It’s been six years since Emacs 21 was relased. While I was at BarCamp San Diego today, the long-awaited Emacs 22.1 came out. In fact, I’m writing this post in
GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (i386-apple-darwin8.9.1, Carbon Version 1.6.0) of 2007-06-03 on arya.local
Yay! I’ve been using builds from CVS for so long that it’s a little weird to be using an actually released Emacs again.
