What’s new in Emacs 29.1

Emacs 29.1 has arrived and there are some exciting new features to explore. One standout addition is the official support for tree-sitter, a library that parses text into a syntax tree. This offers benefits such as improved syntax highlighting and precise indentation. There’s also the inclusion of EGlot, a language server client that makes it easier to code in Emacs. The use-package configuration tool is now built into Emacs, making it simpler to share and manage configuration snippets. Other updates include better long line support, native SQLite support, and improved image format support. However, some features like installing tree-sitter can be a bit complex and require additional setup. Overall, Emacs 29.1 brings several noteworthy enhancements for users to enjoy.
