GitHub Atom Project Will be Retired

The text editor I use is Atom from GitHub, but it looks like I’ll need to find a new one since.

From the GitHub blog

When we introduced Atom in 2011, we set out to give developers a text editor that was deeply customizable but also easy to use—one that made it possible for more people to build software. While that goal of growing the software creator community remains, we’ve decided to retire Atom in order to further our commitment to bringing fast and reliable software development to the cloud via Microsoft Visual Studio Code and GitHub Codespaces.

This move makes sense to me as GitHub focuses on the cloud with GitHub Codespaces.
