Bare Bones Software has released version 8.7 of BBEdit, my preferred text editor on the Mac, and what I'm using to type these very words. This release adds code folding and Ruby, YAML, and SQL syntax coloring and function navigation. It also addresses at least one of my major complaints about earlier versions (confusing, hard-to-navigate preferences) and may offer a workaround for recently buggy multifile search as well. I'll need to play with this release a little to be sure. BBEdit is $199 payware. Upgrades from 8.5 and 8.6 are free. Upgrades from 8.0-8.2 cost $30 and upgrades from 7.x cost $40. Mac OS X 10.4 or later is required.
