Good morning folks,
We're currently working on another maintenance update to BBEdit
12.0 to address a few recently reported issues.
Note that this is a _pre-release_ version. The intent is to fix
bugs and address areas of improvement based on what our
customers have reported. However, since the software is at this
point not fully tested, there _may_ be bugs and regressions.
If this prospect makes you nervous, then sticking with the
public release versions is your best course of action. Nobody
will be offended if you choose to do so; you're under no
obligation to install and use anything but a public release. :-)
Complete change notes to date for all the pre-release builds in
this cycle are available here:
The change notes are organized into additions, changes, and
fixes, and are annotated where appropriate with case numbers. So
if you recognize a number corresponding to a support case that
was opened for you, you can now verify that it's been fixed
correctly. Please take the time to review the changes before
using the new build -- it'll be worth your time.
One final note: If you run into a bug in a pre-release version,
PLEASE DO NOT REPORT THE BUG TO THE LIST. This includes asking
about whether others have seen the same problem. Instead, please
send a bug report to <supp...@barebones.com> and we will deal
with it there. This will help us keep the list discussion on
topic and productive for all list members.
Here is the list of changes made since the 12.1 public release:
version 12.1.1 (410031) (2018-02-12)
o (none in this build)
o (none in this build)
*  Fixed bug in which dragging the "Currently Open
Documents" section header to resize it in a project window would
change the selection in the Currently Open Documents section.
*  Fixed bug in which the highlight line for dropping
items in the middle of a reorderable list (such as the Currently
Open Documents list in the sidebar) didn't draw when it should
*  Worked around a bug which appeared when running on
macOS 10.11.6 in which closing the Find or Multi-File Search
window might cause the Colors palette to appear.
* Fixed bug in which files larger than 4294967295 bytes were not
read in correctly when opening, which would lead to unexpected
data loss if you didn't notice, made changes, and saved.
*  Fixed some cases in which system text substitutions
were not offered by the completion panel when the substitution
trigger began with a word-break character. (This change doesn't
fix all possible cases in which system substitutions aren't
*  Fixed bug in which the foreground text color was not
correctly applied when copying or dragging styled text out
document whose language was "(none)" or one which otherwise did
not support any syntax coloring. (The underlying issue may also
affect completion in such documents based on words from the
*  Fixed bug in which setting Soft Wrap to Window Width
would change the character count used for Soft Wrap to "N"
* Made a change to reduce file system activity while maintaining
the "Open Recent" document history. This will not likely be
noticeable in most cases, but may improve performance on very
slow remote file systems.
*  Fixed exception which would occur when trying to use
the "smart zoom" (two-finger double tap) gesture in an
*  Fixed bug in which the `Esc` key didn't work to dismiss
the Live Search bar when keyboard focus was in the search
Emacs meta sequences were enabled.
* [352168, 352360] Fixed a bug in which `<<-` heredoc strings in
Unix Shell Script files weren't correctly terminated by an
indented occurrence of the delimiter string.
* In the About panel, the license code (for individual users) is
now hidden initially, and requires a click to make it visible.
That way, when you get excited about seeing your name in the
credits and post a screen shot on social media, you won't
accidentally share your license code with people who don't need
to see it.
* [352084, 352374] Changed the math for calculating
character-based Soft Wrap to Window Width to address incorrect
wrap calculations when using unsmoothed fonts (such as
with smoothing disabled).
*  If the "`current search strings`" scripting property
hasn't been set yet (because no scripted or recorded operation
has occurred), the property will now return a `missing value`
placeholder for each appropriate member of the record.
*  Fixed a bug which prevented completion based on words
in the file from working in "Text File" and "Software Package
*  Fixed bug in which some of the CSS tools would crash
when invoked on a document that was not reasonably formed
was not CSS at all).
* Made some fixes to correct malfunctioning error reporting during
SSH key mismatches and other unexpected situations which would
occur when connecting via SFTP.
* Fixed bug in which host key verification errors returned by SSH
were not being reported when attempting to connect to an SFTP
server. The correct error is now reported. Note that SSH on macOS
10.13.3 and later may report key mismatches where previous
versions of the OS did not. This is due to security policy
changes in the OS.
* [352509, 352559] Fixed bug in which AppleScripts that had been
previously saved as applications would report an (incorrect)
error instead of running.
