|Atom Asks About Telemetry|

An updated version of Atom has been released just five weeks after Atom 1.10 was released. Atom 1.11 offers a number of improvements to the text editor.
The latest version has performance and stability improvements. Once nice touch is that Atom now asks for permission before sending any telemetry data. When you use it for the first time, you're shown a screen asking for your assistance in improving Atom by allowing the developers to collect anonymous usage information while you use Atom. However, if you'd rather not, you can choose not to share your telemetry data.
The image-view package in Atom has also been improved. Image View tabs that are in the pending state can now be confirmed by double-clicking the tabs, and the status bar now shows the size in bytes of the image as well as the width and height.
The other main change is an option to display a custom title bar on macOS Sierra platforms. This will adapt to the system theme, and be 'less jarring' when a dark theme is used, according to the developers.
As is traditional with Atom, the beta of Atom 1.12 was announced alongside the release of Atom 1.11. This adds international keyboard support, updates to Electron 1.3.6, and improves Keybinding usability.
