I have filed a bug on this change:


But the bug was closed immediately; the clang people (who are extremely nice) made clear that there is no going back. Thus it is crucial that TextMate 2 should remove '-fobjc-default-synthesize-properties' (and any other incorrect arguments) from its clang arguments in the build process, as this will stop compilation dead when people upgrade to Xcode 5.1. Previously, incorrect arguments were silently ignored; now they are fatal errors. m.
