What's New in Release 1.4

  • Instant Search in Files: Searching across files is faster than ever. Results are now displayed incrementally and updated as you type.

  • Easier Preferences Editing: All preferences are now available as code hints while editing the brackets.json preferences file. Opening a preferences file (Debug-> Open Preferences file) will also open the default preferences in a second pane in split mode. This default preferences file will give hand on to user about the preferences and how to use and set values.

  • Disable Extensions Individually: Extensions can now be individually enabled/disabled from the Extension Manager. Here each extension which has been used will be provided with an option to enable, disable and remove extension from the Extension Manager.

  • Improved Text Rendering on Mac: Crisp text rendering on Mac with subpixel antialiasing enabled by default. You can use the older text rendering by setting the fonts.fontSmoothing preference to antialiased.

  • Greek and Cyrillic Character support: Updated editor font (Source Code Pro) with improved support for Greek and Cyrillic character sets.

  • Traverse files in List Order: Files opened in the working set can be traversed in the list order with CTRL+PageUp and CTRL+PageDown.

  • Localization

    • Translation updates for: Czech, German, Finnish, French, Japanese, Italian, Swedish

Full change logs: brackets and brackets-shell

UI Changes

To Traverse working set files in List order, two new options are added to Navigate menu :

  • Navigate-> Next Document in List
  • Navigate-> Previous Document in List

API Changes

PreferencesManager.definePreference was modified to support code hints.

New/Improved Extensibility APIs

  • PreferencesManager.getAllPreferences returns a clone of all the preferences defined.
  • CodeInspection.getProviderIDsForLanguage(languageId) returns names of linters registered for languageId.

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.
