Among its siblings like Atom, VS Code, sublime is the fastest and most fluent. But because of the slow update cycle and being a paid software, the community is smaller, therefore extensions are less, but enough to cover everyday usage and most popular languages.

I feel like this happens way too late. Atom has taken advantage from the "downtime" that Sublime had and maybe even exist just because of this. I myself can't see myself switching back from Atom because I can't trust the people behind Sublime to update it frequently, which seems a major quality characteristic nowadays. However, I don't want to badmouth this eventual release, so I will keep an active eye again on Sublime to see how the ecosystem evolves from now on. Kudos!

@mxmzb I feel like developers have a different opinion on that. Over on Hacker News people seem to like SB much more than Atom.
@mictuc I was talking explicitly about "me". Besides, I am not quite sure how much HN really is representing the group of people called "developers". At least it doesn't seem to represent me, and I consider myself as a developer, too. That's just too generalizing (and generalizing based on pretty much nothing) imho...
That's a surprise: after years in development its finally here. Sublime Text 3.0. The sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose. Congrats to the devs who made it happen. As for the new 3.0 features: "Certainly there are big features that 3.0 has: Goto Definition, a new syntax highlighting engine, a new UI, and an expanded API. However the difference is frequently felt in the hundreds of improvements that don't warrant being featured on their own: spell checking works better, automatic indentation does the right thing more often, word wrapping handles source code better, high DPI screens are properly supported, and Goto Anything is smarter. There's too much to list, but combined the difference is night and day."

After 7,000 years in beta, the day has finally come to reveal ST3 to the world. Developers rejoice as the original editor is back.

@mirmayne @ryan_roberts1 Atom is a bit too bloated in my opinion, it's got awesome features, but it's got too much unnecessary plugins & stuff that comes with by default . When it comes to free options, I was recently introduced to Visual Studio Code. Despite being very anti-Microsoft, VSC performs very well on my Macbook and is very lightweight compared to Atom & most other free editors. But still, nothing beats Sublime Text in terms of performance. I'm a huge fan!
