Atom 1.13 Changes & New features

- Reopen Project – Want to get Atom back to a previous state without figuring out the command line incantation? There’s now a Reopen Project menu item, palette command, and API.
- New Octicons – A new version of the Octicons is now bundled in Atom with improvements to line-weight and sizing normalization. In addition 20 new icons are available.
