Atom Text Editor Gets New Windows Features

by Developer.com Staff

GitHub's text editor also has better tab switching and crash recovery.

GitHub has released Atom 1.7, and the updated version of the text editor offers improvements for Windows developers. Specifically, it is now easier to build in Visual Studio, and it now supports the Appveyor CI continuous integration service for Windows.

Other new features include improved tab switching, tree view and crash recovery. GitHub noted, "Crashes are nobody's idea of fun, but in case Atom does crash on you, it periodically saves your editor state. After relaunching Atom after a crash, you should find all your work saved and ready to go."

GitHub has also released a beta preview of Atom 1.8.
