AUCTeX 11.92

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 \LaTeX 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 [2017-12-05 Tue 10:55]: ACUTeX → AUCTeX.

    These last few days when use-package has been repeatedly breaking for me (sounds like it only happened once for you, which is lucky) I took a little vacation in Vim. It's been fun, maybe I'll try evil when I can use Emacs again.

    Also, you misspelled AucTeX (several times).

      I update regularly and haven't seen any other problems with use-package but I seldom restart Emacs so they may have been hidden.

      Not several times, every time. Fixed now. Thanks.
