Bare Bones Software has released TextWrangler 5.0, an upgrade to its general purpose text editor for Mac OS X. It’s built on a new, modernized foundation and compatible with OS X El Capitan.
TextWrangler 5.0 also introduces newly overhauled systems for Find Differences and syntax coloring. In addition, the upgrade introduces new built-in support for EditorConfig and adds dozens of other enhancements and new features.
“With this new release, TextWrangler gains the latest advancements and extensive modernization that we did for BBEdit 11,” says Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. “This new foundation supports Mac OS X back to Mountain Lion while being compatible with the newly released El Capitan, sets the stage for ongoing development, and enhances TextWrangler’s usability and power in ways that our customers can appreciate right now.”
TextWrangler 5.0 requires Mac OS X 10.8.5 or later. You can download TextWrangler 5.0 free of charge from the Bare Bones Software web site (http://tinyurl.com/ctwmby). Bare Bones Software also intends to make TextWrangler 5.0 available via the Mac App Store.
