In 2021, Zettlr will be including Pandoc by default so you don't have to install it separately anymore. However, doing so also requires another change: We'll be discontinuing support for 32 bit in the coming year. That means that you won't be able to run Zettlr on 32 bit operating systems and should upgrade if you want to continue using Zettlr. Additionally, we are planning to support Apple's new M1 chip natively.
