What's New in Release 0.43

Full change logs: brackets and brackets-shell

UI Changes

Keyboard shortcut changes

  • Replace in Files changed to Ctrl-Shift-H (Win) or Cmd-Alt-Shift-F (Mac), to parallel the single-file Replace shortcut better.
  • Show/Hide Sidebar changed to Ctrl-Alt-H (Win) or Cmd-Shift-H (Mac).

Linux: Edit menu - The Edit > Cut/Copy/Paste menu items are removed on Linux, because they did not work. These menu items will be restored once a native menu bar is implemented. Keyboard shortcuts for cut/copy/paste still work.

API Changes

Theme authoring - Simplified how Find/Replace highlight colors are set. Read more...

window.open() - Only permits 'file://' URLs and 'about:blank', since brackets-shell is not a secure general-purpose web browser. Use NativeApp.openURLInDefaultBrowser() to open webpages in the user's regular browser.

Known Issues

  • #9002: Brackets freezes during Live Preview if you place the cursor on a line within a CSS/SCSS/LESS block comment that contains nothing but "}" with no indent. (Will be fixed in next release).
  • #8966: Inline editor is blank if your CSS rule contains a vendor-prefixed property that uses an rgb()/rgba()/hsl()/hsla() color value. (Will be fixed in next release).
  • Activity Monitor in Mavericks (OS X 10.9) says the Brackets Helper process is "Not Responding" even when it's working normally (#5794). You can safely ignore this unless Brackets is actually failing to respond when you click or type text.
  • #2272: Windows Vista may not allow the Brackets installer to run (you may not see any error message). To work around this, right-click the installer file, choose Properties, and click the Unblock button.
  • Debug > Run Tests is disabled in the installer/DMG distributions of Brackets, because the unit test code is not included. To run unit tests, pull Brackets from GitHub instead.

Community contributions to Brackets

Pulling source code from Git

  • Rebuilding/updating brackets-shell is optional for this release (only change is one Mac-only bug fix).
  • Some submodules were updated this sprint. Run git submodule update to ensure your source tree is fully up to date.
