How to update to Atom 1.12


#1

Atom 1.12 has been out there since Nov. 9, http://blog.atom.io/2016/11/09/atom-1-12.html. I am running Atom 1.11.1 on Linux Mint. I don’t know what I have to do to upgrade?

Should I download the .deb package? I won’t lose the packages and settings?

Yes, you have to download the new package for your Linux flavor and install it. No, you won’t lose your packages or settings. You can find more information in the Atom Flight Manual:
