The latest version available is Atom 0.190.0, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:
- There is now an application:add-project-folder command to add a project folder to the current window. It is bound to Cmd-Shift-O on Mac and Ctrl-Alt-O on Linux and Windows. You can also access it from the File menu
- You can now launch Atom in 1.0 API preview mode. Run atom with the -1 or –one command line flag to start Atom with all the deprecated APIs removed. This is a great way to test if your packages are 1.0 compatible before 1.0 is released. You can also launch a window in API preview mode using the application:open-api-preview command available from the command palette.
- Fixed a regression where the cursor position was not being restored after undo in some cases
- Fixed a regression on Linux where using the clipboard would crash Atom
- One UI themes got variable font size, color improvements, framed editor and a themed markdown-preview
- Fixed an issue where the initial ~/.atom/config.cson file could be corrupted on the very first launch of Atom
