This file contains the release notes for `sweep', an embedding of
SWI-Prolog in Emacs.

For further details, please consult the manual:

Version 0.8.1 on 2022-10-25

Added completion-at-point for variable names

  When point is preceded by a valid Prolog variable name, invoking
  `completion-at-point' (with `C-M-i' or `M-TAB') now detects that it
  needs to complete a variable name and provides other variable names
  that occur in the same clause as completion candidates.

Version 0.8.0 on 2022-10-22

New command `sweeprolog-insert-term-dwim' in `sweeprolog-mode' buffers

  This version introduces a new mechanism for context-based term
  insertion which revolves around a new command
  `sweeprolog-insert-term-dwim', bound to `C-M-m'.  When invoked after a
  fullstop ending a predicate clause, this command inserts a new clause
  for the same predicate.  When called with point over a call to an
  undefined predicate, this command insert a definition for that
  predicate after the current predicate definition.

New command `sweeprolog-forward-hole' in `sweeprolog-mode' buffers

  This command, bound to `C-c C-i' in `sweeprolog-mode-map', moves the
  cursor and marks the next hole (placeholder variable) inserted by
  `sweeprolog-insert-term-dwim' for the user to fill it.

References to Prolog library files are now linkified in help buffers

  The HTML rendering `sweep' performs to display Prolog documentation in
  `*Help*' buffers now also recognizes reference to Prolog library
  files, such as `library(list)', in Prolog documentation.  Clicking on
  such reference opens the corresponding file from the local Prolog

Version 0.7.2 on 2022-10-20

`sweep-module' is now loaded on-demand

  Previously, loading `sweeprolog.el' with e.g. `(require 'sweeprolog)'
  would cause Emacs to also load `sweep-module' immediately, unless the
  user option `sweeprolog-init-on-load' had been explicitly set by the
  user to nil.  This version implements lazy loading of `sweep-module',
  which makes loading `sweeprolog.el' a lot faster and circumvents
  potential problems with byte-compiling Elisp files that depend on
  `sweeprolog.el' but do not have `sweep-module' available at compile

Newly deprecated user option `sweeprolog-init-on-load'

  The embedded Prolog is now loaded and initiated lazily, regardless of
  the value of `sweeprolog-init-on-load', which is now obsolete.

Version 0.7.1 on 2022-10-19

Jumping to source works also for built-in predicates defined in C

  `sweep' now knows how to find and jump to the definitions of native
  built-in SWI-Prolog predicates defined in C, under the condition that
  the user has the SWI-Prolog sources checked out locally.

  See `C-h v sweeprolog-swipl-sources' and the new section “Built-in
  Native Predicates” in the manual for more information about this

Fixes and improvements to `sweeprolog-describe-predicate'

  This version fixes some compatibility issues with Emacs versions prior
  to 29 in `sweeprolog-describe-predicate'.  Reported by Jan Wielemaker.

Version 0.7.0 on 2022-10-17

New command `sweeprolog-describe-predicate'

  Similarly to `sweeprolog-describe-module', this command renders the
  full `PlDoc' documentation of the specified Prolog predicate in a
  `help-mode' buffer.

Prolog `*Help*' buffers are now cross-referenced

  References to Prolog predicates in the `*Help*' buffer produced by
  `sweeprolog-describe-module' and `sweeprolog-describe-predicate' are
  now “buttonized” such that pressing `RET' on them shows the
  description of the referenced predicate.

Version 0.6.3 on 2022-10-16

New command `sweeprolog-describe-module'

  Experimental.  Renders the full `PlDoc' documentation of the specified
