BBEdit 9.0 released

Bare Bones just released BBEdit 9.0, the latest update to their fantastic text editor and development environment.

I have been beta testing 9 for months on my desktop, and every time I used 8 on my lap top I really noticed the missing new features, which is a great sign for any upgrade.

BBEdit 9 adds projects (which would have been great when I was developing Interarchy in Pascal in BBEdit). It also now allows you to edit in browser windows which is wonderful to finally have.

One interesting new addition that I've used more than I expected is the Scratchpad - which is just an always-saved text window. It's great for putting a copy of code you're about to rewrite, or a few notes, or some statistics. Basically it nicely covers that time frame between clipboard history (minutes or hours) and Yojimbo (permanent storage). Things you might need tomorrow or the next day but not after that.

Great update! Congrats to the Bare Bones team!
