This is the email I received from Jon on Dec 23:
I'm glad you're enjoying Sublime Text!
I'm presently working on a prototype for 2.0 - I'll be making an announcement on the forums in the next couple of weeks.
Interface-wise, it's quite different, so if you're considering buying a license, I suggest holding off a while until you see where it'll be heading.
Since then nothing. I was about to purchase a Sublime license but the lack of updates and activity here has convinced me not to. No one wants to spend money on abandonware even if it's a nice product.
(Unfortunately, development of the other Textmate inspired editor for Windows, E
, has also stalled.)
