Long-standing text editor nears perfection

BBEdit has been around seemingly forever -- it first appeared in 1991, when System 6 was the OS of the day. Since then, it has evolved into a powerful text editor that can be used for simple writing, creating web pages in HTML, editing Wiki entries or hand-coding in a wide variety of languages -- from 68K Assembler to XML -- all with syntax coloring, line numbering and other important programming features. We take a look at the latest version, which brings many changes and features to the venerable program, and rate how close it has gotten to full maturity in our exclusive review.
