BBEdit 12.6.1 – Powerful text and HTML editor. (Shareware)October 22, 2019
Specifically crafted in response to the needs of Web authors and software developers, this award winning product provides an array of features for editing, searching, and manipulation of text.
An intelligent interface offers easy access to BBEdit’s best of class features including grep pattern matching, search and replace across multiple files, function navigation and syntax coloring for numerous source code languages, FTP and SFTP open and save, AppleScript, Perl, and also OS X Unix scripting support, glossary support, and a comprehensive set of HTML tools.
- When running on macOS 10.14.1 and after, if /usr/local/bin/ or /usr/local/share/man/man1/ don’t exist, then BBEdit will try to create them before requesting the system to finish installation of the control line tools. If this fails you will find a useful message, as opposed to a quiet failure to set up the resources.
- Fixed a performance bug where BBEdit would ask a language module to perform a keyword lookup, even as soon as the module did not explicitly report it supported lookups.
This never stopped well.
- Though you should always specify which text to include when using the make new line AppleScript construction, BBEdit will no longer crash if you are unable to achieve that. In the lack of any text, even a single blank line is supposed.
- Fixed a bug where the program’s evaluation for determining the usability of an automatically located Unix tool didn’t return the right answer. This would break things like in-application Python script execution.
- Worked around macOS sandboxing bug where particular ssh surgeries which necessitated socket access to ssh-agent could fail. A common instance of this was SSH multiplexing, however, certain forms of crucial access would fail to. This in turn broke the built-in SFTP service, typically resulting in 22807 mistakes when trying to connect to SFTP servers.
- Left a bug in which changes to the print settings in the Print panel did not take effect, nor did they last.
- Produced internal changes in the SFTP client execution to work around stability issues brought on by an OS bug when running on macOS 10.12.6.
- Fixed bug in which cancelling an SFTP connection attempt would be”tacky”, and induce future connection attempts to fail before the FTP/SFTP browser window in which the link was created was shut.
- Fixed a bug in which running a text factory in the greek menu with no previously specified resources would prompt for sources and options, and then do nothing.
- Fixed bug where the”Options” sheet for a”Run Unix Filter” text mill operation could refuse to appear when a Unix script had formerly been chosen, but was missing.
- Fixed a bug where the application-modal progress panel (used for a few things, like distant file transfers and folder compares) did not properly upgrade itself as requested by the activity being performed (for instance, the title of an folder/file being contrasted, or the number of information transferred).
- Worked around macOS sandboxing bug (48537807) which induced AppleScript tape to become nonfunctional.
- Fixed bug in which a PHP function declaration with a nullable return kind would cause that purpose to be omitted from the menu.
- Additional some keywords to PHP for built in types.
- Fixed a bug in which documents that began with a Number! Were inappropriately suspected as HTML, if they included something recognizable as HTML (like HTML code at a heredoc or string).
- Worked about an OS behavior in which the dictation system could cause insertion of a naked carriage return (ASCII 13) when buying”new line”. This would seem as a gremlin.
- Additional a third party application to the AppleEvent entitlements to ensure ODB support functions with it (com.agile.teambase).
- When a Unix text filter yields a nonzero exit code, BBEdit can do nothing and report an error, instead of replacing the choice (or document contents) without a thing.
- Fixed bug where bbdiff /dev/null / / path/to/some/file did not trigger the program.
- Fixed a performance regression when running AppleScripts from the Scripts menu along with alternative resources, especially whenever the script done a huge quantity of operations which included sending occasions to BBEdit.
- Made a change to the way new files are created on disk while doing a Save As, to see if that fixes a reported symptom with new-document conserves requiring authentication.
- Made a switch to work around an OS bug (46341124) in which the OS would refuse to resolve certain file references created by old versions of the program, and return an inscrutable error.
- The built-in application updater once more correctly checks for if you’re able to set up the updated application, and thus can suitably opt to download the upgrade disk image, instead of attempting (and failing) to self-update.
- MacOS 10.12.6 or later
