3.2 Installing the development version

Choose the development version if you want to live on the bleeding edge of emacs-wiki development or try out new features before release.

The Arch revision control system allows you to retrieve previous versions and select specific features and bug fixes.

Downloading the modules for the first time:

  1. Install arch. Debian: apt-get install tla . Other distros: see .
  2. Register the archive and download the modules.
              # Register the archive
              tla register-archive
              # Download emacs-wiki module into the emacs-wiki/ subdirectory
              tla get [email protected]/emacs-wiki--main--1.0 emacs-wiki
  3. Open your ~/.emacs and add the emacs-wiki/ directory to your load path.
              (add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/emacs-wiki")

To list upstream changes not in local copy:

     # Change to the source directory you are interested in. Example:
     cd emacs-wiki/
     # Display the summary of changes
     tla missing --summary

To update to the latest version:

     cd emacs-wiki
     tla replay

You can also obtain the archive at the following locations on the web:
