F4 v1.1.6 on GitHub


Main Features

F4 v1.1.6 main updates:

  • Dark Mode - now fully enabled! (I know you've ALL been waiting for this one!)
  • Internal Fantom compiler updated to Fantom 1.0.76 (from 1.0.74)
  • Embedded Fantom interpretter updated to Fantom 1.0.76 (from 1.0.74)

This update adds a Default option to the Fantom Syntax Coloring settings, allowing the colour of ALL the text in Fantom editors to be updated.

The default eclipse colours for Dark Mode are pretty poor, but are easy enough to change. For example, my own colours are based on the EMACS Doom Vibrant Theme:
