2 Version 0.9.0 (2022-09-16)

  • Add `detached-list' user interface. It is an alternative user
    interface where it is easier to manage the `detached'
    sessions. Commands to mark, toggle, and narrow based on different
    criteria are available.
  • Rework session initialization and validation. This also improves the
    way Emacsen co-operates in term of updating sessions that become
    inactive. The new approach is described under `architecture' in
  • Improved handling of remote sessions. The package will only try to
    initialize sessions that are accessible when package loads. Other
    active sessions it will wait until a remote connection has been
    established before they are being watched.

3 Version 0.8.1 (2022-09-08)

  • Adjust default location for sessions, from a directory under
    `temporary-file-directory' to `user-emacs-directory'. This change is
    for security reasons in case the user shares the computer with other
    users. By default sessions will not be removed on reboots, the user
    can use `M-x detached-delete-sessions' to clear old sessions
  • Fix bug when initializing `detached-session-directory', this worked
    incorrectly when users initialized `detached' while being on a
    remote host.
  • Add an `initial-mode' property to a session. This enables sessions
    that were created using `create' mode instead of `create-and-attach'
    to inherit this property when a session is being rerun.

4 Version 0.8.0 (2022-09-02)

  • Change to semantic versioning
  • Update expectations on `detached-terminal-data-command' command,
    user should now set it manually. This approach works better since it
    doesn't cause any conflict when remote host and local host operating
    system differs.
  • Improved handling of remote sessions. The package will not eagerly
    try to watch sessions, it waits until user requests or that it finds
    an open connection to the remote host.
  • Detached tries to guess the `detached-terimal-data-command' based on
    operating system, if that's not possible the user needs to set it
    manually. Currently detection of `gnu/linux' and `darwin' is
  • Detached now relies on the tool `tail' in order to attach to
    degraded sessions. That means that `dtach' and `tail' are required
    to properly use the package.
  • Rename non-attachable sessions to degraded sessions.
  • Remove tail command, favor using `attach' or `view'.
  • Improve support for Emacsen. The PID of all detached Emacsen are
    registered, this is done to be able to promote one Emacs to primary,
    which has the responsibility to update the database.
  • Add command to open a session's log file in `dired'.
  • Remove the need for `detached-shell-history-file', the advice is
    updated to figure out the history file based on the shell program.
  • Remove the need for external `detached-env' script, the logic of the
    script is moved into the package instead.
  • Add `detached-terminal-data-command' which makes it possible for
    users to tweak the command used to run `script'.
  • Bug fix: Since the inception of the package there had been a bug
    which only occurred on remote hosts, and which was caused by `shell'
    not properly handling being adviced.
  • The package makes sure to let-bind the kill-ring before killing
    input in different modes, previously the killed text unintentionally
    ended up in users kill-ring.
  • Notification using the `alert' package is now present in the
    `detached-extra.el' and therefore doesn't need to be manually added
    by users

5 Version 0.7 (2022-05-21)

  • Rename `dtache' to `detached.el', source code has been moved to
  • Introduce `dtache-init.el' and move integration of other packages
    there. The integration now becomes even simpler for users of
  • Rewrite `dtache' to enable the package to lazy load and not force
    users to load it when starting Emacs.
  • Make completion of sessions adapt to the current dtache
    sessions. All of the sessions will be used to determine an an
    appropriate width for the command width as well as each individual
    annotation. Format has updated in `dtache-annotation-format' and a
    `dtache-command-format' has been added, this supersedes the
