  2. Apparently there’s a wave of new text editors for Windows.

    Are you considering TextMate-ish features for ST? I think it’s inevitable to bring up that name when you talk about text editors nowadays, and the one to use as measuring rod.

    Any plans of demos, alpha/beta releases and the like yet? :-)

    Keep up the good work!

    While there’s no fixed release date yet, it’s not _too_ far away.

  4. Is there eventually going to be ClearType support? (I’ve spent plenty of time in Emacs with ProFont, it’s not a critical feature or anything.)

    I have you added to my bookmark toolbar. You have my attention.
