This week there were 8 new Extension and 23 updates. This includes themes and other extensions.

As usual a busy week for the Brackets team. We are currently working on Release 0.44 that should be available by the end of the September. We are happy to add lots of new features, bug-fixes and improvements to this Release. We are finalizing the work on the new file tree. Since the team had some time to work with the split view feature, we are softening the edges around this great feature. We want to have it ready to give a great first impression. So stay tuned. It’ll be exciting!

If you don’t have the latest Brackets Release 0.43, get it from Let the team know what you think.
