Robotframework libs got no Keywords in Eclipse/RED editor

Hello Experts,
Please help solve below issue.

I recently updated some of my Robotframework libraries and not sure what has happened, but my eclipse - RED setup seems broken.

Issue: Robotframework keywords no longer recognized as import library with in my project got no keywords.
versions
Pythoin Version 3.8.5
Robotframework 4

Tried 1. updating RED.xml with path of the lib, though it is recognizing the lib, but not downloading any of the keywords. each subfolder has zero entries. you can referer to the below screenhsot.

When I double lick on any of the sub folder got getting below error.

Hi,

You get this, because RED does not support RF4 yet.
You can follow this ticket RED doesn't find Builtin-Libraries with RobotFramework 4.0b1 · Issue #413 · nokia/RED · GitHub
