The latest version available is Atom 0.135.0, which has been released a while ago, coming with important changes:
- Fixed an issue where the Marker class would log errors about a missing deprecate function.
- Atom now ships with libgit2 version 0.21.1.
- Fixed an issue where using Atom as a Git commit editor or EDITOR for other applications would not work.
- Fixed an issue where context submenus stopped working with the legacy submenu format. Updated the docs to the new format.
