      This is interesting, as normally I learn about Emacs releases from the website, which hasn't been updated yet, and Arch repos were fast enough to provide the update before I found out about a new Emacs release.

        I never learnt vi or emacs, they are just confusing for me.
        The only text-based text editor I learnt is nano, but I don't use it.

        Normally I use Visual Studio Code or Atom.

          git clone https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/emacs.git

          Who still needs releases? I cannot wait until the Cairo support in Emacs leaves the experimental stage. True Emacs addicts git-pull daily.

            I prefer vim. vi has many annoyances, such as pressing backspace doesn't erase chars from your screen (when I see that behavior I think I'm not deleting anything) and not being able to use the cursor keys. Also, when pulling a Git repo and being asked to merge, I can't press Ctrl-C, otherwise this bug happens:

            Code:
            :
            At EOF
            :
            At EOF
            :
            At EOF
            :
            At EOF
            :
            At EOF
            :
            At EOF
            :
            At EOF
            ...

              That was actually what I first wrote when drafting my post, but changed it in case anyone pedantic pulled me up over that not being the official title of the war

                Too bad harf-buzz text shaping I think haven't made into this release.

                  As someone who uses both vim, emacs, and vim mode within Emacs I gotta say: Emacs is better vim than the vim itself.

                    I hear Cairo support is fairly functional these days. If it doesn't behave good enough in 26.2 (AFAIK some are using it daily already), try the current master.
