Nightly Builds


Nightly builds are the bleeding edge versions of Sublime Text 2. Each nightly build has a corresponding post in the forum. Please report any issues with nightly builds in the corresponding announcement post, and not in other threads.

Nightly builds are available to registered users only.

Sublime Text 3 is currently in beta, and contains many improvements over Sublime Text 2.

The current Sublime Text 2 nightly build is 2219.


Each build of Sublime Text belongs to one of the below three channels. If you install a dev or nightly build, you'll only get update notifications for new builds from the same channel.
