Atom 0.208.0 Text Editor supports files larger than 2MB

Atom 0.208.0 recently released, is a hackable text editor for the 21st century, built on atom-shell. Like other desktop apps, Atom Text has its own icon in the dock, native menus and dialogs, and full access to the file system. It is used also as a n IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Atom is built with the same open source technologies used by modern web browsers. At the core of Atom is Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. With that comes all the power and innovation being developed for the web.


Atom 0.208.0 update

  • Atom now opens files larger than 2MB with syntax highlighting, soft wrap, and folds disabled. We’ll work on raising the limits with these features enabled moving forward
  • Double-clicking a file in the Tree View now makes it a permanent tab when using preview tabs
  • The Symbols View now automatically scrolls to the function in the editor as you move between functions in the list
  • Optimizations to editor rendering in 0.206.0 disabled sub-pixel anti-aliasing. It has been restored in this release.
