Sublime Text is one of the most widely used code editors by developers and for good reason, with all the different plugins and other things out there for it, it’s an easy choice. If you’re one of those developers that use Sublime Text then there is some great news for you. Sublime announced Friday June 28th that Sublime Text 3 Public Beta is now available for both registered users and the general public. Sublime Text 3 is “the fastest, most stable, most polished version of Sublime Text yet.” Originally announced January 29th of this year (2013) was the first beta, this is the 9th build (build 3037).
So what’s new is Sublime Text 3? For starters file change detection was improved, smarter atomic save, improved rendering performance and many bug fixes. As well as:
Sublime Text 3 should work on all systems that currently run Sublime Text 2, with the exception of OS X 10.6. Pricing has also changed, increasing from $59 to $70. As quoted from Sublime’s website “Users with a Sublime Text 2 license key can continue using the key with Sublime Text 3 while it’s in beta. When 3.0 is released, upgrades will be available for $30, or $15 for users who have purchased recently. The cut off date for the reduced upgrade price will be based on the actual date of the 3.0 release.”
