Not possible to switch back from visual<->emacs mode to normal mode

Anonymous created an issue

Enter visual mode with "v", enter emacs mode with C-z, exit emacs mode with C-z. Now you are back in visual mode. I would expect that <escape> brings me back to normal mode, but it returns me to emacs mode. The only way I see to return to normal mode is through M-x normal-mode command.

    Hm, I've just tried starting with make emacs from evil's source and everything seems to work well. Could you please verify the problem with make emacs? Maybe you have some additional customizations?

    Sorry, I was using (probably outdated) version from elpa, not from bitbucket. With current version everything works as expected. Thank you. By the way how do you check version of evil?

    Currently this is not possible. But the version on ELPA (the Marmelade repo) is not an official release, someone else put it there. Until the first official release it is probably better to use the development version (you can use the MELPA repo to get the latest version with Emacs' package system, if you prefer this way).

    MELPA is essentially the same as el-get -- it just uses elpa to deploy the packages, which seems to be more robust than el-get in my experience.
