Fixed regression in which double-clicking a lone selected file in the FTP/SFTP browser window would not open it as was intended.
Fixed a cosmetic issue with the layout of the Preferences window sidebar when running on pre-11.0 versions of macOS.
Made a change to the "Get Info" panel so that spaces are allowed at the beginning and/or end of a file name, as when renaming items in the Finder.
Fixed crash which would occur when trying to use Quick Look to preview items in a Disk Browser window's sidebar.
Fixed bug in which the active conda environment (if used) was
not properly propagated to
#! script execution via the "Run"
command when in Free Mode. When running a Python script this
would usually result in the wrong interpreter version being used,
and/or packages unexpectedly not being found.
When verifying the suitability of a compiled executable, BBEdit now allows 64-bit x86_64 (Intel) binaries to qualify when running natively on arm64 (M1). This allows things to keep working when you haven't updated your installed tools yet. (But you should.)
Worked around macOS 12 behavior change which caused menu keyboard equivalents for some items to be incorrectly "translated" for users of non-English keyboard layouts. This broke both display and invocation of those equivalents for those users.
