Sublime Merge "A New Version is available bug"


Every time I start Sublime Merge, the "A New Version is available " alert appears. Even when I just installed the latest version.

A minor annoyance, but annoying bug nonetheless.

My suggestions:

  • Make the message more informative: “A New Version is available. You are on version {yourVersion} but version {newVersion} is now available.” This would help diagnose/resolve this problem, as well as future unanticipated problems.
  • Fix the bug.


It sounds like the update process is failing on your machine. I would recommend removing and installing fresh.

Your preferences will be preserved since they are stored separate from the application files.



Remove sublime? Over my dead body!

Jk, how do I properly do such a thing? Is there a menu option? I’m on the latest Mac OS.



Open your Applications folder and drag Sublime Merge to the trash can. Then install fresh from

Thanks, will do. Also recommend improving the messaging (though that’s a nit)
