Not yet.
But I have found the howto in the manual and will set it up tomorrow ...

Thanks for reacting so fast!

Yes, I had done that already, but nothing seems to happen.
I only see an empty "CodeBrowser" window in TextMate but I don't know  
what should appear there ...

I am not sure if you can really compare beamer and koma here. Beamer  
has some syntax which is quite different from standard LaTeX. But  
koma is just a variant of LaTeX, it replaces the standard article,  
book etc. classes by scrartcl, scrbook etc. and gives you some more  
options. I don't think that koma support will hurt any standard LaTeX  

But I will have a look at the LateX and Beamer bundles and try to  
understand what they are acually doing. Perhaps it is really a good  
idea to copy the standard bundle and add the koma-specific terms here  
and there.

Thanks for your patience with us TextMate newbies,
