Emacs 22.1


We desperately need somebody to pry Emacs from the fingers of the programmers and release it.

David Kastrup, about 6 weeks ago

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.

Here’s a grautitous screenshot:
