Atom 1.0 released: http://blog.atom.io/2015/06/25/atom-1-0.html

The official Atom download page only offers 64bit binaries (deb and rpm) for Linux but you can use the WebUpd8 Atom PPA to install the latest Atom in Ubuntu / Linux Mint on both 32bit and 64bit: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/05/install-atom-text-editor-in-ubuntu-via-ppa.html
At GitHub, we’re building the text editor we’ve always wanted: hackable to the core, but approachable on the first day without ever touching a config file. We can’t wait to see what you build with it.

This feature has been long missed. Developer's excuse for not integrating it in software itself is brain dead. That said, benefit of 2-step verification is huge, it also means per-application passwords are generated so I don't worry about people developing Pidgin getting anymore genius ideas.

For more details on how Pidgin sucks at security and why they consciously keep sucking at it read this: https://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/PlainTextPasswords

These aren't work arounds.  They are predicated on a working Windows 8.  Often we need to access a win8 partition because win8 is failing to boot.  That's the type of work around I was expecting from this article. It doesn't help to mount in r/o mode unless you are just after file recovery.

Try again.
