Version number on download page


The only way I can tell if there is a new version of atom to download is by checking the documentation at If the version number has been increased, there is an ok chance that the download on the site has been updated.

Can we get a version number on around the download button? Or is there a better way to keep informed about updates?

(The same goes with the filename that is downloaded. should include the version number)



You can check the latest version and changelog here


I believe Atom should let you know with an icon on the right of the status bar… At least that’s how I knew that there was an update available today.


Thanks for the info. There seems to be a new ‘Check for Update’ in the Atom menu at the top.


The Atom team is also now publishing a canonical changelog here.
