What's New in Sprint 17

  • Live Preview
    • 'Live Highlight' from CSS code: While Live Preview is open, putting your cursor in a CSS rule in Brackets will highlight all matching HTML elements in the browser. Use "File > Live Highlight" to toggle this off.
    • JSP and ASP files are now recognized as HTML-like for Live Preview's local server support
  • Visual Editing
    • Inline color picker: Use Quick Edit anywhere a hex color, rgb() or hsl() appears to edit it inline. Includes shortcut swatches for other colors used in the file.
  • Code Editing
  • Search
    • Find in Files scoping: Search a specific subtree or even a single file: right-click in the folder tree and choose "Find in..."
  • Localization

UI Changes

No major changes to existing features.

API Changes

Resizable panels - Panel resizing and expand/collapse now emit a simpler, clearer set of events. See docs on Resizer for details.

New/Improved Extensibility APIs

InlineWidget - Inline widgets can provide a refresh() function (overriding the empty stub inherited from InlineWidget) to be notified when the code editor font size changes.

Known Issues

  • #1551: Changes within an extension (or a unit test) are not reflected by a simple "Debug > Reload Brackets." Workarounds:
    • Quit and re-launch Brackets to pick up the changes.
    • Open Developer Tools, click the gear icon in the lower-right, and select "Disable cache." This setting is remembered, but is only in effect so long as the Developer Tools browser tab remains open.
  • 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.
  • Debug > Show Developer Tools opens in a new tab in Chrome, rather than a new window in Brackets.
  • Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) by default will not allow Brackets to run since it's not digitally signed yet. To work around this, right click the Brackets app and choose Open. You only need to do that once -- afterward, launching Brackets the normal way will work also.
