In the past when I have downloaded atom, I have just gone to atom.io and pressed the download button, and the site automatically detects the correct platform and the download begins. (this is what is detailed in the Atom Flight Manual)
Now, I have noticed that the button redirects me to github, leaving me to pick te correct version/platform myself.
Is this intended behavior, a bug, or is it something that happens when you sign up as a user here?
Why the change?
