Emacs: mct is on GNU ELPA

Simple package for default minibuffer completion

My Minibuffer and Completions in Tandem (mct) package is now available on GNU ELPA for Emacs version 28 or higher. You can install it with these commands:

M-x package-refresh-contents
M-x package-install RET mct

As I have demonstrated in a recent video, MCT is a very thin layer of interactivity on top of the default minibuffer and the standard *Completions* buffer. It basically adds commands to cycle between the minibuffer and the Completions, making the two work as parts of a unified space.

The package comes with a fully fledged Info manual. It provides a detailed overview of the functionality on offer, the customisation options, a sample configuration which also covers other useful built-in utilities (like file-name-shadow-mode), and more. Read the manual after you have installed the package by evaluating the following:

(info "(mct) Top")

Note that I just pushed a new tagged release: version 0.2.0. It improves a few things in the code base and expands the manual. Depending on when you install the package, expect an update to be available soon.
