What's New in Sprint 32

Full change logs: brackets and brackets-shell

API Changes

Embedded Node server - Upgraded from 0.8 to 0.10. Migrated from node-unzip to decompress-zip. (Only affects extensions that use NodeConnection to run code on the Node server side).

Paths - FileUtils.getFilenameExtension() has been deprecated in favor of the new FileUtils.getFileExtension(). The old API may be removed in a near-future sprint.

New/Improved Extensibility APIs

Linting/inspection - Use CodeInspection.inspectFile() to headlessly (no UI updates) get linting results for any file.

Paths - New NativeFileSystem.isRelativePath() utility (given a string).

Known Issues

  • 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.
  • #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).
  • #4362: Slow startup of Brackets and Live Preview on Windows due to Chrome proxy settings. See workaround.
  • 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

  • It is now possible to build brackets-shell with XCode 5.
  • A new brackets-shell build is required for this sprint (due to the Node upgrade). Be sure to rerun grunt setup before building.
  • brackets-shell's Node dependencies have changed. Run npm install before rebuilding brackets-shell.
  • Some submodules were updated this sprint. Run git submodule update to ensure your source tree is fully up to date.
