Discontinuing 32 bit

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.

Selling Trust

Selling Trust

Behind the scenes the internet is a giant trust-machine. To separate the good from the bad websites, the useful from the harmful software, an entire industry has been established that specialises in selling small text files to individuals and organizations so that they can sign their digital products. Operating systems are complicit in this, as they force people to buy and use such certificates.

Continuous Cross-Platform Deployment with GitHub Actions

Continuous Integration can sometimes be puzzling, so this is my take at continuous deployment of Zettlr. I'll explain GitHub Actions (and, on a more abstract level, the concepts behind CI) using a real-world, working GitHub Actions workflow.
