BBEdit 10 requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later (10.7.5, 10.8.5, 10.9.2 or later recommended).
PowerPC-based Macs are not supported.
Fixed hang which would occur if Spotlight was blocked on indexing when bringing up a source picker (as in multi-file search or text factory execution).
The application no longer claims to be able to edit "Java Web Start" files, which should prevent the OS from inappropriately opening them after downloading.
Fixed bug in which the first right-arrow gesture in a text document would have no effect when the document had been opened with soft wrapping turned on and the insertion point was at the very beginning of the document.
Fixed a cluster of bugs which conspired to prevent image windows from opening up with correct size and placement; the image's dimensions are now listed in the Window menu as well.
Fixed bug in which keyboard equivalents including the Shift key couldn't be set properly in the "Menus & Shortcuts" preferences.
Fixed crash which would occur when using the "New..." button in an FTP browser window while the item list was empty.
Fixed bug in which horizontal scrollbar calibration would get out of whack after deleting (or shortening) the longest line in the file, and then inserting text elsewhere to create a line that was longer than the previous record holder.
Fixed bug in which the line number bar would show incorrect line numbers following the beginning of a folded range of text.
Made a change to work around an OS bug which would cause gray areas to appear in preview windows while resizing them. (The glitches still appear, but will clear themselves rather than requiring you to reload the preview.)
After a conversation with Gruber, changed the UTI conformance
public.plain-text. This will fix QuickLook's failure to display
Markdown files (it would show a document icon instead).
Changed the name of the "Data File" pseudo-language to "Text
File", and added "
.txt" and "
.text" as default mappings to
that language (in addition to the existing "
Fixed bug in which files which should have triggered a privilege escalation when opened did not, and instead reported a 10004 error.
Fixed a bug in which changes to display configuration would cause windows to be incorrectly reshaped in some situations. (Typically when an external display was removed from a laptop, and the window was located on the external display and was larger in either dimension than could be displayed on the laptop screen.)
