Paradox 2.0 Released: Execution hook, Interface improvements, Async Execution16 Feb 2015, by Artur Malabarba.
I've just released Paradox version 2.0. If you've been following the blog, you already know this features the ability to do background upgrades. Below is a list of other features.
However, I'd first like to say this release requires an Emacs version of at
package.el changed a lot in that release, and the trouble of
supporting two separate versions was keeping me from writing new features. I may
implement backwards compatibility if I see people asking for it.
Some new features
- Set to
nildepending on whether you want this feature.
- Upgrade everything, wherever you are. Combines well with the above.
- A hook run after every
transaction. Remove functions from it to streamline your experience, or add
your own functions to extend functionality. For instance, if you don't like
*Paradox Report*buffer, you can prevent its creation by removing the relevant functions from the hook:
- Better interaction
- Now, when you hit
xin the Paradox Menu to execute a set of installations and deletions, the buffer narrows to display only those packages (see below). Much nicer than the usual message in the echo area.
These are the main changes. You can also view package commit lists, but that's been the case for a while.
