BBEdit X 6.1
Authored by: krusty76 on Apr 20, '01 10:59:02PM

it's out now ... so we can all heave a tremendous sigh of relief. no more using TextEdit for things beyond it's intentions ... and no more playing with kludgy (and sometimes expensive) apps like JEdit, Pepper, etc.

yeah for BareBones!

BBEdit X 6.1
Authored by: dynamo on Apr 27, '01 07:52:23AM

I thought so too - and used it happily on my PBG4/500/512 until it caused a kernel panic after nearly 1 hour of use. I gave it another shot, and had it crash on me losing changes. This is exactly what I got os x to AVOID, so I think i'll be going back to project builder, which lacks bbedit's cool (though not complete, imho) xml syntax highlighting, but is written in cocoa, which means stability.

I've been learning cocoa frantically since the developer release candidate (aka 10.0) came out; and would trust anything written on cocoa 10x more than the same thing in written in carbon because all the stuff that is likely to cause a crash is already written for the developer. It (almost) feels like cheating.

When bbedit moves to cocoa, or goes through a few point releases, I'll give it another shot. in the mean time, I'm pretty happy having my OS never, ever crash, even if I don't get syntax highlighting.
