Brackets 1.2 Open Source Code Editor released

Brackets 1.2 has just been released and this release has a bunch of really fantastic features that users have been asking for for a while. A notable new feature in the UI is the Split View – The editor pane that is inactive is no longer dimmed. To restore the dimming behavior, install the Zen Pane extension.
