Wasn't this free before? Not that I am complaining. :) $5 is still high value for this great app.

This editor does not provide a way to direct compilation errors to a special window where they can be clicked on to take you back to the offending line in the source. Without this feature, it's just eye candy in actual use.

Had TextMate but didn't know about this feature: how do you call it: I just open an HTML file with TextMate, that I'm sure it's full or errors, but don't see what to do next?

I like Smultron 5. It's stable with a good array of features. The older versions of Smultron were more attractive in terms of ease of use.

For example:

1/ Snippets should be insertable via unique keystroke combinations (built into the macro).

2/ Preview (HTML) does not appear to work in Safari (6.0.5). I get a blank tab. I have to copy and paste my code into Smultron 3.5.1 to preview.

A 10.8 requirement for a text editor both seem steep and is. I blame Apple though. They make it more awkward to support several OS X versions then need be.

I don't really understand why you're blaming Apple for that; Smultron was free (coming from an open source fork, if I remember well) and was not supposed to be paid and in the MacAppStore, that's Peter Berg's choice. Though, this area of software is full of choice between simple and advanced freeware and expensive software with multiple features: if you don't like the condition of delivery of this one… try one of the plenty others. It's simple like that.

I blame Apple because they could have made it simple in Xcode to support several OS versions back and they choosed to not do that.

I selected Sublime for now. Smultron was just a placeholder anyway.

Not that I am apologizing Apple, but… they have to push the developers to adopt quickly the MacAppStore when they created it, do they?
And lot's of developers choose to maintain 2 versions, even in small team. But lot of them find benefits to join the MAS. That means they but we have the choice, and, for some, it's a good choice (goodies, little apps mono-functional, high level features, etc.). But for some system hacks or enhancers, I hope they never come to the AppStore (fortunately, sandboxing helps those kind of apps to stay away from the MAS).

That is beside the point. Apps can be on MAS and support OS X 10.6.
Apple didn't have to push developers at all. Apple developers have been pushed around for too long time by Apple.We should be happy we still have the great supply we have in the Mac market.

places like Macupdate, and before Cnet bought Versiontracker that too, do a great job advancing the Mac platform and don't spread garbage apps to a large extent. The vitality of the great Apple apps there is don't need the app store.

If MAS kills the other ways to distribute Mac apps Apple will kill the spirit of Mac. I don't think they will do that though.

Do the great supply die with the MAS?
And yes, after deciding to push out the MAS, Apple has to push it to the devs, or they won't come; that's not I'm enjoying, but it had to be their strategy. It bothers devs first, but now that several economic models work, they can choose between one or another.
I really love Macupdate (it's my opening page on browser), and hope they are not ruined by the MAS (I think they don't, but they react and give links to the MAS when there no other way, for example; the service is going on.
But you can't say that the MAS INVENT crapware! There's always be crapwarez on the mac, as far as I know (and I bought my first mac in 1996).
Finally, the need of a simple and safe updater for mac apps exists before the MAS open; I used to use one of those automatic software updater… that don't work tha much.
But be sure that I'll leave my mac if I'm stucked to the MAS only in the future; really, I don't think that will ever happen.

Excellent editor for all kind of purposes. I use this mainly for php stuff.

In the past free but well worth the small asking price.

Just so people don't get confused, the download link currently points to Smultron 4, not Smultron 5.

Remember to take a moment to check which version you're looking at before buying.

Not digging the multiple windows interface. That was one of the things that was so nice about smultron back in the days, when single-window applications was something unheard of. I'm not going back.
Well, while i'm at it, i never liked the in-application (toolbar, preference, etc) icons either. The main application icon is awesome though!
Still, i wish smultron all the best! :)
