XEmacs status 2015 #emacs

๐Ÿ•“๏ธŽ - 2015-12-01

I stopped using XEmacs 4 years ago - stopped my buildbots and automatic Debian package building scripts, and migrated to GNU Emacs.

The stuff that I missed from XEmacs I could implement in 40 lines of elisp in GNU Emacs.

Two years ago the XEmacs packages were removed from Debian.

The XEmacs release manager - doing what the does best - has written a looong announcement about the ever slowing pace of XEmacs, and questions the future.

It has been a long time coming, but maybe a refocus for the folks left is a good thing.
