Parent article: Pre-testing Emacs 22
Since four year I am using emacs 22.*, compiling from CVS every week or
so. Not only was I impressed how stable it was, but how fast the
developers -- most notably RMS -- come up with fixes for bugs or
Things to check out:
o ido-mode lets you find files an buffers by typing a fraction of the
name (ido-mode t)
o focus follows mouse (setq mouse-autoselect-window t)
o parentheses matching (blink-matching-paren-on-screen t)
o working with compressed files (auto-compression-mode 1)
o open the filename in the buffer (autoload 'find-file-at-point "ffap"
o editing of remote files with Tramp mode which is now included
and of course external power tools like planner/muse, and the vm mailer.
