BBEdit 6.1 Available for Mac OS X
Award Winning HTML and Text Editor Taps Mac OS X Technologies

Bedford, MA -- April 20, 2001 -- Bare Bones Software today announced the
immediate availability of version 6.1 of BBEdit(tm), the company's
award-winning HTML and text editor. This update marks the first version of
BBEdit that runs natively on Mac OS X, Apple's next generation operating

"We have a long and distinguished history of leadership in producing
Mac-only software which makes the most of the Mac OS," said Rich Siegel,
the founder, president and CEO of Bare Bones Software. "With the release of
BBEdit for Mac OS X, we are proud to be among the first to deliver software
which runs natively on Mac OS X, and which brings the power of this
exciting new OS release to our customers."

"Mac OS X, which combines the power of Unix with the simplicity of the Mac,
is the ultimate platform for developing exciting new web applications,"
said Philip Schiller, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Product
Marketing. "We are excited to see Bare Bones Software bringing the award
winning BBEdit to Mac OS X and joining the growing list of new Mac OS X
applications appearing daily."

BBEdit 6.1 takes advantage of several Mac OS X technologies, including
robust integration with the native Perl tools. In addition, BBEdit 6.1
offers many new features and refinements, including enhanced FTP support,
optional display of "hard" line numbers in soft-wrapped documents, and
support for Emacs-style key equivalents for basic editing commands.
BBEdit's improved FTP engine now supports specifying alternate ports,
allowing the use of third-party port reflectors and SSH tunnels for FTP.
New FTP Browser windows present a view of remote directories, making it
easier than ever before to use BBEdit to edit files on FTP servers.

Third-party support for BBEdit's language module plug-ins continues to
grow, with recent announcements of plug-ins for Python, SQL, and LDML. More
information about third-party language modules will be provided on the Bare
Bones Software web site as it becomes available:
