Alan does not owe anybody anything. If you are unhappy with TM1 use another application - end of story.
No, he does not but since it has been almost 2 years since his last update on the subject (which I've read 10x) he could drop a line with a little update. What I'm concerned about is bundle development. I feel like the bundles are going to take a while to populate the new version, so even after it drops it's going to take time before it is really as useful as 1x.
Further more, without any information on bundle backward compatibility (my gut says 'no', at least without modification) does it make sense to invest a lot of time and resources on developing new bundles for 1x? If 2x is gone for good, yes. If 2x is a year or two away, yes. But without knowing, I find it hard to devote the time from my busy schedule.
I know Allan says he isn't really concerned with things like that, and I tend to agree that they aren't his problems to worry about if he doesn't want to. However, a lot of people do a lot of 'real work' with TextMate and a little information would go a long way towards helping everyone prepare for the future.
As always, Allan, please keep up the good work. I know the feeling of wanting to perfect a project, and at the end of the day this is your project and you can do with it what you like. Good luck with everything, I'm sure you're having a blast developing it. :)
Thanks for everything, Brandon
I 'm given to understand the TM1 bundles will work, though they might not be able to take full advantage of new features without work.
So, I am keeping on working on bundles because i can benefit now, and there's not future hit to speak of: Edit and contribute away! best, tim

When a girl wouldn't call me back after two years, that generally wasn't an appropriate time to bombard her with demands to keep me posted on her social life's status.
