BBEdit 14

When I switched to a Mac decades ago, BBEdit was my OG text editor.

In the years since I’ve been lured away by the siren call of TextMate and then of Sublime Text.

But now BBEdit 14 is out and its release notes start:

We encourage you to read the complete change notes for BBEdit 14.0. (We spent a lot of time writing those notes, so it would be great for someone to read them. Be that someone.)

I was that someone. And I walk away impressed enough to give BBEdit another look.

BBEdit’s maker, Barebones Software, is, by the way, just off Route 3 in North Chelsmford, MA. I drive right by every time I fly into Boston and drive up to [Yankee]. Someday maybe I’ll drop in.
