License and registration

License and registration

Postby sudaraka on Mon Sep 26, 2011 8:58 pm

I just found out about Sublime and trying out the Sublime 2 beta version. It seems to be great and looks like some thing I can consider as my main editor/IDE.
Few things i need to know before I switch though:

  1. Is Siblime Text an opensource project?
  2. What license id the project under?
  3. What's the difference between registers and unregistered versions/instances?
  4. Is the registration fee a one time payment or recurring
  5. Do I need to register multiple installations separately?
  6. Do i need to re-register new releases?

1. no
2. see the eula: http://www.sublimetext.com/buy
3. see http://www.sublimetext.com/buy
4. registration covers versions 1 and 2, but if there's a 3 then it won't cover that.

On 3:
Sublime Text may be downloaded and evaluated for free, however a license must be purchased for continued use.


"continued use".. hmm, okay, so it implies that the unregistered version will expire? How long until that happens? Why is this so vague?

3 is covered if you purchase a ST2 license right now as it's technically a ST 3 license.

If you go to the "Buy" page and click on "Frequently Asked Questions" you will find your answers.
Among other information it also says:
A license is valid for Sublime Text 3, and includes all point updates, as well as access to prior versions (e.g., Sublime Text 2). Future major versions, such as Sublime Text 4, will be a paid upgrade.

IMHO it's only fair to purchase a license if you're planning to keep on using ST.

Nope, actually ST unregistered never expires, it keeps popping up an alert from time to time asking you to buy a license, like some commercial plugins do, but will continue to be usable and without limitations afaik.
