What's New in Sprint 26
- Easier extension updating: When installing a newer version of an extension you already have installed, Brackets will automatically replace the older version.
- Delete file/folder improvements: Better handling of unsaved changes.
- Status bar redesign: New visual design, updated JSLint validation status icons.
- Upgrade Brackets source to jQuery 2.0, Bootstrap 2.3.1, LESS 1.3.3: From jQuery 1.7, Bootstrap 1.4.0, LESS 1.3.0
- CSS URL Hints - In
url()notation of an @import or property value, code hints will show relative paths to files in your project.
- CSS URL Hints - In
Status bar - Visual design, layout and typography changes. Extensions that use status bar indicators (via
updateIndicator methods) do not require any modifications.
OK/Cancel Dialog Buttons on Windows - OK and Cancel buttons in dialogs now display in the correct order. Previously the order was reversed.
Dialog API changes - The following changes were made to the Dialog API:
showModalDialognow receives an additional parameter: buttons. Buttons is a an array that contains for each button a class name, an id and a text. If omitted, the dialog will be created with an OK button that will close the dialog when clicked. Additionally,
showModalDialogwill always creates a new dialog element from a default template using the given class name, title, message and buttons. Instead of adding a dialog template to the DOM and using
showModalDialogto show the dialog, use
showModalDialogUsingTemplatewith the parsed template as a parameter.
The title and message parameters from
showModalDialogUsingTemplatenow return a Dialog object with 4 methods:
getElementthat returns the dialog jQuery object;
getPromisethat returns the promise used by the dialog (previously returned by both methods);
closethat can be used to close the dialog; and
doneto attach a done function to the dialog's promise as before. Notice that the promise is never rejected and is resolved when the dialog is dismissed, so the always and fail methods on the promise aren't required.
jQuery API changes - jQuery's 1.8 release notes and the 1.9 upgrade guide cover the API changes of our upgrade from 1.7 to 2.0. The list below highlights some major changes that we experienced during our upgrade:
- CSS position properties like
$foo.css("left")always return pixel values. If you want percentage, use

New/Improved Extensibility APIs
- 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.
#3458: Quick View does not yet support the latest CSS gradient syntax (using
- #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. (https://github.com/adobe/brackets/wiki/How-to-Hack-on-Brackets#wiki-getcode) instead.
- #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).
- 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.
