Atom is a free, cross-platform, and open-source graphical software that has been designed to act as a hackable text editor and programmer's editor application that helps developer to write code without too much hassle.

Atom editor is build on the Electron framework, that lets developers create modern desktop apps using state-of-the-art Web technologies like HTML5, CSS, Node.js, and JavaScript.

The latest version of Atom editor is 1.14.0 and recently released with the list of the changes

Changelog in atom 1.14.0:

  • A fundamental component of the text editor called the display layer has been redesigned to rely on a new data structure that is implemented in C++. These changes enable Atom to open larger files more quickly while using much less memory. Improvements in this area are ongoing, so expect more in upcoming releases.
  • Atom 1.14 makes available a 64-bit installation for Windows.
MRU tab traversal:
  • There was some—lets call it pointed—feedback about our initial implementation of most-recently-used tab traversal that we’ve addressed in this release...
  • An MRU-ordered list of the tabs to visit now appears during MRU traversal.
  • There is an option in the tabs package settings to make ctrl-tab and ctrl-shift-tab do MRU or simple left/right traversal.
  • Fixed a bug in keyup handling such that the MRU order doesn’t appear to randomly change.
Other 1.14 improvements:
  • Overhaul of the bundled C# grammar
  • Upgrade find-and-replace to use new marker layer API for fast clearing of markers
  • Option for avoiding overlay movements
  • Reduce the impact of leaking Editor, Selection, & Cursor objects
