A release date hasn’t been officially announced, but development builds of ST4 have been available in the Discord for a little over a year now. As development builds they’re currently only accessible to licensed users.

The 4 is because the next release is doing away with version numbers, so we generally refer to it as “Sublime Text 4” as a disambiguation, but that’s not really what it is. There are some license changes as well.

That’s outlined in the Discord by the developers; I also summarized it here as well (link takes you directly to the relevant part of the video):

You want the new stuff, but you don’t want to pay for it. Dream on!

Why is Sublime not free and opensource compared to Atom and VSCode? Couldn’t SublimeHQ use a thing where you pay for IT Support and a Sublime Text “PRO” Version

This has been discussed many times. Atom was bankrolled by github and is now pretty much dead, VSCode is bankrolled by Microsoft - neither of these have a business model so they’re not really comparable. A support business model works when you have a product that requires support and updates, which mostly applies to server software not general development tools. A pro version requires locking features behind a paywall which is worse than the current situation. There are already parts of Sublime Text that are open source, like the syntax definitions.
