BBEdit 13.0 Release Notes

BBEdit 13.0 is a major upgrade, which includes significant new features, visible changes to existing features, and fixes for reported issues.

Because BBEdit 13 builds on features that were added during the BBEdit 12 cycle, please take a few moments to review the release notes for BBEdit 12.6, BBEdit 12.5, BBEdit 12.1, and BBEdit 12.0, or browse the release notes archive.

For detailed information on using any of BBEdit's features, please refer to the user manual (choose "User Manual" from BBEdit's Help menu).
