BBEdit 10.1

BBEdit 10.1 is a terrific update, just a few months after BBEdit 10. The “Open File by Name” command has at last gotten a major improvement: it shows the list of matching files as you type. (There’s also some cleverness as to what you can type; see the release notes.) I’ve used similar features in Emacs, TextMate, and Xcode, and it’s hard to overstate how useful this is. I had been using LaunchBar with sub-searches for particular folders to quickly open files in BBEdit. Now I can simply use BBEdit projects.

Additionally: Unix filter scripts now operate on stdin rather than on a temporary file passed as an argument, and the new markup pop-over operates much more smoothly.
