The latest version available is Atom 0.141.0, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:
- You can now change the file’s encoding from the status bar or by using Ctrl-Shift-U.
- apm install is now faster due to more aggressive caching of native libraries.
- Fixed an issue where Atom would fail to launch when using a custom resourcePath in non-dev mode.
- Fixed an issue in the Settings view where disabled core packages wouldn’t be listed in the menu on the left.
