HomePage

This page is dedicated to common requests. So before requesting something, please see if it has not already been requested.

It is NOT a page where you should add your own requests. That could easily render the list less useful, as the longer the list, the less likely people are to read it.

If you feel something is missing from this list, mention it in the ##textmate IRC channel (at <http://freenode.net>), on the mailing list or, as a last resort, send a letter to tm-feedback (at this domain).
