Short term, this version is on minimal maintenance. 

Long term, Glyph is currently being completely re-written as a modern, fast, cross-platform IDE with an all-new UX and adaptability for both smaller and larger projects. 

However, since Zexsoft currently has many projects in development at the moment, Glyph is unfortunately not our the highest priority. We'd love the hear some feedback from you though, if you have any ideas!
