How to disable anti-aliasing in TextMate 2

I received an email from Allan Odgaard pointing out that if you are using TextMate 1.x under OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) some bundle items will fail due to ruby 2.0 now being the default.

So I decided to give TextMate 2.0 another go - but the “disable anti-aliasing” option is no longer available in the preferences.

Call me an old git, but I like to code in Monaco 10pt (anti-aliased). I haven't quite got used to Menlo yet…

Horace provides the command line to use to disable anti-aliasing:

defaults write com.macromates.TextMate.preview disableAntiAlias -bool YES

Et voilà :)
