Allow me preface this comment by mentioning that TextMate is an absolutely great text editor.

The problem is, it feels like it's gone stagnant.

Since TextMate's last minor release, the Panic team has brought Coda to the table (after which 1.5 years have passed), and BBEdit has dropped two major versions since TextMate 1.0 was released.

It's gone too long since a major (or minor) release.

Although Allan is in fact just one man working on this software (vs. a team of n-many that BareBones probably has), there's something nonetheless to be said about remaining competitive.

Unfortunately, it's starting to feel like nothing is going on here, while the other two attractive competitors keep innovating.

The whole "translucency everywhere" thing has to go... I understand if you love it, but -- honestly -- you need to at least make that a checkbox toggle preference.... I believe you'll hear most people find it distracting.

You might be able to get by with leaving shorter-lived panels (levels, etc) implemented in that fashion, but the toolbar palette is just annoying... as well as color swatches, brushes, and other more long-lived windoids; make 'em all solid like the color palette, please.

The toolbar palette icons, on the other hand, are well-handled. I appreciate the use of scaling animations to indicate the active icon. That is a much more successful application of Core* eye candy.

As far as being a "UI for CoreImage" is concerned, I think that's actually a compliment... You sorta want to be able to say something suitably similar for every application on your computer.

It's a sign that the developer of an application is really making it a Mac application.

You basically *want* applications that aspire to be serious media editors to be written atop the APIs Cupertino engineers maintain and optimize... Coz they've been maintaining a great track record of progression and optimizations with *every* *single* *release* since OS X started shipping.

Ultimately, however, Pixelmator is an app worth watching, but isn't ready for daily use just yet.

Download link doesn't work... really got my hopes up, too.

Oops, sorry I was a little vague... what I meant is that it simply shouldn't be a drawer -- should be more like the sidebar in mail.

Main problem with the drawer is that there's no way to show/hide it and keep the window completely maximized -- at some point, the window will have to be resized manually (with the mouse).

Thanks for including a link to the dlta version, directly on the product page! Not sure when you started that practice, but this is the first time I noticed it.

Not to mention it's a fantastic theme; thanks!

I have loads of work to do, and no time to do it all, so I'm going to have to keep this rather short. X-Chat Aqua is *the best* IRC applicaton for OS X... one might even be tempted to argue that it's the best in the world.

While I wouldn't call it your grandmother's IRC client -- haha... sorry, funny image -- however, if you actually know IRC, you'll need less than a day with this program to arrive at this conclusion for yourself.

The bottom line is that, as of Jan 2006, there is simply no better IRC client available for OS X than this one.

Please axe the project drawer. Apart from that, it's the best editor (that requires a Window Server) ever.

... Ever.
