BBEdit 7 is out!

in Mac Software edited January 2014
Now, just saw it on Versiontracker, haven't checked for improvements or something, so I don't know what it's all about.

Does somebody have it?

Tell us about it.

goodie, goodie...

    The <a href=""; target="_blank">list of improvements</a> is significant, as usual.

    Notable new features include a bunch of OS X refinements, support for managing multiple websites, syntax coloration/support for ASP and VB code.

    It's going to be mine all mine very shortly.

    Is this a free update to download if I have BBEdit 6.5?

    Nope. $49, which isn't too bad, I guess. The full price is now $179, though!

    Of course, you can still download BBEdit Lite for free and then crossgrade for $120 or so. Since I don't use many of BBEdit's featuers, it's a bit steep for a text editor. I'm still using BBEdit 6.0.

    Someone on Versiontracker was actually complaining about BBEdit's upgrade pricing.

    He claims he is a programmer, and that $49 is just way too much for an upgrade. He also claims they update the program way too often and charge for it.

    They release maybe an update a year for $50, which ends up being probably half of one of his billable hours. I'll gladly pay the $50 to upgrade to 7.0, because it pays for itself on hundred times over.

    The multiple web sites thing I've been waiting for, for quite a long time. Should have been added sooner, seems like a no-brainer.

    Sounds like the programmer guy complaining is just jealous that he doesn't have a program that people will pay to upgrade. <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    People cough at that price for a "text editor" because most text editors can't come near what BBEdit does - and does well, and without crashing.

    I've never even blinked at paying the upgrade fees. $49 a year or so for an application that's grown at the rate that BBEdit has is a steal.
