Force.com IDE on OS X crashes constantly on 10.8.2
I've followed various tips, from editing the forceide.ini file to upgrading (version 24). Every time, as in over a dozen attempts, I try to refresh or subscribe to my custom objects, by navigating to project -> properties -> Project Contents, the IDE fails tc complete the task and crashes. The only way I can refresh custom objects is to delete the entire project and reinitialize it.
Other problems include memory leaks, unresponsive interface components and constant authentication requests.
I'm not having problems with the windows version of Forceide. To be fair, it's possible that I have problems with my Mac's RAM and will try again after I install new memory. At the same time, people have written forum posts about all of my issues on OS X and none of my other applications are crashing.
I'd be much happier using Textmate just because of the Forceide's memory usage alone. Is there a bundle under active development?
