Bare Bones Software has announced the release and immediate availability of BBEdit 14.6, a feature update to the latest major version of its professional strength text and code editor.

It introduces quick Dock access to its Notes feature and additional controls for text display, usability enhancements to its built-in file transfer client, and completely reworked text rendering in its legendary editing engine.

“Add Bookmark” and “Manage Bookmarks” commands are now available in the new FTP/SFTP connection panel, and usable prior to connecting. The Dock menu provides direct access to the Notes window via a new “Show Notes” command. BBEdit’s extensive Editing preferences empower the the user to specify alternative characters for rendering tabs and line breaks when “Show Invisibles” is in use.

In addition, a complete reworking of the text rendering in BBEdit’s

editing engine brings renewed support for font ligatures when supported by the font in use, plus improved Unicode compatibility and performance improvements.

BBEdit 14.6 requires macOS 10.15.4 or later (compared with macOS

10.14.2 for earlier BBEdit 14 releases). It also includes enhancements and refinements to existing features, and fixes for specific reported issues, and is a recommended and free update to all registered customers with BBEdit 14.

BBEdit offers an evaluation model in which its full feature set is available for the first 30 days of use. At the end of the 30-day evaluation period, BBEdit will continue to run with a permanent feature set which includes its powerful editing capabilities, but not its web authoring tools or other exclusive features. BBEdit’s exclusive features may be re-enabled at any time with a purchased license.
