Bare Bones Updates BBEdit 8, Adds Subversion Support

Bare Bones Software updated its popular professional HTML and text editor Monday. BBEdit 8.1 "now includes support for Subversion, plus enhancements to its groundbreaking iText Factoryi feature, and various interface refinements and fixes for reported issues," the company said.

Subversion is a leading Open Source next-generation version control system, used by Open Source projects, such as Apache, Samba, Zope and Debian.

"The Subversion project would not succeed without the community of developers and ISVs who improve it and incorporate it into their own products and services. Weire very happy to see Bare Bones Software incorporate support for Subversion in BBEdit, which gives their customers the ability to collaborate with other team members in distributed environments," said Brian Behlendorf, CTO of CollabNet, the sponsor behind Subversionis development.

The update can be downloaded free of charge to registered BBEdit 8 customers.

BBEdit 8 sells for $199; a discounted cross-upgrade price of $129 is available to owners of Adobe GoLive or Macromedia Dreamweaver, and registered owners of TextWrangler. Upgrades from BBEdit 7.0 and 7.1 cost $49, while owners of older versions can upgrade for $59.
