∞ BBEdit 10 hits the Mac Store

Bare Bones Software on Tuesday released a major update to BBEdit, the company’s HTML and text editor.

BBEdit 10 also introduces switchable syntax color schemes, seamless preservation of open documents on relaunch, and support for using Dropbox to share application configuration and setup data.

“We have a long and distinguished history of delivering dramatic upgrades to BBEdit, and version 10 is no exception,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. “Everything in this new version is designed to improve the working life of the professionals — including web authors, software developers, scientists, system admins, and writers — that rely on BBEdit. We leave it to our customers to decide which of the hundred or so additions, changes, and refinements they like the best.”

As a user of BBEdit since 1994, I’ve always been impressed with the level of commitment that Rich and the rest of the people at Bare Bones have shown for the app and its users.

BBEdit 10 has a suggested retail price of $49.99. Through Oct. 19, 2011, BBEdit 10 is available at an introductory price of $39.99 from Bare Bones Software or the Mac App Store.
