Bare Bones Software today announced the release of BBEdit 7.1, a significant update to is award-winning text and HTML editor. Version 7.1 adds support for SFTP (the SSH File Transfer Protocol), FTP and SFTP server discovery via Rendezvous, and a “Preview in BBEdit” option, which allows customers to view a live rendering of their HTML code under construction in a window that automatically updates as the code is changed. This feature takes advantage of Apple’s WebKit technology, and therefore requires Mac OS X 10.2 with Safari installed (or Mac OS X 10.3). The BBEdit 7.1 update is available free of charge to all registered BBEdit 7.0 customers.
