> Is there going to be a new release of MicroEmacs? Looking, it seems the last release was in 2006?
There will be when we get some time. At the moment we do not have that
much time to do it, a release cycle will typically take us 1-2 months
and neither of us have that much time available at the moment. Sounds a
little lame because it has been 3 years, but have been busy for 3 years!
We dropped a development snapshot here some time ago:
which is mainly a few minor bug fixes and some extended features such as
built in grep and find (i.e. do not need external program) which is
pretty handy. There is nothing wrong with this release as far as we know
and is solid. There is a pre-built windows binary, source and the macros.
The only thing that is preventing us from making a new release is the
outstanding documentation items. As soon as we find time to bring the
documentation up to date then we will be able to make a new release and
issue. Maybe we should not be so strict as to require that the
documentation should match the release; but that is just the way that we
are and until everything is fully consistent then we will not make that
So by all means move over to the development binaries/source it is
stable for everyday use (and is what we are using).
