Atom 1.7.0 Text Editor released

Atom 1.7.0 Text Editor 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 tothe 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.

A notable change in this release is the ctrl-tab will switch between the most recently used (MRU) tabs in an Atom window instead of switching to the tab to the right of the current tab.
