The newest release is at the top.  For further details, please consult
the manual: <>.

Version 0.4.0 on 2022-06-09

  ⁃ The official Git repository is now hosted on SourceHut.  Mirrors are
    available on GitHub and GitLab—users can open issues there if they
    find it difficult to use the mailing list.  The sources:

    • Official manual: <>
    • Change log: <>
    • Git repo on SourceHut: <>
      ⁃ Mirrors:
        • GitHub: <>
        • GitLab: <>
    • Mailing list: <>

  ⁃ The `grep-mode-hook' and `proced-mode-hook' are included in the
    default value of the user option `lin-mode-hooks'.  This practically
    means that Lin will be active in the implied modes when
    `lin-global-mode' is enabled.  Thanks to Nicolas De Jaeghere for the
    patch (Nicolas has assigned copyright to the Free Software

  ⁃ The faces that leverage the macOS palette (`lin-mac{,-override-fg}')
    are made to work with Mitsuharu Yamamoto's `emacs-mac' port:
    <>.  They read
    the `mac' display specification in addition to the `ns' one.
    Remember that you can specify the desired face as the value of
    `lin-face' (its doc string documents all the stylistic options we
    provide).  Thanks to Kai von Fintel for the patch (the change is
    well below the ~15 line threshold for copyright assignment).

Version 0.3.0 on 2022-04-08

  ⁃ Changed the source repository from GitLab to SourceHut:
    <>.  Use the mailing list to start
    a discussion, report a bug, send a patch, etc.:
    <>.  The GitLab URL will serve
    as a mirror from now on (a GitHub mirror is still available and will
    remain that way).

  ⁃ Introduced a buffer-local minor mode as well as its global
    equivalent: `lin-mode' and `lin-global-mode'.  This makes it easier
    to set up Lin in user init files and/or toggle it on demand.  The
    following shows how the package can be used:

    │ (require 'lin)
    │ (setq lin-face 'lin-blue) ; check doc string for alternative styles
    │ ;; You can use this to live update the face:
    │ ;;
    │ ;; (customize-set-variable 'lin-face 'lin-green)
    │ (setq lin-mode-hooks
    │       '(bongo-mode-hook
    │   dired-mode-hook
    │   elfeed-search-mode-hook
    │   git-rebase-mode-hook
    │   ibuffer-mode-hook
    │   ilist-mode-hook
    │   ledger-report-mode-hook
    │   log-view-mode-hook
    │   magit-log-mode-hook
    │   mu4e-headers-mode
    │   notmuch-search-mode-hook
    │   notmuch-tree-mode-hook
    │   occur-mode-hook
    │   org-agenda-mode-hook
    │   tabulated-list-mode-hook))
    │ (lin-global-mode 1)

  ⁃ The `lin-face' now has a custom setter which automatically updates
    its appearance in all buffers where `lin-mode' is enabled.  Users
    might thus prefer to set its value with `customize-set-variable' in
    order to find the style they like the most.  Otherwise setting the
    value with `setq' is just fine for stable configurations.  If, in
    that case, the user wants to update the face, they must invoke
    `revert-buffer' or equivalent (e.g. type `g' in Dired with the
    default key bindings) or evaluate the function

  ⁃ The user option `lin-mode-hooks' now includes `bongo-mode-hook'
    (from the `bongo' package).  Its default value is shown in the
    sample code above.

Version 0.2.0 on 2022-03-16

  Rewrote the entirety of `lin.el' to make the configuration easier and
  keep the code streamlined.  The gist is that now Lin automatically
  enables `hl-line-mode' in every mode implied by `lin-mode-hooks'.
  Here is how Lin should be set up henceforth: …  …
