Project still alive?

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....


Who claims that? Source?

If that's actually true, there's 4 things that will make the future of SublimeText extremely bright:
- Everything Google touches turns to gold (Almost, a very few exceptions)
- OpenSource (Selfexplainable)
- Not that $59 is much at all, but free is free.
- Helps people like me, who tries to develop using 100% opensource software/libs.

I heard Jon has multiple accounts on the forum and he's actually the one making all these posts... to build suspense.

Hell, maybe I'm Jon and this is also just an elaborate form of misdirection before I release SUBLIME TEXT 3 and HALF LIFE 3!

I've restored the dev and nightly pages now, thanks for the heads up. They got accidentally reverted to an older version yesterday when I moved the buy page to using SSL.

I have no intention of posting every week just to say 'still working on it'.

That being said, there will be something fun in the near future.

Nice to know, I am eager to see what it is.

But what about bug fixes ?

Don't understand your roadmap... do you want fast forward to ST3 and forget ST2 support ?
I've no problem if you want to release a ST3 with an upgrade fee, but I expect some support for ST2 for a while, at least until ST3 is production ready.

I have some concern about adjudgement ST2 as completely stable and finished products. For example on Retina display Mac's it still not working OK. It is my reason why I'm worried about vitality of project. ST2 still need active development and long silence from author can make wondering whats up.

Best wishes

Still the last nightly is older than the last dev build... so no work has gone into sublime text 2, at least not visibly externally. No blog posts after the release of sublime text 2 either. Seen that the last dev build has better retina display support I can't believe that there is no need for a new stable release. I don't car much for $60 bucks but changing my default editor for something closed source I at least need a proof that there is work being done on it.

Sorry for being this bleak, but I've been bitten by textmate already so I'm very worried about st2.

Haunted? That's a bit hyperbolic. Posting well-tempered and legitimate criticisms about a product on that product's forum doesn't seem unreasonable to me.
