The developer (Jon) has made a comment or two that he is working on updates for sublime so I'm sure its not dead. I think its just a stable release and there hasn't been a new feature release yet.

The usual canned answer would be "when it's ready and not before"

As a software engineer I truely appreciate the work Jon does and am in awe of his skills. If he does not do any releases for the next 5 years because of what ever "major update" he is working on im not going to lose any sleep over it. ST2 in it's current incantation is the single best editor I have ever used. Jon will release the next installment when he feels it is ready for general consumption. This could be next week or it could be 5 years from now.

I myself put aside a project because i burned out working on it. For the past few years I would try dive back in and almost instantly lose focus. ST2 has revived my "get up and go" and I am now working on it full time once again.

I am positive I will love what ever changes he is working on and even though I only just registered quite recently, if the next release is ST3 I for one will be upgrading (i hope it has virtual spaces tho :).

Come on now. The stable SublimeText 2.0 was released just six months ago and has seen one update since then. How often should it be updated to not be considered dead?

We could compare to another popular editor, where version 1.5 was released seven years ago and is still the current version (admittedly with many minor updates). Version 2 of that one is in alpha mode and has been so for at least three years. Compared to that, development of SublimeText is moving at breakneck speed.

I recently watched an amazing documentary called Indie Game on NetFlix and it really gives you a real world perspective of soloist/duo's hectic life while they slave years of their lives building games, this is no different then what Jon has done IMHO. Though going Rogue like Allan Odgaard would not be ideal, but give Jon some slack, for all we know he's slaving on ST3 or taking a much needed break before getting knee deep back into ST.

On a positive note Jon has not given us any false promises, though silence or get it when it's done can be frustrating it will never save face and false promises only lead to infuriated customers. So with that said enjoy ST2 as it's an amazing piece of software.

stable SublimeText 2.0


Stable except for the couple of crashes every day when some other app causes an integrated <-> discrete graphics chip switch on my retina mbp :)
I'll get around to sending jps a stack trace one of these days.

Oh so this is why sublime often closes itself when I close firefox!! (I also have a 15-inch rmbp)

Also speaking of problems, some time ago, shortly after I installed the latest graphics driver, sublime started hangling when I select text using mouse in certain areas of views. The simplest scenario that leads to a hang, is pressing Command+F, typing something and then selecting that something with mouse going from the last letter to the first one and then further to the left. As soon as the cursor leaves the boundaries of the text box, Sublime gets fried consuming 100% cpu until I kill it. No idea whether this is called by the driver update or it's some plugin auto-updated through PackageControl. Maybe this sounds familiar?

Upd. Found the culprit. The code as simple as the three lines provided below deterministically hangs Sublime on my laptop:
Code: Select all
class FooListener(sublime_plugin.EventListener):
  def on_selection_modified(self, view):
    view.settings().set("foo", None)

I'm on a rMBP as well and noticed a few days the Anywhere window was coming to a crawl, typing and scrolling in the Anywhere window was locking up. Had to restart OS X 10.8.2 as restarting ST2 didn't fix it. Only happened once so it could have been something else causing ST2 to crawl. Other then that I've not had many issues on the Retina. The only thing that has been somewhat sluggish is selecting, but I'm sure that's due Jon writing his own selection engine instead of using CoreText or something. Other then that I've not had a ST2 hard crash since 2 went stable.

Yikes. I was looking forward to getting an rMBP and being super productive on it with ST2.
