Software-update: Aquamacs 1.7

Het ontwikkelteam van Aquamacs Project heeft de krachtige en allround tekstverwerker Emacs onder handen genomen en een specifieke build voor Mac OS X ontwikkeld. Het programma heeft de naam Aquamacs meegekregen en heeft exact dezelfde functies en mogelijkheden als het origineel, maar de gebruikersinterface en het uiterlijk zijn volgens de Apple Human Interface Guidelines opgesteld. Aquamacs is een veelzijdige tekstverwerker en -bewerker. Zo kan het niet alleen gebruikt worden om teksten te schrijven, maar is het programma ook in staat om praktisch alle programmeer- en opmaaktalen weer te geven. De nieuwste versie van Aquamacs heeft versienummering 1.7 meegekregen en is te downloaden door op deze link te klikken. Welke veranderingen in Aquamacs 1.7 doorgevoerd zijn, kan hieronder worden gelezen:

Aquamacs is an Aqua-native build of the powerful Emacs text editor. By "Aqua-native," we mean more than just the fact that this version of Emacs runs as a standard OS X application.  Aquamacs features extensive customization: it will feel and behave mostly like an Aqua program - while still being a real GNU Emacs with all the ergonomy and extensibility you've come to expect from this world-class editor. It's beeen adapted by DavidReitter, based on GNU Emacs by Richard Stallman and many others. Aquamacs has been downloaded more than 200,000 times since we started keeping track.

Emacs is a text editor of legendary power and configurability, but it also has an enormously complex user interface. One advantage of it is: no matter what operating system you run Emacs on, you'll always get the same interface. The big problem: if you use a number of applications on your Mac, one of them is Emacs, you'll have to switch gears when you switch to Emacs.

Changes-- 1.7
  • Aquamacs now makes it easier for users to copy, cut and paste (and kill and yank) whole words, phrases or sentences by managing the spaces between words for them. Spaces are removed and automatically inserted where needed, whenever the new `smart-spacing-mode' is turned on. The Options menu provides a setting to turn it on automatically for all text-mode and related buffers. To set a default for all buffers, configure the option `global-smart-spacing-mode' using the customization interface.
  • A problem that caused error messages upon startup and, sometimes, a failure to quit for some users (and only if Aquamacs was installed for the first time) was fixed. Reported by William Triplett, Kevin Brubeck Unhammer and Jean-Christophe Helary.
  • Aquamacs now quits faster in some situations.
  • JDEE, the Java Development Environment for Emacs is no longer included in Aquamacs but provided as a point-and-click installer plugin, which can be downloaded from the Aquamacs website. This reduces the size of the Aquamacs distribution, while maintaining an easy way for Java programmers to install the package. Note that JDEE also includes CEDET.
  • Tabs showing a buffer that is mirrored in other windows will retain their position of point.
  • With soft wrapping on (Options menu), M-q now calls `unfill-paragraph-or-region', which has the same semantics as `fill-paragraph-or-region' for hard wrapped text.
  • C-z is no longer bound to minimize the frame. Users who require this feature can add the key binding in their Preferences.el file: (define-key osx-key-mode-map `[(control z)] 'iconify-or-deiconify-frame)(If you have bound C-z to something else using `global-set-key', note that the new `ignore' binding in `osx-key-mode-map' will shadow this. You need to use `define-key' as above.)
  • Cursor movement is no longer sluggish when multiple windows are visible. Generally, Aquamacs should feel faster. Reported by Drew Hess.
  • When clicking into an (unselected) window, Aquamacs no longer sets the mark and marks a region in the buffer in certain circumstances. Reported by Konrad Podczeck.
  • Resolved a problem where clicking in the fringe to set a breakpoint when using C-mode in conjunction with `gdb' (in the Emacs debugger) caused Aquamacs to crash. Reported by Eric Martin.
  • `gdb' and possibly other packages no longer fail to open certain additional `special display' windows. Reported by Eric Martin.
  • Aquamacs no longer opens additional windows when it opens files per drag&drop or as directed by another application (such as Finder), if these files are already shown in a buffer. Reported by Tim Hsu.
  • Aquamacs no longer de-minimizes frames (from the Dock) when opening new files while all its frames are hidden. Reported by Tim Hsu.
  • Documents printed or exported to HTML with soft word wrapping turned on will now also exhibit soft wrapping in HTML, and wrap as expected at the page boundary on printed pages. Reported by Enrico Indiogine.
  • OS X will now more reliably recognize the latest installed Aquamacs version in order to open documents.
  • Aquamacs now remembers more and longer undo steps (maximum undo memory and number of steps increased four-fold).
  • The ``dialog from hell'', asking users whether they want to save a file, or all, or none, or view the file or the differences, is now less ridiculous and has a Cancel button. Whether the dialog is shown or the minibuffer is used, Aquamacs always shows the buffer that is up for saving.
  • The command line tool (installed with the Tools menu) will now find Aquamacs whereever it is installed in the system. It will always use the latest Aquamacs Emacs that is known to the system. (As a side-effect, you cannot use the command in connection with ``sudo'' any longer. We recommend using Tramp.) Reported by Jean-Christophe Helary.
  • Bug reporting, and generally, sending e-mail, works now for users whose default Email client is Gmail. Gmail receives special treatment because of a bug on Google's server.
  • Charsets are given in HTML generated with ``Export to HTML''. Documents now validate as HTML 4.01 Strict.
  • A rare display problem was fixed in cases of vertically split windows, with fringes and scroll bars turned off. Reported by Rolf Hanson.
  • Autoface mode works better with major modes derived from other ones.
  • More key bindings are now shown correctly in the menus (e.g., Undo/Redo).
  • Python-mode updated to version 5.1.0. See also:
  • Haskell Mode updated to version 2.4. We also provide better integration of the mode (recognition of various file types). Maintained by Stefan Monnier.
  • Prolog Mode 1.18 included with vast improvements (and some pre-configuration for Aquamacs). Suggested by Kevin Brubeck Unhammer. Code by Stefan Bruda et al.
  • ACT-R major mode improved: it inherits `lisp-mode' key bindings now. .actr files are recognized automatically.
  • The Enhanced Carbon Emacs plugin is no longer loaded from ec-emacs directories, because it is incompatible with the latest Aquamacs versions.

Jawel hoor. Zie:
link naar apple human interfaces guidelines doet het niet?

Zo zou ie' het wel moeten doen.
