Emacs: logos version 0.3.0

Logos is a small package that provides the means for a simple focus mode utilising page breaks or outline headings. Watch the demo of logos.el and refer to the manual for the relevant details. That page also includes links to the GitLab repo and its mirror on GitHub.

Below is the change log entry.


Version 0.3.0 on 2022-03-30

This release basically contains one major refinement about how buffer narrowing is handled. In detail:

  1. If logos-outlines-are-pages is non-nil, it now includes the match of the page-delimiter regexp in the narrowed region and leaves point right after the page-delimiter—so in Org mode, after the stars. (It is better to leave point there than at the very beginning of the narrowed buffer to match the behavior of logos-forward-page-dwim when the buffer is not narrowed.) The inclusion of the delimiter helps retain any folding functionality associated with that line (e.g. Org headings).

  2. To avoid skipping pages in the narrowed case when point is at their outer boundaries, logos checks if you are right at the start of a page-delimiter and if so moves past the delimiter in the opposite direction of the given motion: so if you are moving back, it puts you after the delimiter, and if you are moving forward it puts you before the delimiter. (The bug was that if the point was at point-max while narrowed and moving forward, it would skip past a page and the same in the opposite direction with point-min.)

  3. Changed logos-narrow-dwim to call logos--narrow-to-page instead of narrow-to-page, so that it too includes the page-delimiter match in the page.

  4. The logos--page-p now always checks for the right delimiter, which may be that of the outline if logos-outlines-are-pages is non-nil. Whereas before it was hard-coded to the generic page-delimiter.
