[2012-07-19] Update: Please see Damien Cassou’s comment describing his emacs snapshot PPA moving forward.
After reading several good things about emacs 24, I decided to give it a shot. A little googling led me to Damien Cassou’s emacs snapshot PPA. Simply ran the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cassou/emacs sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install emacs-snapshot emacs-snapshot
Everything works great so far, specifically email in mew, chatting with jabber.el, my org files, and org2blog/wp. Played with the built-in ELPA package manager a little, and I really thing it will be nice to avoid manual package management.
Haven’t decided if/how often I’ll update my snapshot. Maybe until emacs 24 comes out in the Canonical packages? But then will I want to stay on the bleeding edge? Thoughts/suggestions/experiences?
