ohyah, bbedit 8.0 is out. from the outset, it seems to have an incredible number of additions including one i've wanted for a while - a document drawer to keep track of all of your open files. the old, multi-window was was getting pretty lame. this new method of keeping all the files in in the same drawer, selectable now, seems cool enough.

while we're at it, barebones seems to have redesigned their web site as well (there are still some straggling pages), but things look pretty sharp. additionally, the bb logo seems to be become a red gear as well.

i never really liked the purple on purple thing anyway.

what do you think of bbedit 8.0's feature list? anything there you're keen on?

I just wish this thing was totally Cocoa already. Is there a good reason why this is still a Carbon app?

mm. i didn't realise that. i wonder why they're clinging onto carbon? do you think it has anything to do with non-adopters who still want to use it in os 9? is carbon compatible with os 9 w/o X involved?

People still living in OS 9 need to lose these apps. When they're left without more upgrades cold turkey will really make some progress towards dumping the legacy support in OS X and really seeing some innovation.

i agree. that's just brutal. time to move on, people. if i ever have to help people with older systems, i charge them extra because i forget 1/2 of it all.
