What's new in this version:

- Added a --tail option to the bbedit command-line tool. When opening a file, --tail instructs BBEdit to place the insertion point at the end of the file, and turn on Tail Mode. In this fashion, you can use bbedit --tail /path/to/some/file as an alternative to tail -f /path/to/some/file.
- --tail only makes sense when used for files, and cannot be used for pipes or standard input.

- If an .editorconfig file has a tab_width value specified, BBEdit will use that in preference to indent_size (since BBEdit does not have a notion of separate widths for tabs vs. indentation). In the absence of tab_width, BBEdit will use indent_size as before.

- Projects (once again) allow expansion of symlinked folders, with appropriate safeguards against circular link chains
- Fixed regression in which empty ("self-closing") XML tags would cause incorrect fold generation in HTML documents
- Added the tail mode property to the scripting dictionary
- Fixed bug which would cause pathological performance problems when editing files managed by a codeless language module which used literals (rather than patterns) for strings, blocks, and comments
- Fixed crash which would occur when quitting, if "Restore unsaved changes" was turned off, and the Multi-File Search window was open, and one or more of the documents being closed had unsaved changes
- Fixed regression in which pcre2 would complain about patterns that were too large
- Fixed crash which would occur when closing a document's only window while a long-running live match was in progress on that document from the Find window
- Made a change so that the extract scripting verb is handled correctly when passed a single item (such as text 1 of text document 1)
- When figuring out the common ancestor of all open documents, "Open File by Name" will no longer include notes in that computation (which can throw things off)
- Made a change to (maybe) work around a macOS bug (FB10429697) in which the font server would cause a stall when activating the application
- Worked around a bug in Apple Mail (FB9978404) in which it would fail to accept text dragged from within an editing window
