Brackets 32 is online and ready for download. This release is largely an architectural one, but we still managed to sneak in a few improvements. Everyone should notice an enhanced user experience for Live Development and Quick Edit. Extension developers will be happy to find we upgraded Brackets to Node 0.10.
Brackets 31 is big. It’s a release we have been working on for months, the result of countless hours of research, iteration and testing. We’re excited and proud to release Live Development for HTML — as you code, HTML changes are instantly pushed to browser without having to save or reload the page. Windows users will also find a significant UI update as Brackets embraces its darker side. Improved support for SASS, more linting options and better search results round out the top features.
Open source is a meritocracy. Those who do the work, become leaders. In that sense, we’re thrilled to announce our latest Brackets committer, Lance Campbell. In the past 8 months, Lance has submitted over 40 pull requests to Brackets and created several extensions. As a committer, he’ll now be able to review and help others contribute to Brackets.
Brackets 30 is ready for download and includes significant improvements to search/replace and code intelligence. For those who love to live on the bleeding edge, Brackets 30 also include a preview of Live HTML development (but it’s disabled by default). In partnership with the community, we’ve made a progress on bringing our Linux builds closer to parity with Windows and OSX.

During sprint 29, the Brackets team focused on tracking down and solving performance issues related to our native desktop shell. Thankfully, the community continued to deliver incremental updates to Brackets search and replace and enhanced our desktop integration.

We have a new build of Brackets ready for your coding enjoyment. Brackets 28 includes a number of highly requested features from our backlog including a new mechanism for discovering community-built extensions and a new way to create new files. We’ve also addressed the crash issue some saw in Brackets 27.
Brackets isn’t just about hacking, it’s also about sharing. Within the first year of the project, over 100 extensions were created by the community. We quickly outgrew the wiki page listing and needed a better way to share and install extensions. Several months ago we began work on the brackets-registry project, a server application to register and share brackets extensions.
Aside from creating and open sourcing the brackets-registry, we also had to update how extensions are packaged and needed to implement several features within Brackets itself. We’ve been integrating towards this goal since Brackets 22, so it’s great to finally announce that Brackets 28+ allows you to browse and install community-built extensions.

Quality software often demands inflection and refactoring. We spent most of sprint 27 researching things like Live HTML Development and native drag and drop, but we managed to sneak in a core feature like “Save As…”. Unfortunately, we upgraded to a new version of our desktop shell that refuses to launch on OSX 10.6 and early versions of OSX 10.7 (lame).

Build 26 of Brackets is now available for download. This update includes a newly designed status bar, several updates to the extension manager and the ability to delete files and folders from project. Under the hood, the community drove a major effort to upgrade Brackets to jQuery 2.0.1, LESS 1.3.3 and Bootstrap 2.3.1. more

Brackets 25 (the “silver” release), is posted and ready for download. This release was primarily focused on fixing bugs, accepting pull requests and improving performance and stability. It’s a good old fashioned “Engineering” release to follow up Sprint 24 which was primarily feature driven. Of course, we along with the community still managed to add some user-facing features.
