*** Textmate 2 - Open Sourced ***

One of most known code/text editors on OS X went open source. Since yesterday TextMate 2 is available on GitHub.

Allan Odgaard's TextMate has been a beloved text editor since 2004 and one of gem of Mac's favorite apps for about just as long, but since 2009, development on the app has slowed to a crawl: three years ago, Odgaard said TextMate 2 was about 90% complete, but it didn't hit the web until end of year 2011, also a final version still hasn't been released.

In a surprise (and very awesome move), its source code has: TextMate 2 is going open source.

If you're interested in tinkering or even compiling TextMate 2 for yourself, you can grab it on GitHub.
