0.200.0 (2016/10/02)

IMPORTANT: Breaking changes

  • The support for Emacs 24.3 has been dropped, Spacemacs needs at least Emacs 24.4 to work correctly.
  • extensions are deprecated as announced in previous release, if you still have extensions directories you must rename them to local and move the contents of the extensions.el files to the packages.el files adding the keyword :location local to them in the package list. Refer to other layers for examples (for instance the python layer)
  • <package>-excluded-packages variables are now deprecated as announced in previous release, you must now use the keyword :excluded t of the package list, see the vim-empty-lines layer for example.
  • Key binding SPC : acting as M-x as been replaced by SPC SPC. If you want to revert to the old SPC : key binding set the new variable dotspacemacs-emacs-command-key to “:”.
  • Key binding SPC f e h is now SPC h SPC
  • Key bindings to delete things are now more consistent and use the d key. We moved SPC w c and SPC w C to SPC w d and SPC w D.
  • Refactor SPC w and SPC b regarding deletion to clean redundant actions and bring more consistency between the two prefixes (see Distribution layer changes section in change log for more information)
  • SPC j prefix has been modified to include jump commands:
    • avy commands are now behind the prefix SPC j for jump:
      • SPC j j to jump to a character in the buffer (works as an evil motion)
      • SPC j l to jump to a line with avy (works as an evil motion)
      • SPC j w to jump to a word in the current buffer (works as an evil motion)
    • the following key bindings have been moved:
      • SPC j j to split a line has been moved to SPC j n
      • SPC j h and SPC j l have been moved to SPC j 0 and SPC j $ respectively.
      • SPC J to split a string or sexp has been moved to SPC j s
  • All helm related key bindings under SPC h that are not about help have been moved to different key bindings:
    • SPC h b for =helm-filtered-bookmarks~is now SPC f b
    • SPC h l for helm-resume is now SPC r l
    • SPC h L for helm-locate-library is now SPC f e l
  • Git key bindings under SPC g have been reorganised to free up some keys and capitalize on Magit dispatch menu to keep things consistent (see git section in change log for more information)
  • Spacemacs layouts scope has been changed, now SPC b b lists the buffers of the current layout, use SPC B b to list all the opened buffers.
  • org-indent is now turned off by default
  • Micro states are now called transient states, the macro spacemacs|define-micro-state is deprecated, it is replaced by the new hydra powered macro spacemacs|define-transient-state.
  • Spacemacs layouts and workspaces transient states now exit when a layout or workspace is selected, use C-0C-9 to switch to a layout and keep the transient state open.
  • Remove support for the value all for dotspacemacs-configuration-layers variable. To install all the packages supported by Spacemacs there is a new variable dotspacemacs-install-packages.
  • Remove layer variable colors-enable-rainbow-identifiers in colors layer, You have to replace it by colors-colorize-identifiers 'all.
  • The bépo layer has been replaced by the new layer keyboard-layout, see the README.org of the layer for more info.

Hot new features

  • Refactor of the layer system which should reduce startup time by 20~25%.
  • New option to lazy install layers based on auto-mode-alist (similar to Prelude lazy install of packages but for layers) via the variable dotspacemacs-enable-lazy-installation.
  • Add support for Ivy via the new layer ivy, when used it replaces helm (thanks to justbur, d12frosted, goofansu, lszekeres, nixmaniack, ralesi, TheBB, zilongshanren)
  • Add support for different keyboard layouts via the new layer keyboard-layout, currently supported layouts are bépo and dvorak (thanks to StreakyCobra)
  • New transient states powered by Hydra, they replace the deprecated micro states (thanks to justbur)
  • New jump to definition abstraction to handle multiple jump backends like tags, dumb-jump etc… (thanks to TheBB)

(thanks to TheBB)
  • The value of dotspacemacs-editing-style can now be a list containing the keyword :variables (similar to dotspacemacs-configuration-layers) to define additional variables to modify the behavior of the editing style. This new keyword is useful for hybrid style which supports these variables:
    • hybrid-mode-enable-evilified-state, if non nil then buffer are evilified,
    • hybrid-mode-enable-hjkl-bindings, if non nil navigation on hjkl keys is enabled (for instance in helm buffers),

    Default value is unused

  • New variable dotspacemacs-frozen-packages. It is a list of packages, these packages cannot be updated or rollbacked.
  • New variable dotspacemacs-install-packages which replaces the variable dotspacemacs-delete-orphan-packages. This new variable defines the behavior of Spacemacs for installed packages. Possible values are used-only, used-but-keep-unused and all.

    unused packages as well as their unused dependencies.

    • used-but-keep-unused installs only the used packages but won’t uninstall

    them if they become unused.

0.104.0 (2015/09/28)

IMPORTANT - Breaking changes

  • org-plus-contrib is now installed from org ELPA repository, you may encounter strange behaviours from Org. In this case delete the org directory in the elpa directory and restart Emacs.
  • Helm key bindings have been slightly adjusted:
    • in helm-find-files (SPC f f): now C-h move up a directory and C-l enter the selected directory. describe-key command is available on C-S-h
    • in other helm buffers C-h is used to go to the next source and C-l is the same as RET. describe-key command is also available on C-S-h.
  • Y has been remapped to y$
  • The bookmark saved file has been moved to the .cache directory, if you have a bookmark file ~/.emacs.d/bookmarks then you’ll have to move it to ~/.emacs.d/.cache/bookmarks
  • Ruby on Rails framework has now its own layer called ruby-on-rails, be sure to add this layer to your dotfile if you use RoR.
  • Django framework has now its own layer called django, be sure to add this layer to your dotfile if you use it.
  • guide-key has been replaced by which-key, you may encounter issues if you have some guide-key custom configuration, remove any guide-key configuration and check the options offered by which-key.

Other important notes

  • All layers have been moved to layers directory
  • Category folder prefix has been changed to + (was !)
  • spacemacs layer has been moved to the layers directory in the category +distribution
  • All extensions directories have been renamed to local. extensions directories will be deprecated in 0.105.0.
  • tromey ELPA repository has been removed (thanks to robbyoconnor)

Hot new features

  • Enhanced layer package lists which merge old extension lists and package lists. Keywords can be associated with packages. The supported keywords are :location, :step and :excluded. extensions.el files and <layer>-excluded-packages variables are now optional and will be deprecated in the next version 0.105.0.
  • New distribution concept: you can now choose between two distributions: spacemacs or spacemacs-base. spacemacs-base contains only a minimal set of packages whereas spacemacs is the full Spacemacs experience. Set the distribution with dotspacemacs-distribution variable.
  • Add support for Quelpa which allows to use Melpa recipes to install packages directly from source (i.e. one can now install a package directly from a Github repository).
  • New editing style: hybrid. This style is similar to Vim style except that all Emacs key bindings are available in hybrid (insert) state instead of Vim key bindings. Also in this state, the buffers are evilified like in Vim style.

  • auctex layer has been renamed latex, be sure to update your dotfile if you use this layer.
  • erlang/elixir layer has been split into two layers erlang and elixir, be sure to update your dotfile if you use these layers.
  • git layer has been split into two layers: git and github so the layer variable git-enabled-github-support is deprecated, you have to add the layer github in your dotfile.
  • git-gutter has been replaced by diff-hl. This package is in the new layer version-control, be sure to add this new layer to your dotfile.
  • Projectile key bindings changes: SPC p e is now SPC p r (recent files) SPC p R is now SPC p G (regenerate tags) SPC p r is now SPC p R (replace)

Hot new features

  • Add support for Magit 2.1!
  • Helm now uses its header to display the input pattern.
  • Use Flycheck default configuration to check the current buffer in “real time” (yes this is a hot new features :-))
  • New interactive function spacemacs/switch-to-version, it will ask for a version number and warn if the current branch is not master. Users on develop branch cannot use this function (it has no effect).
  • Clicking on the up arrow in the mode-line will now update Spacemacs. A prompt asks for confirmation before updating.
  • New “tool assisted” search and replace interface supporting ag, pt, and ack with a new key binding scheme. Check the documentation for searching with an external tool.

New Layers

  • elixir (split from erlang-elixir)

Release 0.101.x

Hot new features

Choose your own editing style

Thanks to the new holy-mode Spacemacs can now be used by Vim users or Emacs users by setting the dotspacemacs-editing-style variable to =’vim= or =’emacs= in the dotfile. In Emacs style the leader is available on M-m. It is possible to dynamically switch between the two style with SPC P tab.

Mandatory init function and new Pre and Post init functions

A package is now considered to be used only if there is a corresponding <layer>/init-<package> function explicitly defined. There is now two new functions to initialize a given package:

  • <layer>/pre-init-<package> which is called before the init function
  • <layer>/post-init-<package> which is called after the init function

Even if a pre or post function exist for a given package, an init function is still required to consider the package to be used.

Auto-completion

Spacemacs now officially support auto-completion. The old layer company-mode has been removed and auto-complete has been removed from the spacemacs layer. They are now part of a new layer called auto-completion. You’ll have to this add layer to your dotfile to enable auto-completion.

Syntax checking

Flycheck has been removed from the Spacemacs layer and moved to a new layer called syntax-checking. You’ll have to add this layer to your dotfile to enable the fly syntax checking.

Org

Org packages have been removed from Spacemacs layer and moved to a new org layer. You’ll have to add this layer to your dotfile to enable the Org configuration of Spacemacs.

New shortcuts in startup buffer

Recent files, project and bookmarks can be displayed on the startup buffer. Check for the new dotfile variable dotspacemacs-startup-lists. (thanks to CarlQLange)

New lighter in the mode line

Lighter letters have been updated, now the letter corresponds to the key binding to toggle the associated mode. For instance auto-completion is on ⓐ and thus can be toggled with SPC t a.

Better package update

The package update should now prevent even more errors when upgrading a batch of packages.
