el-get reaches 1.0

October, 07 2010

It's been a week since the last commits in the el-get repository, and those were all about fixing and adding recipes, and about notifications. Nothing like core plumbing you see. Also, 0.9 was released on 2010-08-24 and felt pretty complete already, then received lots of improvements. It's high time to cross the line and call it 1.0!


Yes, that's another el-get related entry. It seems to take a lot of my attention these days. After having setup the git repository so that you can update el-get from within itself (so that it's self-contained), the next logical step is providing recipes.


Thanks to you readers of Planet Emacsen taking the time to try those pieces of emacs lisp found in my blog, and also the time to comment on them, some bugs have been fixed, and new releases appeared.


Some emacs nifties

First, here's a way to insert at current position the last message printed into the minibuffer... well not exactly, in *Messages* buffer in fact. I was tired of doing it myself after invoking, e.g., M-x emacs-version.
