I have been using version 3.4.1 which, without my doing anything special, was in Dark mode. (and yes Dark Mode is enabled in my Mac's system preferences)

Now, after upgrading to 3.4.2, the Dark mode is gone, and I don't see how to re-enable it.

I'm on MacOS Catalina (10.15.6)

Please someone let me know how to re-enable Dark Mode.

Note: I tried to completely uninstall/reinstall but no luck. Even tried to go back to 3.4.1 but the Dark mode is no longer enabled...

Thanks! The link you provided got me to Version 3.5.0rc0-xxxx. I installed it and , yay, Dark Mode is back!

Dark Mode is back!

...and a bunch of other changes that 1) might be buggy and 2) aren't going to be in 3.4.3 are also there.

That page also gets you to version 3.4.3rc0-xxxx, which is closer to what 3.4.3 will be. That may be what you want now. Version 3.5.0rc0-xxxx won't come out as 3.6.0 (yes, 3.6.0) for a while; 3.4.3 is currently targeted for 2021-01-28, but 3.4.3 will probably not come out until later in 2021.

And there's less of a guarantee that 3.6.0, when it comes out, will look like the current 3.5.0rc0-xxxx than there is that 3.4.3, when it comes out, will look like the current 3.4.3rc0-xxxx.
