BBEdit picks up automatic code completion, a new trial model, and more

BBEdit, the versatile text editor for Mac from Bare Bones Software, has hit version 11.6, adding support for Kite for checking your code, along with a brand new trial model.

With Kite support, BBEdit can now check your code while you edit. Kite offers code completion and error correction, and will even suggest documentation. BBEdit is the first third-party application with built-in Kite support.

BBEdit 11.6 also brings with it a new model for trials. Going forward, you'll be able to use all of BBEdit's features for free for the first 30 days. After that, you can still use the app's editing features, though you'll need to pay to access the web authoring tools and other features.

In addition to these changes, BBEdit 11.6 comes packed with over 100 updates, including new features, enhancements, and fixes. Improvements have been made across the app, from the look and feel to the Find Differences feature. As a reminder, you'll need OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 or later in order to run the latest version of BBEdit.

You can get BBEdit 11.6 directly from Bare Bones Software right now.
