This has been my favorite editor by far, but frankly the lack of communication, especially to those of us who have paid a (in my opinion) significant amount for a text editor, is completely unacceptable. As of the time of writing jps has still not been online since Jan 29th and the last release was in mid-December. I wouldn’t even mind it so much if there were dev builds being sent out as an indicator of active work, but there hasn’t been – for a long time. It seems as if the entire thing has been given up on.
I understand if he doesn’t want to continue development. People get burned out and want to move on which is one of the unfortunate side effects of being the sole developer on a paid-for product model. But it means he needs to either give it to someone else to continue development (with the current Sublime Text fan base I’m sure there are a lot of companies that would be willing to take it on) or minimally to say “sorry, I’m done” instead of leaving everyone hanging. It’s a shame that such a great editor is meeting such a terrible end.
Not that ranting and complaining is going to do any good, but as someone who has paid for and invested a lot of time into this editor I feel I should voice my opinion.
