BBEdit 9.5 adds Live Search feature, Zip file browsing, more

updated 02:40 pm EDT, Tue April 27, 2010

New version supports attaching scripts to events

Bare Bones has released an update to its HTML and text editor, BBEdit 9.5. BBEdit is geared toward both web authors and software developers for manipulating, editing and searching HTML and text. It has professional tools like grep pattern matching, search and replace across multiple files -- including unopened files on remote servers, syntax coloring, Apple and Unix script support and code completion. It also syncs preferences and Application Support folders across multiple Macs via MobileMe.

Version 9.5 also revamps the Quick Search tool with a new Live Search feature. The tool searches for text as users enter text in the search window - matches are highlighted throughout the document, and previous and next arrows in the search field allow users to navigate between matches.

Script support gets new capability in v9.5 -- scripts can now be attached to application and document events, including Open and Save. Also new are capabilities like direct browsing of Zip files, enhanced text completion and a Reveal in Project List command. The new command offers quick identification of the active document and contextual Subversion commands within project file lists. BBEdit also gets new interface refinements and some bugfixes.

Version 9.5 of BBEdit requires Mac OS X 10.5, with 10.5.8 or 10.6.3 recommended. Individual pricing is $125, with site licenses available via a company quote.
