Bare Bones software has issued an update to its free text editor, TextWrangler. The 2.1.1 update is mainly about bugfixes, although there are a couple of new minor features, one of which is a “Register” menu item. Before you scoff about that being not much of a ‘feature’, consider that registered TextWrangler users are in a position to buy BBEdit at a significant discount, so it’s something that could well appeal to a fair number of people.
The list of squashed bugs covers a lot of problems, so if you’ve suffered from any of these, this update should be good news for you.
This follows last week’s BBEdit update to 8.2.4, which was a broadly similar bug-fixing update.
I’ve said it before, and it bears repeating now: TextWrangler remains one of the best bits of freeware currently available for OS X. Few other free applications offer such a wide array of features and such reliable performance.
