Sublime Text 4 - Coming Soon

#24

There hasn’t been a concrete date given by the developers. The general consensus as to a release date is “when it’s ready, it’ll be released”. But it might be soon now given the twitter announcement :crossed_fingers: .

Bad.
That puts off a lot of the people that would use ST.
I still find ST better than VS Code, but I cannot use sticks and ropes to work.

Hopefully, that will change.

Can I turn off “tab multi select”? Just because I want to select multi files to do something. Such as delete,upload,commit…

I don’t think there is currently a way to turn off tab multi selection.

You can disable "preview_on_click" for the side bar, but otherwise there’s no reason to disable tab-multiselect.

Is there a version for Big Sur specifically ? And if so which one?

Thank you

I don’t think there’s a version for Big Sur, specifically. If by Big Sur, you are metonymizing Apple’s ARM hardware, also no specific version. The latest v4 is a “universal binary” that will run amd64 on amd64 and ARM on ARM.

  1. Do we have a timeline?

  2. What about the license, if I have or just purchased ST3, do I need to buy new one for ST4.

  1. No timeline is given by the developers.
  2. If you have a ST3 license, then you can use that happily for ST4 as well. Depending on when it was purchased, there may or may not be an upgrade fee (Nothing has been told about that yet).

that mean one should wait for the release. cause From FAQ:

  • Upgrade Policy (Personal License)
    A license is valid for Sublime Text 3, and includes all point updates, as well as access to prior versions (e.g., Sublime Text 2). Future major versions, such as Sublime Text 4, will be a paid upgrade.If you have a license from 2012 or earlier, you can upgrade to a Sublime Text 3 license at a discounted rate.

The Sales FAQ Linked from the Buy Page for Sublime Text says:

UPGRADE POLICY
Personal licenses come with 3 years of updates. After 3 years, you’ll be able to continue to use the last version of Sublime Merge released within 3 years of purchase (in other words, licenses do not expire). Any versions released 3 years or more after the purchase date will require a paid upgrade to use.

Back in 2019, the license scheme for Sublime Text was changed to mirror that of Merge, which has no version numbers (and Sublime Text won’t either; we’re just all calling it Sublime Text 4 to avoid confusion).

Despite the apparent typo in the page mentioning Merge, licenses for Text are good for 3 years of updates. As such, any potential upgrade fee (which inded has not been announced) would presumably only be assessed on people that have licenses older than 3 years.

If you have a ST3 license, you can join the discord and download ST4 from there. As a development build, it’s currently only available to licensed users.

There’s a link to join the discord in the pinned forum topic on Resources and Bug Tracking.

Hop over to the Discord server: Sublime Text Discord Server. And then go to announcements. This is assuming you have a valid license. If not, add purchase a valid license to the steps :upside_down_face:.
