.6.8 and works with macOS El Capitan or later. BBEdit 12 is available from Bare Bones for $49.99 with various upgrade options available for previous customers. New customers can try the full app for 30 days using the evaluation period before paying.
