TextWrangler 2.1

My favorite "free beer" text editor for OS X, TextWrangler, has been updated to 2.1. The list of fixes, changes, and improvments is long and detailed, though there isn't any particular item that jumps out (except for perhaps that cmd-opt-doubleclick trick). Anyway, here's the download link. Requires 10.3.5+.


  • The new version is appears snappier too.

  • I'm not convinced by it at all. I think all the usual considerations about "not reinventing wheels" - not adding parallel code to do what the OS will do already - and about "creeping featuritis" have great force.

    But it does at least come without strings. Subethaedit unfortunately doesn't now. Drunken Batman has blogged about this before, and I think he's right. A promise to offer something free should mean just that. Not "but now it means pay if ...". Not "but it has a watermark ..."
