The latest version of Atom has been released with integration with Git and Github added directly in Atom via the Github package. This is a new core package included with Atom and is available right now.
The GitHub package adds a dock item and status bar widgets to the Atom UI, giving you access to some of the most common Git operations without leaving Atom. It allows you to stage changes and create commits, create and switch branches, and even resolve merge conflicts directly in Atom’s UI.
The GitHub package also displays the pull request associated with your current branch in the sidebar when you issue a pull request, and can display a detailed view of any issue or pull request alongside your code.
Other improvements to the new version include the ability to correctly launch Atom from the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Tokenizing performance has been improved via oniguruma caching. Oniguruma is a regular expression engine that Ultraviolet uses to parse text.
Atom now has an option that you can set to always restore the previous session on a restart, as well as new settings for showing context in find and replace operations; and finally the autocomplete offers better suggestions.
