Why couldn't I change the theme of 4coder on Windows 10 (using demo)? I was using the older version on Linux and could change the theme.

Edit: From https://github.com/4coder-editor/4coder/issues/101, I read I need the super version to fix this. I am going to buy it anyway (wanted to wait for Linux build). I guess this purchase includes all 4.x versions?


Yes purchasing 4.1.x gets all 4.1.x releases (4.0.x had 30 releases and lasted about four years, to give you an idea of how it adds up).

Also the theme changing bug is fixed in 4.1.1.


what's the ETA of Mac and Linux versions ?


Hopefully early 2020. Work has already begun on these.

Using vim on Windows is not convenient because my setup is not cross-platorm and terminals on windows are very slow. 4coder is something new and I'm happy to support it's development.


As soon as the linux version is available, my money is available to you! ;D
Best present I've got this week by far!


This release is my highlight of the week. Thank you very much. You are making my world a little bit better.
