I was excited to see that there was a new icon, so I downloaded the new build, and I didn't like it very much.
Then I thought about it a bit more, and now... I really
don't like it. It clashes with every other icon in my dock because it's tilted so far backwards.
The Apple Human Interface Guidelines
for icon design have this to say:
Apple wrote:Choose the right perspective for your icon. You want the perspective of your icon to match the perspective of other icons in the same genre. For example, a user app icon should look like it’s resting on a desk in front of you, whereas most utility app icons use a straight-on perspective.
I'm not sure whether to count Sublime Text as a user app or a utility app in this sense, but in either case, the perspective is way off.
I also think this clashes with Windows icon standards. Most Windows icons use the straight-on perspective.
