Atom 1.33: Now with built-in Rust [syntax highlighting / code folding] support


From the blog, here. I’ve been using the beta for a while, and the new TreeSitter syntax highlighting has increased the responsiveness of the editor quite a bit. The new default syntax highlighting for Rust is the best I’ve seen so far.


This is exciting! Atom is still my preferred editor (because of its extensibility). I’ve become accustomed to the highlighting provided by atom-language-rust, but I’m looking forward to trying out the new tree-sitter.
