Bare Bones Software has released version 9.0 of BBEdit, my preferred text editor on the Mac, and what I'm using to type these very words. Some of the many new features in this release include:

Barebones fixed at least one of the annoying bugs I reported in the HTML tools with 8.7. However the paragraph tool still pops up an annoying modal dialog, and the acronym and abbreviation tools don't. This really needs to be corrected.

Upgrades cost $30. New copies cost $125. If you bought 8.7 this year, upgrades are free. Mac OS X 10.4 or later is required.
