BBEdit 11.6.4 requires Mac OS X 10.9.5 or later, and is compatible with macOS 10.12 "Sierra".
This release contains no new features or changes.
Fixed case in which a "this input will give your worksheet heartburn" error was reported for input which would not actually cause any problems.
Restored the "
search string" scripting property of the Open File by Name window to working order.
Fixed crash which would occur when (or after) closing a Differences window.
Fixed a bug in which some editor settings were not properly applied when opening an existing document.
Restored case transformations in Grep replace patterns to working order, by backing out the previous fix (which caused more problems than it solved, as it turns out).
Fixed bug in which explicit EditorConfig keys for
insert_final_newline did not override the global or language-specific user preferences.
Fixed bug in which the Text Options navigation bar item would operate on the wrong text view in Differences windows, unless you clicked in the desired view before using it.
Fixed the cause of a rare crash at startup.
Fixed a bug in which differences in the last line of two compared files would be ignored when "Ignore Blank Lines" was turned on and the final line in either file did not end with a line break.
Updated the copyright year.
Made a change to quiet a (harmless) system console message at startup.
Fixed crash which would occur occasionally when performing operations which rapidly switched between different documents in the same window (such as navigating through a lot of different files in a search results window).
Fixed bug in which the Zip archive reader would leak memory, which posed a problem when processing a large quantity of Zip archives (during multi-file search or text factory application).
The "Clear History" command on the Open Recent menu will now ask the OS to clear its own history as well, which should in turn remove recent items from the application's Dock menu.
Fixed a bug in which processing very large files with a text factory would cause the application to run out of memory in cases where one or more of the operations took a very long time.
