TextWrangler 4.5 Now Retina Ready; Gets New Go Menu, Compare Against Previous Versions, and More

Bare Bones Software has announced the release and immediate availability of TextWrangler 4.5, a significant update to its high performance, general purpose text editor for Mac OS X.

TextWrangler 4.5 now looks sharp on Macs with high-resolution Retina displays. In addition, TextWrangler 4.5 introduces a Go menu, a new Compare Against Previous Version command, and more.

“BBEdit looks really sharp on a Retina display, and now TextWrangler does too,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software, Inc. “We also took the opportunity to include a range of refinements to keep TextWrangler fresh and current. TextWrangler represents the quality of text editor the Mac community deserves.”

The new Go menu provides convenient access to Jump Point, Function, Line Number and Center Line locations for easier navigation within a document. The new Compare Against Previous Version command leverages OS X’s file versioning to quickly access and compare the the active document’s current contents with previously stored versions. TextWrangler now requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later, with the new Compare Against Previous Version command requiring Mac OS X 10.7 or later.

TextWrangler 4.5 includes several new command keystroke equivalents and keyboard navigation adjustments to provide additional comfort for refugees from other platforms. TextWrangler 4.5 also includes other refinements and fixes for specific reported issues in this award-winning HTML and text editor.
