I’m concerned about significant changes to Atom 1.6, and how they might effect existing plugins.
I developed a React based plugin (CodeRoad) within a side-panel. It works fine in 1.5, but it is currently unusable with 1.6-beta.
The underlying issue is an inability to scroll, and automatic scrolling effecting the workspace as well. See this issue. Note:
overflow: scroll is set, but has no effect, and scroll targets cause the workspace to move as well.
While I’m happy to see block decorations coming to Atom 1.6, changes should not effect views outside of the active text editor. Side panels should continue to have separate distinct views for obvious reasons.
If you’re having any similar issues, or can offer a fix for 1.6, please share.
