Downloads and Releases

We are constantly working on the editor and maintain both rolling and regular releases. You can find out more about the differences and download Pulsar on our downloads pageopen in new window and following the instructions.

App Updates

Currently Pulsar does not support automatic app updates. There are, however, automated notifications of new versions, which include links and instructions so you can easily get the new versions when they come out. (These notifications can be disabled if you wish.) Beyond that, new versions can be obtained via the Download links here on our website, or from our CI (continuous integration) pages as explained on our Download page.

One of our first and biggest tasks was to replace the closed source Atom.io package repository with our own so that users would still be able to download from the huge package ecosystem.

Searching and downloading from the package repositoryopen in new window is now fully supported, as is publishing/updating/deleting packages. If you experience any issues, please feel free to report this to the Pulsar Team.
