What's New in Release 1.0

Full change logs: brackets and brackets-shell

UI/Behavior Changes

Max file size - For performance and stability, files larger than 16 MB will not be opened by Brackets.

API Changes

Version numbering - While previous releases of Brackets used version numbers like "0.XX", this release is numbered "1.0" and the next release (due out within a month) will be "1.1".

Deprecated APIs removed - The following APIs, which had been deprecated for some time already, have been removed:

  • CollectionUtils module
  • StringUtils.htmlEscape()
  • FileUtils.canonicalizeFolderPath()
  • ProjectManager.isBinaryFile()
  • CSSAgent.getStylesheetURLs() & CSSDocument.getStyleSheetFromBrowser()
  • Command ids EDIT_FIND*, EDIT_ADD_NEXT_MATCH, EDIT_SKIP_CURRENT_MATCH, EDIT_REPLACE
  • Menu section ids EDIT_FIND_COMMANDS, EDIT_REPLACE_COMMANDS

Bugs have already been filed with all extensions that are believed to be using these APIs.

New/Improved Extensibility APIs

Themes - Themes no longer need to include a dummy 'main.js' file. Theme authors may wish to continue including this file in the short term for compatibility with Brackets 0.44, however.

Prepackaged extensions - Distributions of Brackets can now include extensions that will be auto-installed in the user extensions folder on first launch. Place extension .zip packages in a folder named auto-install-extensions next to the www folder. Users can update & uninstall these extensions individually just like regular user-installed extensions.

Known Issues

  • 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.
  • 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

  • Recommended: rebuild or reinstall an updated brackets-shell (new functionality was added).
  • Some submodules were updated this sprint. Run git submodule update to ensure your source tree is fully up to date.
