Changes since 3.9.3: * Indentation rules improved. New customizable variable `sml-rightalign-and'. Also `sml-symbol-indent' is now customizable. * New add-log support (try C-x 4 a from within an SML function). * Imenu support * sml-bindings has disappeared. * The code skeletons are now abbrevs as well. * A new *sml* process is sent the content of sml-config-file (~/.sml-proc.sml) if it exists. * `sml-compile' works yet a bit differently. The command can begin with `cd "path";' and it will be replaced by OS.FileSys.chDir. * run-sml now pops up the new buffer. It can also run the command on another machine. And it always prompts for the command name. Use a prefix argument if you want to give args or to specify a host on which to run the command. * mouse-2 to yank in *sml* should work again (but won't work for next-error any more). * New major-modes sml-cm-mode, sml-lex-mode and sml-yacc-mode. * sml-load-hook has disappeared as has inferior-sml-load-hook. * sml-mode-startup.el is now automatically generated and you're supposed to `load' it from .emacs or site-start.el. * Minor bug fixes. Changes since 3.3: * the sml-drag-* commands have disappeared. * added a little bit of `customize' support. Many of the customization variables for indentation are still in flux, so they are not customize'd. * proformas have been replaced by skeletons. it's mostly the same as before (the layout has slightly changed, tho). The main difference is that the indentation relies on the major-mode indentation so it is implicitly customized, which makes more sense to me. Also I added an electric space M-SPC that will call the corresponding skeleton if any matches the immediately preceding symbol. Basically that allows you to type `l e t M-SPC' to call the `let' skeleton. * M-C-f and M-C-b try to be smart and jump around let..end and such blocks. It's probably either too smart or not smart enough, tho. * there is no more sml-<compiler>.el since the code should work for "all" known compilers. If your favorite compiler doesn't seem to work right send me a sample session. * hilite support has disappeared and font-lock and menu support is now built-in. * the indentation algorithm is inherently much slower. I've tried to ensure the slowness never manifests itself in practice, but if you find a case where the indentation doesn't feel instantaneous, tell me. * function arguments get properly indented (yes, madam). * the indentation has been majorly reworked. The list of changes is too long. Many customizations have disappeared, some may reappear depending on the feedback I get. The indentation should now "always" work right, so tell me when it doesn't. * nested comments are only properly handled if you have a nested-comments aware Emacs (I don't know of any yet) or if you turn on font-lock. * provide `sml-compile' which does something similat to `compile' except it passes the command to an inferior-sml process. Also it has an additional hack to look for sml-make-file-name in parent directories and cd to it before sending the command (handy for CM.make() when the sources.cm file is not in the current directory). This hack is very ad-hoc and quite misleading for people who don't use CM. I.e. the default is not safe. * sml-send-region and friends now always use a temp file. The temp file management has been made a little more secure. * the overlay is now turned off by default. Instead the region is activated, so that transient-mark-mode will end up highlighting the error just like the overlay used to do. * sml-proc uses compile.el for error parsing. This mostly means that instead of C-c ` you want to use the standard C-x `. It also means that error formats for any compiler can be added more easily. * The special frame handling has been thrown out because it doesn't interact well with Emacs' own similar feature. I believe XEmacs still doesn't provide such a feature, so if you miss it, either switch to Emacs or (convince someone else to) add it to XEmacs.
