Annnnd we’re back. Occasionally a package update is broken and aborts the Emacs boot process. Normally I just disable the offending package for a day and keep on trucking. However, when
use-package breaks, you’re pretty much restricted to an
Emacs -q environment. At least you are if, like me,
use-package controls the loading of all your other packages. It’s not all that hard to clone the
use-package repository and check out a working version but in this case I opted to just wait for MELPA because I knew the problem had already been fixed. It takes a long time to do a MELPA build, though, so I had to wait.
Today’s post is about AUCTeX. A new version has just been released.

It’s not yet in ELPA but will probably appear shortly.
I generally use Org mode to generate my but sometimes you need fine control and for those cases it’s often easier to just use AUCTeX. If you’re doing heavy duty technical writing, you should probably be using AUCTeX. Besides, they have a new version out.
Update: ACUTeX → AUCTeX.
