Other noteworthy features in the Atom 1.9 stable release are enhancements to the saving of files operation, which promises to minimize further the risk of losing your projects, the latest Electron 0.37.8 open-source framework from GitHub, as well as support for Cygwin and MSYS/MinGW Linux-like environments for the shell commands.
