- Retina text rendering.
- Commands for moving the current line up and down. I had been using AppleScripts to do this.
- A new Go > Named Symbol sheet to help you quickly jump to a function or marker by typing a few characters of its name. Previously, I had been type-selecting in the pop-up menus, but this lets you search by non-prefix substrings.
- Mac OS X’s Versions feature is not supported in the normal way, but there’s the potentially more useful “Compare Against Previous Version” command, which may prove handy for the few text files I edit that aren’t stored in Git.
- A smarter Open Counterpart command that finds all files with the same basename, not just the extension pairs built into BBEdit.
- New floating windows to display markers, jump points, and functions. Previously, these had only been available in pop-up menus, which were more difficult to search. Jump points are more useful now that you can visualize them.
- You can now create new documents via AppleScript that are marked as not modified—useful for temporary documents that you don’t want to be prompted to save when closing.
