BBEdit 10 Released with Introductory Price

BBEdit, the best professional HTML and text editor for Mac OS X, has been updated to version 10. BBEdit is specially designed for web designers and software developers and is an invaluable tool. Version 10 also comes with a special introductory price.

A brief summary of the new changes to BBEdit 10 is available from the Bare Bones Software web site as are the complete change notes. I have personally used BBEdit since version 2 all the way back to Classic Mac OS days and find it to be the very best tool of its type. Bare Bones Software has been consistently able to deliver excellent products.

If you are interested in BBEdit in general, visit the BBEdit page to find out how it all works. Although BBEdit 10 is not yet available in the Mac App Store, you can still purchase version 9.6 and receive the update to version 10 as soon as it is approved. For a few months, BBEdit can be purchased for $39.99 rather than its normal $49.99. This is a bargain especially to those of us that originally purchased BBEdit $119.99.

If you are not quite sure if you want to spend the money, check out TextWrangler, the free text editor from Bare Bones Software. Note that TextWrangler is missing the development features known and loved by users of BBEdit but does give you a taste of what it looks like. TextWrangler used to be called BBEdit Lite but the name was changed some years back. If you are ready to jump in, purchase BBEdit from the Mac App Store. You will not be disapointed.
