    What's New May 2014

    This release has the updates from Brackets Sprint 35 through 38, featuring a number of new improvements:

    • Available now is the CSS Shapes Editor extension – create amazing, eye-catching textual designs by visually defining shapes in which your text flows across a page. For more information about what CSS Shapes is:
      • Installing the CSS Shapes Editor extension
        Open File > Extension Manager and click “Install from URL”, then paste in the extension’s install URL:
      • Install the official Chrome 34 or later
      • Launch Live Preview
      • In the Chrome window that is opened, follow this guide for instructions to enable Experimental Web Platform Features for Live Preview’s Chrome profile (this will not affect your normal Chrome user profile)
      • Close and re-launch Live Preview and you're all set! No need to repeat these steps the next time you launch Live Preview. For details on using the CSS Shapes Editor, check out this blog article.
    • Multiple cursors / multiple text selections – increase your code editing productivity with the ability to set multiple cursor positions or make multiple selection ranges so that you can more efficiently do bulk edits, like renaming or replacing text.
    • New and improved Find / Replace functionality – a streamlined, cleaner UI provides access to an updated and optimized Find, Find in Files, and Replace functionality, including incremental search and highlighting, case-sensitive and regular expression toggles, and the ability to exclude specific files and folders from search.
    • Preferences for your Projects – an overhauled preferences system allows you to customize preferences per project or file type.  For example, you can set different indentation when editing HTML vs Javascript files.
    • CSS, SCSS and LESS Improvements - LESS and SCSS files now offer code hints for CSS property names and values and support the Quick Docs feature for gaining instant access to documentation for CSS properties. For CSS, SCSS and LESS files, the transition timing function editor now also supports step functions.
    • Improved Live Development – on Mac, you no longer have to restart Chrome to use Live Preview. It will now open as a separate window isolated from your normal browser session.  Also, on both Mac and Windows platforms, we've also made a number of improvements to make Live Preview more reliable.
    • Improved Startup Performance – We worked on optimizing the startup time of Brackets by minifying most of the JavaScript code and by pre-compiling the LESS stylesheets.  This resulted in faster startup performance and a smaller application footprint.


    Known Issues

    • #4362: Slow startup of Edge Code and Live Preview on Windows due to Chrome proxy settings. See workaround
    • To use Edge Inspect with Edge Code the device and the computer running Edge Code must be on the same subnet. When they aren't, Edge Inspect on the device will show "Forbidden".
    • Not all Edge Web Fonts render correctly in all system languages.
    • "Brackets Code Folding" extension causes extremely slow typing in HTML files with this release. Track this extension bug for updates.
    • Activity Monitor in Mavericks (OS X 10.9) says the EdgeCode Helper process is "Not Responding" even when it's working normally (#5794). You can safely ignore this unless Edge Code is actually failing to respond when you click or type text.
    • #7127: With Chrome 34, using Live Preview will show a console error: "'CSS.getAllStyleSheets' wasn't found". This is harmless and shouldn't affect Live Preview.
