What's New in Release 1.2

Full change logs: brackets and brackets-shell

UI Changes

Split View - The editor pane that is inactive is no longer dimmed. To restore the dimming behavior, install the Zen Pane extension.

API Changes

jQuery - Upgraded from 2.1.1 to 2.1.3

Event listeners - Deprecation warnings occur when extensions use $().on()/off() on Brackets core modules and model objects. Call .on()/off() directly instead, as introduced in Brackets 1.1. (For DOM elements, continue to use jQuery events).

New/Improved Extensibility APIs

Colors - Use ColorUtils.COLOR_NAMES for a list of standard CSS/SVG named colors.

Known Issues

  • 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

  • Highly recommended: rebuild or reinstall an updated brackets-shell (no critical updates, but there are significant bug fixes and new features).
  • Some submodules were updated this sprint. Run git submodule update to ensure your source tree is fully up to date.
