The info from the wiki is not relevant for 2.0.

I’ve had the OS think TextMate could not be opened. The fix is to ‘touch TextMate.app’.

Though if you delete your existing copy, download a new via your browser, and extract, then I don’t see how this could happen.

If the problem persists then run ‘file’ and ‘shasum’ on TextMate.app/Contents/MacOS/TextMate and post the result (that would indicate if your binary is indeed corrupt).
