Emacs 23?


Is there a reason why Emacs 23 isn't to be found in -current, even though it's been available for around six months?

In the past, Slackware updates seem to catch up with the Emacs updates. If you want Emacs 23, src2pkg compiles it very nicely. For that matter, just go to the Slackware sources and modify the SlackBuild script used to compile Emacs 22.

I compiled and tested Emacs 23 on Slackware64_13 (stable), but there are some oddities about how 23 displays the buffer list (C-x-b) in a text console that I don't like. Until I get that squared away, I'm going to stick with Emacs 22.

Regards,

Hehehe, I do too, at least for editing. But I can't give up my org-mode, or a few other features.

Yes, that's right. I use Emacs for pretty much everything except for its intended function.

Update: Emacs 23.1 is in -current.

I've still got a vexing problem with Emacs 23, but overall this is good news.

Actually it's Emacs 23.1 64bit in slackware.oregonstate.edu -current

ftp://slackware.oregonstate.edu/pub/...1-x86_64-1.txz
Emacs-23.1-x86_64-1.txz

Yet, it's correct on ftp.slackware.com -current.
