TextMate 2 has been released on GitHub
Allan Odgaard has announced the release of his text editor app for OS X TextMate on GitHub.
It has been released under the GPL 3 license.
He said in a blog post about the decision to release the app in open source:
The choice of license is GPL 3. This is partly to avoid a closed source fork and partly because the hacker in me wants all software to be free (as in speech), so in a time where our platform vendor is taking steps to limit our freedom, this is my small attempt of countering such trend. I am also a pragmatist and realize that parts of the TextMate code base is useful for other (non-free) applications, so I may later move to a less restrictive license, as is currently the case with the bundles. For now, please get in touch with us if there are subsets of the code base you wish to use for non-free software, and we might be able to work something out.
