Sublime Text receives big improvements

Published 4/13/2017 by Ugotsta

After a bit of a dry spell, Sublime Text has received a rather significant update with a laundry list of additions and bug fixes. New enhancements include a refreshed UI with full high DPI support and an adaptive theme that inherits from the color scheme, touch support on Windows and a bunch of improvements to highlighting for multiple languages.

Once the reigning editor of choice among developers, Sublime Text faced serious competition when GitHub released its massively extensible, open source Small Atom iconAtom editor. While Atom is definitely a worthy competitor, Sublime Text simply can't be beat on its fast load time. It also feels faster, like a machine optimized app in contrast to Atom's extensible but slightly weightier, Small Electron / Atom Shell iconElectron / Atom Shell interface. On a similar note, Small Visual Studio Code iconVisual Studio Code has presented some serious recent competition as well. It's also built with Electron, so Sublime Text has that speed advantage once again. Altogether though, these great text editors provide a surplus of excellent choices for developers.

This latest update is a dev build, something those using Sublime Text would likely be accustomed to using. As it's a dev build, it's only available to those who have purchased a license though that purchase does allow use of the software across all major platforms including Mac, Windows and Linux.
