Bare Bones Software has released TextWrangler 3.0
an update to the text editor. The new version introduces direct
editing within disk browsers and search results windows, as well as
non-modal Find and Multi-File Search windows.
TextWrangler 3.0 also offers improved FTP performance, an overhauled
support, and other improvements to the built-in programming language
support. TextWrangler’s search and replace power is now channeled
through modeless Find and Multi-File Search windows, which sport new
options and still offer keyboard controls for streamlined operation.
The Find Differences command now generates more usable results for
file comparisons, and now supports reviewing and applying discrete
differences that occur within lines.
This new version introduces a revamped interface for working with
files via FTP and SFTP, significant improvements to FTP file transfer
performance, and workflow refinements for and multi-file searching.
The Objective-C and Objective-C++ modules have been updated with
additional language keywords; the Java and Python modules have also
been significantly enhanced.
TextWrangler 3.0 can now directly browse the contents of Unix “tar”
files, and transparently read and write bz2 compressed files. A new
Document Statistics display presents the number of characters, words,
and lines in each text view’s status bar.
TextWrangler 3.0 also includes fixes to reported issues. It requires
Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow
Leopard”). All Mac OS X users may download TextWrangler 3.0 free of
charge from the Bare Bones Software web site.
