Much appreciated, but in terms of bug reports/fixes, there are some pretty big nags out there with a lot of forum activity, like these:
Request to allow disabling of "Preview Tab/View"
"goto anything" performance on retina panels

@swrobel: From the very first line of the preview on click thread:

UPDATE: From build 2198, there is a new setting "preview_on_click" for controlling the behaviour.

As I reported, this doesn't affect Goto anything, so it's a half-solution.

What's happening with Textmate2 is a bad joke. IMHO this should not happen with SL2, too. I think many fear that's going to happen consindering how little information about progress and future plans is available to the public.


TM is not much of an example. Folks paid "good money" for a product that had similarly responsive dev and active community for support for years and is still a usable piece of software. Now TM2 is being rapidly developed as open source with a free upgrade to TM1 users. I know I got my $60 out of the 6 years of daily TextMate usage.

Nowhere on the site does Jon suggest product support is part of the purchase price. The homepage clearly lists all the features of the product -- that's what is being sold. Nor does it say anywhere on the site that you're paying for eternal updates. You download the trial, if you like it, you pay for it. Transaction complete. Jon put in hundreds of hours building that product, you bought it based on where it was then.

The sense of entitlement have for a $60 purchase is so weird. I've never experienced stellar support from an indie developer, nor have I necessarily expected it as long as the software worked as advertised. Serious bugs that inhibit the usability of the product are the only thing I can understand people being so angry about. But beyond that, we're just plain lucky to have such an amazing editor for such a reasonable price.

Total agree, I am a new user (was a VIM user for years) the $60.00 price tag is a steal! I purchased the license after using it for one day!, hands down the best editor I have ever used. :D

He's apparently heads-down on some unspecified 'big thing' for Sublime. He seems to surface on the forum very occasionally since the v2 official release.

You might try sending a PM: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2
