BBEdit 9.2 released
Bare Bones has posted the v9.2 update to BBEdit, its text-editing suite. Special emphasis in the software is placed on coding, through project support features and the recognition of common syntax structures. New to v9.2 is a Sleep option, which remembers the exact state of the application from when it was last used. After a patch or a system reboot, users should thus be able to resume work exactly where they left off.
Also introduced is support for editing LassoScript, with matching text folding, syntax coloring and function navigation. The Projects component has meanwhile been given extra commands and shortcuts, as well as a new file format, said to mesh better with code collaboration clients including Perforce and Subversion.
Miscellaneous changes improve Scratchpad, spread syntax coloring to all languages, and alter the treatment of recently-used items. TAR files can now be examined within disk browsers, and the software as a whole should better handle Java and Python code. The v9.2 update is free to current BBEdit 9.x owners; a new copy typically costs $125.
