Bare Bones Software Releases BBEdit 12.0.1
First Update to the Recently Released Major New Version

NORTH CHELMSFORD, Mass. – October 20, 2017 – Bare Bones Software today announced the release and immediate availability of BBEdit® 12.0.1, the first maintenance update to the recently released major new version of its professional strength HTML and text editor.

BBEdit 12.0.1 is a recommended update which includes refinements and fixes for specific reported issues. BBEdit 12 builds on a new foundation featuring greater overall integration with macOS, specific improvements for compatibility with macOS High Sierra, and more than one hundred new features, changes, and refinements, including fixes for specific reported issues.

“The response to BBEdit 12 has been terrific,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. “Based on the feedback we’ve received, customers love the new features we’ve added, and seem especially enthusiastic about Split View, the new Columns submenu, Paste Using Filter, Canonize, and other productivity enhancing tools. It’s been gratifying to hear what our audience likes.”

BBEdit 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.
