Install the latest release of Atom Text Editor on Linux Ubuntu Systems. Install Atom 1.23 Text Editor on Ubuntu 17.10, Ubuntu 17.04, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.04 and other Ubuntu Derivatives. Atom 1.23 Text Editor brings many usability improvements and performance boosters.
Atom 1.23 is now available on the stable channel and includes a new feature for packages to register URI handlers, the ability to register hidden commands, as well as editor performance improvements. Atom packages can track every text change that occurs in a particular text buffer using the TextBuffer.onDidChange method.
- URI Handling – Atom packages can now register a URI handler function that will be invoked any time the user visits a URI that starts with atom://package-name/.
- CommandRegistry improvements – When registering commands via atom.commands.add, you now have the option to hide specific commands in the command palette.
- Improved compatibility with external Git tools – The GitHub package no longer locks the index, making it easier to use the CLI or other Git tools with Atom open in the background.
