Atom 1.15 Hackable Text Editor Retains Tabs of Deleted Files, Requires Node 6

Atom 1.15 is the monthly release of the hackable editor developed by GitHub, which means that it’s packed with various improvements and bug fixes. Since last month’s Atom 1.14 release, when Atom 1.15 entered Beta stages of development, the devs managed to improve the behavior when duplicating lines with multiple selections. At the request of many users, Atom 1.15 also come with the ability to keep open the tab of any new, modified or deleted file from outside the editor. This feature is enabled by default now, but you can deactivate it from the settings. Cursors are now always visible by default in the editor, opening of minified files works better, and Node 6 is required for building Atom.
