Latest Atom update blowing up numerous packages?


after updating earlier today to 1.9.0 several of my installed packages are throwing errors.

curious if anyone else is having issues too?


Well I use the beta version and couldn’t open it unless I opened the stable version first.


anything mercurial related is toast. I use HG and on my macbook atom-hg as well as nuclide quit working


They have removed the GitRepositoryAsync API in the latest version. It’s probably related to that as, apparently, some packages where using it.

You can read about it in this Atom Blog entry: Atom 1.9 release


sergiouve has this right. I apologize that we had to do this! Unfortunately the nodegit package backing this API was too unstable and we felt we had no other choice.
