What's New in Sprint 24

Full change logs: brackets and brackets-shell

UI Changes

Go to Definition renamed to Quick Find Definition - This helps to distinguish it more clearly from the new "Jump to Definition" command:

  • Jump to Definition - searches across all files based on the identifier at the cursor position.
  • Quick Find Definition - searches within the current file for the identifier you type in the quick search bar.

Project panel / folder tree - In addition to the aesthetic changes, "Project Settings..." has been removed from the recent projects dropdown menu. It remains accessible via the File menu. For more on the design direction Brackets is headed in, take look at this mockup.

Install Extension shortcuts - New toolbar icon provides quicker access to the Install Extension command, and the Install Extension dialog box contains a link to the extensions listing page.

API Changes

No known breaking changes to existing APIs.

New/Improved Extensibility APIs

Quick Docs - To register an additional inline docs provider, use EditorManager.registerInlineDocsProvider(). Similar to inline editors (Quick Edit), Quick Docs providers are "winner take all": if two providers are both willing to respond for a given cursor position, the first one registered is shown and the other is completely ignored. To be a good citizen, your provider should be as narrowly tailored as is reasonably possible.

Known Issues

  • #3709: Using JavaScript code hints inside inline editors can lead to code getting inserted twice in the document.
  • #3458: Quick View does not yet support the latest CSS gradient syntax (using to keyword, unprefixed radial-gradient, repeating-linear-gradient or repeating-radial-gradient).
  • #3207: If you use a Sprint 21 or earlier build after using this build at least once, a few preferences such as Recent Projects may get reset. (You can back up your cache folder if you're concerned about this).
  • 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.
  • #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.
  • #3570: Mac only - Quick View popover may not appear after resizing window or going fullscreen. Move the mouse to the top of the screen to fix.
