Project still alive?

Smyge, I'm not concerned about the money. I'm concerned, as tack, about spending tons of time and effort setting up Sublime as my primary dev tool if it turns it doesn't work in the next iteration of OSX or Windows or whatnot.

Current version is great, but that doesn't matter much if it doesn't work when python, windows, osx, whatever breaks it.

I need a maintained text editor... hopefull Skinner chimes in on the issue :-)

Maybe he's the ultimate troll? Spend years writing awesome editor, stop working on it, watch people go nuts over lack of progress. :mrgreen:

I also don't understand Jon's silence. Like many others, I spend most of my day in SublimeText and am perfectly content with the current version.

Nevertheless, it wouldn't kill Jon to give a very basic update every few weeks, something along the lines of:
  • "I'm making good progress on the new über-secret changes to SublimeText. I'll should be able to give you more information in X days/weeks/months. Until then, please be patient - the new features will blow your mind."
  • ...or "I'm taking a bit of a break from actively working on SublimeText but I plan to start again in X days/weeks/months..."
  • ...or "My dog ate the latest SublimeText code and I had to start over from scratch..."

He could even just re-post the same message every two weeks and people would be happy to know that something is going on. A bit of communication would go a long way in keeping the users and the community happy.

For me Jon's silence is the concerning part, not the lack of updates to the code.

The silence is worrying. I spent the last 6 months adapting my coding style to sublime..

It's a *very* good editor, but it can't stop it's development. As an example, it is, in my opinion, missing an important feature for python editing: support for the local system's python.

Almost *every* single tool/plugin available for code lookup/refactoring/etc uses sublime's python to run the code in the textfile for analysis.
If you're using Python 2.7, this is a problem. As an example, in my current project we used a ton of dictionary expressions, which fail badly in 2.6.

So, most Python tools for sublime are, ironically, useless for 2.7-based projects (or, I assume, 3.x)

I prefer sublime rather than one of the various eclipse-based environments due to it's amazing speed as well as it being simply the best text editor I had the pleasure to use. But *after* I write the code, the whole editing/debugging/refactoring spiel is a pain...

I am on the fence here as well, if development has stopped, then I will not likely buy the editor. However, I am evaluating it and it is certainly the best I have ever used :) I await more blog posts and development progress.

As in... you're afraid he's dead, along with the project? :D

He's collecting evidence of stalking.

Aaaaanyway, so someone is claiming the following:

Google buys Sublime (not surprising given the fact a lot of googlers use Sublime), and ST3 will be announced as a (free) Google product within months.

This site should stop talking payments, or will have another WindowBuilder outrage....
