Moreover, MQL4 (which actually also includes MQL5, since both languages are treated as one MQL4 language by the index authors) has moved up to No. 41 in the TIOBE's language popularity index: http://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/

This is great news. I've used GitHub for version control of my R code for quite a while. It will be good to use this system to keep track of the changes I make to my EA code.

Are there any plans to integrate GitHub (or generic Git) functionality into the MetaEditor for version control (such as for example, similar to the way it is available in Microsoft Visual Studio)?

I would prefer the compiler and debugger to be better documented so that it could be integrated in other editors easily... when compared to sublime text, meta editor still needs a lot of improvement.

I never quite understood the integration of Source control with dev environments. I always prefer to use the source control system to control stuff, especially when working with branches and merges etc

But there again I also used to like using vi on massive C++ codebases, so maybe I'm a bit weird and not the average user
