The new update for the free MacOS text-editor - BBEdit Lite 4.6 - is available for download.

Among the most visible improvements are an enhanced Hard Wrap command and the ability to assign key equivalents to BBEdit Lite's menu commands, via the Set Menu Keys option.

Users can now search across multiple files – and Unix-style pattern searching is available for more complex searching tasks. BBEdit Lite 4.6 also benefits from numerous other interface and performance tweaks.

Also included in the package is support for the BBEdit plug-in architecture. A number of plug-ins that automate common text-conversion tasks are included with the freeware package.

BBEdit Lite 4.6 is available for free download at the Bare Bones Web site.
