If he have some progress to share with us, I'd like to hear. If he's merely going
to talk about why it is not finished, I don't understand why he ever bother to talk
Those who are still here don't need any explanation. Be serious, there are many
excellent software with releasing cycle more than three years. And this is certainly true
for a text editor. Think about Vim, last major upgrade, 7.0, was released four years ago.
And I think many of us truly understand why Allan cannot release anything now and
don't need his explanation.
For those who "lost hope", whatever you explain to them, they will still be
angry and post offensive things.
I confess that I am among those who desperately want TM2. But still, I don't see any
point to talk about why it's not finished yet. I think he can just work silently and
tell us something excited when he is ready. If there is anything make me lost hope,
it's not the truth that TM2 may not come out eventually, but TM1.5 may be dead
someday. It has some compatibility problem with snow leopard. Though most of them have a
work around or been fixed. But what about next Mac OS X? But if I remember correctly,
Allan had talked about his failure to maintain updates of 1.5 before.

My suggest is that you stop talking anything about TM2 unless you are
going to release anything. I don't think there is anyone want to hear
anymore from you explaining why it is not finished.

So it's wrong that Allan does NOT talk about TM2 for a few months, and
then again it's wrong WHEN he talks about it?
