Emacs: pulsar version 0.4.0

Pulsar is a small package that temporarily highlights the current line, either on demand or automatically after invoking a function that is present in a user-defined list. Watch the demo

Further below are the release notes.

  • Added the user option pulsar-pulse-on-window-change. This covers all commands or functions that affect the current window, so there is no need to include them individually in the pulsar-pulse-functions. Users who prefer to trigger a pulse only after select functions (e.g. only after other-window) are advised to set this user option to nil and update the pulsar-pulse-functions accordingly. Thanks to Ivan Popovych for the patch (commit b1a78dd).

  • Changed the default value of pulsar-pulse-functions to omit all those commands which are already covered by the aforementioned. In the interest of continuity, the old value is kept in the source code, with the relevant symbols commented out.

  • Named the mailing list email address as the Maintainer: of Pulsar. The package headers help the user find our primary sources and/or communication channels. This change conforms with work being done upstream in package.el by Philip Kaludercic. I was informed about it here: https://lists.sr.ht/~protesilaos/general-issues/%3C875ykl84yi.fsf%40posteo.net%3E.

  • Updated the documentation, where necessary and made other minor tweaks to the code.
