NORTH CHELMSFORD, Mass. – September 20, 2016 – Bare Bones Software today announced the release and immediate availability of BBEdit® 11.6.2, a significant update to its professional strength text and code editor.

BBEdit 11.6.2 adds compatibility with macOS Sierra along with more than two dozen other changes, refinements and fixes for specific reported issues.

The BBEdit update maintains the recently introduced evaluation model in which the full, complete feature set is available for the first 30 days of use. At the end of the 30-day evaluation period, the permanently functional feature set changes to include BBEdit’s 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.

“The reception to the new evaluation model has been tremendous,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. “Our goal was to make BBEdit even easier to try out; and we encourage everyone to take it for a spin.”

BBEdit 11.6.2 requires Mac OS X 10.9.5 or later, and is a recommended update which is free of charge to all BBEdit 11 customers. Detailed information on all of the changes in BBEdit 11.6.2 can be found at:
