How To Install Atom 0.196.0 On 64 Bit (X86_64) On Fedora 22, Fedora 21 And CentOS 7 Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Atom is an open-source, multi-platform text editor developed by GitHub, having a simple and intuitive graphical user interface and a bunch of interesting features for writting: CSS, HTML, JavaScript and other web programming languages. Among others, it has support for macros, auto-completion a split screen feature and it integrates with the file manager.

The latest version available is Atom 0.196.0, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:

  • Fixed an issue where opening certain PHP files would freeze the editor
  • alt-0 through alt-9 now switch to the corresponding tab index on Windows
  • Fixed an issue where calls to certain deprecated APIs were not attributed to the correct package
  • Fixed an issue where creating a BufferedProcess would throw an error instead of emitting it in certain circumstances
  • Added the –profile-startup command line option to create a CPU profile for the startup of an Atom window
  • DejaVu Sans Mono is now the default editor font on Linux
  • Reseting the window’s font size now restores it to the value at startup instead of the default config value
  • The Fuzzy Finder now has a config option to preserve the search text across opens
  • The Fuzzy Finder now has a config option to search all panes before opening instead of just the active one
  • Fixed an issue on Linux and Windows where running certain apm commands failed with a Could not determine current Atom version installed message
  • Panes can now be resized by dragging and dropping their boundaries
  • Opening Atom without the command line (e.g. using the dock on OSX) now re-opens any previously opened windows
  • Atom now ships its main code bundle as an asar archive file. This makes installing, updating, and launching
  • Atom quicker by doing significantly fewer file reads and faster decompression
  • Fixed an issue where the fuzzy finder would fail to show files if the project contained a broken symlink
  • Fixed an issue where find and replace would fail to complete if the project contained a broken symlink
  • Added a custom notification when stylesheet errors prevent themes and packages from loading
  • Sped up parsing CSS selectors and calculating CSS selector specificity which should improve startup time
  • Sped up loading of bundled keymaps and system menus which should improve startup time
  • Fixed an issue where certain .less files would be synchronously compiled on the very first launch of Atom making it load significantly slower
  • The core.followSymlinks config setting now defaults to true
  • Fixed issues with bundled packages not working correctly in 1.0 API preview mode (atom –one)
  • 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
