BBEdit 10.5 adds Retina support (updated)

BBEdit 105 adds Retina support, new featuresBare Bones Software's HTML and text editing program, BBEdit, has just received a sharp new update that adds a wealth of new features and improvements, as well as full Retina display support for Apple's latest MacBooks.

Version 10.5 adds the ability to compare the current document against previous "Versions" for people running OS X 10.7 or later. It is also now easier to update image dimensions in HTML documents, as well as a bunch of other features. One that stands out is a new "Preview Filter" option which lets you run a live preview window of your document through a filter of your choice using any AppleScript, Unix executable, or shell script. For fans of MultiMarkdown this means that you can now create a "Preview Filter" that will let you see your document processed with Multimarkdown extensions, but the possibilities go far beyond that.

You can read the full list of changes on the official website, and if you like what you see, you can pick up BBEdit 10.5 for US$49.99 via the site's store.

(A previous version of this article referred to some existing features in BBEdit which, while present in 10.5, are not new features in this release.)
