Yeah. Every so often, I think, "hmm, I wonder if there's a new version of atom", and because for some reason there's no official atom package in the debian distro manager, I have to check on my own. I head over to atom.io, remember that there's nothing on that page, and then click the documentation link, which for some reason shows the current version.
Ideally, of course, having the linux version auto-update would be ideal. If nothing else though, putting the current version near the download buttons on the top-level atom.io page would be rad.
