Bare Bones Software has released a major update to BBEdit, its incredibly powerful and popular text editor. BBEdit 13 adds over 100 new features, including new grep (regular expansions) capabilities, an expanded Dark Mode support, and much more.
BBEdit from Bare Bones Software has officially returned to the Mac App Store. Apple first teased out that the HTML and text editor software would join the new Mac App Store last summer as part of macOS Mojave’s reveal.
Bare Bones Software has released a big update to BBEdit, the HTML and text editor for the Mac. Starting with today’s version 12.6 release, BBEdit is now a sandboxed app. The security update makes BBEdit one step closer to returning to the Mac App Store.
Bare Bones Software has just released an important new update to its BBEdit HTML and text editor. Version 12.1 makes BBEdit a 64-bit application for the first time, which has performance advantages now and future-proofs BBEdit for upcoming macOS updates.
Earlier this year Bare Bones Software sunset its TextWrangler app and said it will focus fully on BBEdit for future versions of macOS. Today Bare Bones is shipping the next major update to BBEdit, version 12.0, which is made for macOS High Sierra.
Bare Bones Software announced this week it will no longer develop new versions of its free code editor app TextWrangler. While the software will continue to work barring any future show stopping bugs, Bare Bones says it won’t release updates to TextWrangler for the next version of macOS.
Text/HTML editor BBEdit got upgraded to version 11 this week with a huge number of new features, improvements, and fixes. The highlights include improved syntax highlighting, an updated interface for the “Find Differences” feature, and a new text extraction capability. The Clipping system has been updated to allow for the creation of snippets that can be used in any language, or just in one.
You can get BBEdit 11 for $49.99 if you don’t own a previous verison, or $29.99 if you own version 10. Upgrading from version 9 or lower is also possible, but will cost $39.99. Customers who bought BBEdit 10 on or after May 1, 2014 will get version 11 for free. The app is available from the Bare Bones Software website. Like Realmac’s RapidWeaver 6, BBEdit 11 is not available on the Mac App Store.
The full (and lengthy) change log is below and goes into very fine detail about every change in the new version.
We’re big fans of BBEdit over here (and its free counterpart TextWrangler) so today’s update is exciting news. I built 9to5mac a few years ago using BBEdit (on Drupal!) and the software has just gotten better and better (though 9to5mac has since been ported to WordPress.com).
How much is updated today? Just have a look at the release notes if you’ve got some time to kill.
It isn’t upgraded in the App Store just yet but Bare Bones says that any BBEdit purchase since the App Store opened will get a free upgrade. Get it here until October 20, 2011 for $40. Full info below:
