    Is Sublime Text still a better editor than VSCode? Both are fantastic but VSCode has some incredibly useful features

      "Better" is a tricky question to answer.

      IMO, SublimeText is far faster/snappier/smoother than both VSCode and Atom (which comes as no surprise with the latter two being Electron apps).

      It's still a little clunky from a customization standpoint (e.g., what do you mean I can't have two horizontally split panes next to a single vertical pane), and I think Atom + VSCode have better package ecosystems.

      I get tremendous joy out of running $ sublime . from my terminal and seeing the editor pop open instantly. I rage pretty hard when VSCode (occasionally) leaks memory to the point where I can't write any code...

      YMMV!

      ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      There's some really nice stuff that VSCode does right out of the box which keeps prodding me to make the switch. But every time I try I realise I don't want to spend a couple hours moving across all my snippets and keybindings I've built in to ST3 over the years.

      This new update is great btw. Loving the new icon too.

    Can someone share the new icon?

    Awesome, but I still prefer Atom

      clearly you don’t code much then. atom is the slowest editor of the last 40 years.

        Clearly you never used Borland Together to work on Java. That thing WAS the slowest editor I've ever used (though to be fair, it wasn't just an editor).

        In all fairness though, I think some people are too harsh on Atom. I use vim, ST3 and Atom, and I tend to gravitate towards Atom most of the time. On a fast enough machine I don't find it slow at all, it's very convenient and it has a lot of great plugins.

    Not being able to drag and drop files in sidepanel amazes me.

    It's been 2, 3 years since I last used ST (I've been using Atom and VSCode since).

    Yesterday I was working on a 50k line file in atom.Today I opened that same file in ST3 and cried...

    Bottom line: Don't underestimate the performance difference between ST3 and electron based editors, it does make for a fundamentally different coding experience

    There's some extremely decent stuff that VSCode does appropriate out of the case which continues pushing me to do the switch. Yet, every time I attempt I understand I would prefer not to spend two or three hours moving over every one of my pieces and keybindings I've worked in to ST3 throughout the years. Alka

    This new refresh is incredible btw. Adoring the new symbol as well.
