    :atom: The hackable text editor

    In fact, the "official fork" did not receive any new commit since that time, while we are working really hard to make everything work out - we already have the old API (that was not open-source) hosted with all the original packages minus the SPAM that is plaguing, we already have bumped Electron to version 12 (Atom was stuck on 9), we already have a binary version for Windows, Linux (RPM and DEB), and Mac (Silicon and Intel), and now we're studying a way to migrate to Electron 13 and beyond.
