Sublime Text 2

I ran across this sweet looking text editor from a Facebook post by Jackson Miller. Oh how I love textmate but let’s face it …. it has not been updated in a long time and I think our favorite OS X editor may start loosing it’s users to new editors like this.

I for one love textmate and have spent a lot of time getting things just they way I like them but I think I am going to have to give Sublime Text 2 a try now that there is an OS X version

Sublime Text 2: Public Alpha

Sublime Text 2 is available now as a public alpha, for Windows, OS X, and Linux.

Sublime Text 2 started life as Sublime Text X, and was first available as a preview to registered users several months ago. Since then, there’s been an average of one new release a week. It’s come a long way, and it’s time to open it to a wider audience.

Sublime Text 2 is currently at a late alpha stage. Primarily, this means there are still several features missing compared to Sublime Text 1. These include spell checking, bookmarks, distraction free editing, a full python API, and general UI polish. These features will be coming over the next few months.
