Software Update: Sublime Text 3.0 Build 3083 Beta

An update has been released for the beta of Sublime Text released earlier this week. This comprehensive text editor will especially appeal to programmers. Among the long list of features we find include a minimap, the ability to select different sections in a text for editing at the same time, syntax highlighting with support for over 40 languages, and the ability to switch from macros and Python based plugins to use. Sublime Text is available for Windows, Linux, and OS X. A license costs $70 and is valid per user, not per machine. The changelog for build 3083 looks like this:

Changes in build 3083

  • Fixed high CPU usage caused by a corrupt index. This was was occuring for some users upgrading from 3065
  • Added setting index_workers to control the number of threads used for file indexing. By default the number of threads is based on the number of CPU cores. By setting index_workers to 1 or 2, indexing will be slower, but less intrusive
  • Fixed a crash when showing the Command Palette with an empty .sublime-build file
  • Tab completion no longer completes numbers. Edit/Show Completions can still be used for this
