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

Compat describes itself as:

  Emacs Lisp Compatibility Library

More at https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/compat.html

## Summary:

  Compat is the Elisp forwards compatibility library, which provides
  definitions introduced in newer Emacs versions.  The definitions
  are only installed if necessary for your current Emacs version.  If
  Compat is compiled on a recent version of Emacs, all of the
  definitions are disabled at compile time, such that no negative
  performance impact is incurred.  The provided compatibility
  implementations of functions and macros are at least subsets of the
  actual implementations.  Be sure to read the documentation string
  and the Compat manual.

## Recent NEWS:

Release of "Compat" Version

  • Minor optimization of `plist-get' and `plist-put'.
  • Minor compatibility adjustments for the Emacs 30 development
  • A minimal version of `compat.el' will be part of Emacs 30. Emacs
    :core packages can directly `(require 'compat)' without the
    `NOERROR' flag. Furthermore Compat will not be installed
    unnecessarily. If a package depending on Emacs 25.1 and Compat 29.1
    is installed on Emacs 30.1, Compat 29.1 will not be installed from
    ELPA, since Emacs 30.1 already provides the required functionality.

Release of "Compat" Version

  • Ensure that `seq' is required properly both at compile time and

    Compat dependency is not compiled.
