Version 0.25.0 of package Sweeprolog has just been released in NonGNU ELPA.
You can now find it in M-x list-packages RET.

Sweeprolog describes itself as:

  Embedded SWI-Prolog

More at https://elpa.nongnu.org/nongnu/sweeprolog.html

## Summary:

  Sweep is an embedding of SWI-Prolog in Emacs.  It uses the C
  interfaces of both SWI-Prolog and Emacs Lisp to let you query
  Prolog directly from Elisp.  On top of this tight integration,
  Sweep provides an advanced development environment for SWI-Prolog
  in Emacs.

## Recent NEWS:


This file contains the release notes for Sweep, an embedding of
SWI-Prolog in Emacs.

Version 0.25.0 on 2023-09-17

Snappier query highlighting in Sweep top-levels

  Sweep now highlights the query you insert in the top-level immediately
  as you type it.  In previous versions, query highlighting relied on a
  short timer, that could lead to a small delay before Sweep would
  update the highlighting when you change the query.

Sweep top-levels can now communicate via pty instead of local TCP

  Sweep top-level buffers can now communicate with their corresponding
  top-level threads via a pseudo-terminal (pty) device, instead of a
  local TCP connection.  Local TCP connections remain supported for
  systems where Emacs cannot use a pty, such as MS Windows.  On Unix
  systems, top-levels now use pty by default.

Compatibility with and support for Prettify Symbols mode

  Sweep Prolog mode is now compatible with the Prettify Symbols minor
  mode.  Prettify Symbols mode, and similar features, rely on
  `font-lock-add-keywords' to add highlighting patterns.  Sweep does not
  use Font Lock keywords for its highlighting, but now it does invoke
  the relevant Font Lock keyword highlighting routines for compatibility
  with minor modes such as Prettify Symbols.

Minor improvements to hole highlighting

  Sweep now uses a slightly smaller “box” around holes to highlight them
  in Prolog code, such that holes are displayed with the same dimensions
  of any other text.  This avoids small visual jitter when inserting or
  removing holes in a buffer.

Version 0.24.1 on 2023-09-09

Refine checks for extracting goals to separate predicates

  Sweep now checks that the selected region is a goal at a callable
  position, rather than a data term, before suggesting to extract the
  region to a separate predicate in `sweeprolog-insert-term-dwim'
  (`M-RET') and in the right-click context menu.

Version 0.24.0 on 2023-09-08

New command `sweeprolog-extract-region-to-predicate'

  This command lets you select a part of the body of a clause and
  extract it into a separate predicate.  The command
  `sweeprolog-insert-term-dwim' (`M-RET') now invokes
  `sweeprolog-extract-region-to-predicate' if the region is active.

Version 0.23.1 on 2023-08-30

Documentation improvements and minor bug fixes

  This is a maintenance release, including a rewrite of the Sweep manual
  in Texinfo format along with some minor bug fixes and improvements.

Version 0.23.0 on 2023-08-18

Sweep now requires Compat, the forward-compatibility library for Elisp

  This version introduces a dependency of Sweep on Compat, the
  forward-compatibility library for Elisp available from GNU ELPA.
  Compat provides implementations of newer Elisp functions and features
  for older Emacs versions, and Sweep now makes use of it for improved
  backward compatibility and ease of maintenance.

Version 0.22.2 on 2023-08-14

Fix potential crash due to a collision between Xwidgets and XPCE

  This version fixes an issue that could cause Emacs to crash during
  certain Sweep operations if Emacs is built with Xwidgets and
  SWI-Prolog is built with XPCE.

Fix feedback in `sweeprolog-set-prolog-flag' and `sweeprolog-set-pack-install'

  In previous versions, these commands could report failure even when
  they in fact succeeded.  This version fixes the feedback these
  commands provide.

Version 0.22.1 on 2023-08-07

New command `sweeprolog-submit-bug-report'

  Use this command to contact the Sweep maintainers directly from within
  Emacs.  It has been documented in the manual already since version
  0.6, but its implementation was unintentionally omitted.
