GitHub’s Atom 1.6 Hackable Text Editor Comes Bundled with NodeGit, New API

Prominent features of Atom 1.6 include the ability to see the contents of a file without the need of opening it in a dedicated tab (check out the first gif below for a preview), a significant amount of improvements to the multi-pane API, as well as support for inserting DOM nodes in between lines thanks to block decorations. Atom now comes bundled with NodeGit, the native node bindings to Git, the world’s most popular source code management system, and there’s a new top and bottom bar API that lets package authors add a user interface that spans the entire width of the software.
