Atom 1.10 Hackable Text Editor Released with New Atom Package Manager Build

Atom 1.10 is here exactly 30 days after the launch of the Atom 1.9 and Atom 1.10 Beta builds on the first day of August 2016, and, as promised during the Beta stages of development, the biggest new feature of the Atom 1.10 stable release is the upgrade of the Atom Package Manager (APM) to run on Node 4.4.5 and npm 3.10.5. The new APM version has multiple benefits, starting with the minimalization of the package dependencies required to run Atom, which should solve many issues with path length restriction on Windows platforms, and continuing with much easier installation of packages when you’re behind a proxy server.
