2 Version 0.9.2 (2022-11-01)

  • Use `display-buffer' in `detached-list' in order for users to more
    easily customize the display of the buffer.
  • Add concept of `filters' to quickly apply a set of narrow criteria.
  • Speed up initialization of sessions.
  • Narrow criteria are persistent and applied when resuming detached
    list sessions.
  • Add narrow criterion which searches through the output of all
    sessions in detached list which matches a regexp.
  • Add database hook in order for detached list to update automatically
    when a session is updated.
  • Add annotation property to session. This allows users to add a
    custom annotation to a session, see it as a possibility to document
    a session for the future.
  • Implement mode-line indicator for criteria in `detached-list'
  • Add command for initializing a session directory
  • Add integration with `nano-modeline'
  • Add `detached-describe-session' command
  • Add unique narrow criteria

3 Version 0.9.1 (2022-09-22)

  • Fix bug with detaching in `shell'

4 Version 0.9.0 (2022-09-16)

  • Add `detached-list' user interface. It is an alternative user
    interface where it is easier to manage the `detached'
    sessions. Commands to mark, toggle, and narrow based on different
    criteria are available.
  • Rework session initialization and validation. This also improves the
    way Emacsen co-operates in term of updating sessions that become
    inactive. The new approach is described under `architecture' in
  • Improved handling of remote sessions. The package will only try to
    initialize sessions that are accessible when package loads. Other
    active sessions it will wait until a remote connection has been
    established before they are being watched.

5 Version 0.8.1 (2022-09-08)

  • Adjust default location for sessions, from a directory under
    `temporary-file-directory' to `user-emacs-directory'. This change is
    for security reasons in case the user shares the computer with other
    users. By default sessions will not be removed on reboots, the user
    can use `M-x detached-delete-sessions' to clear old sessions
  • Fix bug when initializing `detached-session-directory', this worked
    incorrectly when users initialized `detached' while being on a
    remote host.
  • Add an `initial-mode' property to a session. This enables sessions
    that were created using `create' mode instead of `create-and-attach'
    to inherit this property when a session is being rerun.

6 Version 0.8.0 (2022-09-02)

  • Change to semantic versioning
  • Update expectations on `detached-terminal-data-command' command,
    user should now set it manually. This approach works better since it
    doesn't cause any conflict when remote host and local host operating
    system differs.
  • Improved handling of remote sessions. The package will not eagerly
    try to watch sessions, it waits until user requests or that it finds
    an open connection to the remote host.
  • Detached tries to guess the `detached-terimal-data-command' based on
    operating system, if that's not possible the user needs to set it
    manually. Currently detection of `gnu/linux' and `darwin' is
  • Detached now relies on the tool `tail' in order to attach to
    degraded sessions. That means that `dtach' and `tail' are required
    to properly use the package.
  • Rename non-attachable sessions to degraded sessions.
  • Remove tail command, favor using `attach' or `view'.
  • Improve support for Emacsen. The PID of all detached Emacsen are
    registered, this is done to be able to promote one Emacs to primary,
    which has the responsibility to update the database.
  • Add command to open a session's log file in `dired'.
  • Remove the need for `detached-shell-history-file', the advice is
    updated to figure out the history file based on the shell program.
  • Remove the need for external `detached-env' script, the logic of the
    script is moved into the package instead.
  • Add `detached-terminal-data-command' which makes it possible for
    users to tweak the command used to run `script'.
