V4 !?! LOL V3 isn't even completed yet! Wouldn't "complete" be the stable version and dev version being the same release number?
So if Sublime 3 is falling to the way side... I understand why you have lost interest on the premise that Sublime's goal is to be light weight, what about all the bugs that still get reported here in the forums? I guess close to perfect is all it will ever get? Sorry, one of the main reasons I made the move to Sublime was because it was actively being supported and developed. I believe there is always room or place for improvement.
Are there really that many people having to merge files...???
