Today Adobe announced the 1.0 release of Brackets, the company’s open source text editor designed for developers who work with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

This update marks a milestone for Brackets and introduces a few new features: Adobe details on its blog that Brackets 1.0 now supports custom shortcut key combinations, “the ability to collapse Quick Edit results,” and introduces “more accurate” JavaScript hinting.

Alongside the update, Adobe announced a preview of a new extension today, dubbed “Extract for Brackets,” which enables developers to pull CSS styles from Photoshop files. Adobe claims the extension can accurately detect “design information like colors, fonts, and measurement info out of a PSD.” But, by calling it a “preview,” Adobe made it clear that this tool is far from perfect.
