Who in the Macintosh coding community has not heard of TextMate? And who is not aware that the long-awaited TextMate 2 has been out as an open-source beta for some time now? Probably no one.

The truth, at least for me, is that TextMate 2 is a fine coder’s editor right now, in its beta form. It does have a few awkward spots and some features still to be added, but it’s stable and very capable. And considering that the choices for powerful Mac-like editors are few, I’m warming back up to the idea of using it for my full-time editor.
