If you code, especially HTML and websites, you should know about BBEdit and there’s a new version with tasty new features, like the Go Menu, as well as support for Apple’s growing line of Retina Display Macs. Step inside for the details.

Rich Siegel at Bare Bones Software, a lion of the Mac platform since the days of System 6, has released a major update of his ever popular multifunction text editing and code wrangling app. BBEdit 10.5 (release notes) is now available as a free update for registered users.

“BBEdit looks really sharp on a Retina display,” said Rich Siegel, founder, CEO. “While any customer with a Retina Mac will appreciate this, we also took the opportunity to add a number of new features, so that we could release a robust update that offered something useful for everyone.”

Adding that, “If there isn’t something in 10.5 that excites you, check your pulse.”

Topping the list of new features is the Go Menu, which expedites navigation within documents, providing quick access to a Functions palette, a Jump Points palette and to any named symbols in a file.

See the release notes for the full listing of new features, which is extensive and highly detailed…
