I notice you post from a Uni address. Is it possible that the Uni student
computers have a similar behaviour to those at the Uni I am at? At the end
of each login session, the computers rollback anything the students have
done to a known state, including any program updates.
This means that to update a program and have it "stick", it needs to be
done by one of the system administrators.
You could examine this further by watching the Textmate versionas shown in
the About box.
Hope this helps!

get something wrong?
I am puzzled why you recently got this impression, as the last update
the 26th of March, so there has been no updates for the last
6-7 weeks, even if you had changed the update preference from “normal
releases” (default) to “nightly builds”.
That said, the current TextMate beta builds do expire after 5 months,
notify you about this after 3 months. This is something some
detest, so I’ll make it so that licensed users can choose to ignore this
(in nearest future).
Of course I would still prefer if (even licensed) users kept their
up-to-date since there are some interdependencies between the
bundles and TextMate, i.e. knowing that no-one is running a version of
TextMate older than 5 months means that bundles can be updated to rely on
infrastructure that is at least 5 months old.
There is a version dependence system for bundles, but we do not store
By “impression” I mean: every second week I have a computer lab session in
this pool and pretty much each time
some students can’t start TextMate because they get the message that it’s
outdated. I will check what settings are
used in Textmate the next days. As I am personally using VIM so I am not
familiar about update settings used in
TextMate. I understand that you are interested in users haven up-to-date
versions. But we would be more interested
in buying a license that works until the next Mac OS X version. At least
updates should happen via the AppStore so
that we apply all updates together once a month.
