FIXME
Support for displaying and editing ``bidirectional'' text has been
removed. Text is now always displayed on the screen in a single
consistent direction---left to right---regardless of the underlying
script. Similarly, @kbd{C-f} and @kbd{C-b} always move the text
cursor to the right and left respectively. Also, @key{right} and
@key{left} are now equivalent to @kbd{C-f} and @kbd{C-b}, as you might
expect, rather than moving forward or backward based on the underlying
``paragraph direction''.
Users of ``right-to-left'' languages, like Arabic and Hebrew, may
adapt by reading and/or editing text in left-to-right order.
@item
The Emacs Lisp package manager has been removed. Instead of using a
``user interface'' (@kbd{M-x list-packages}), additional Lisp packages
must now be installed by hand, which is the most flexible and
``Lispy'' method anyway. Typically, this just involves editing your
init file to add the package installation directory to the load path
and defining some autoloads; see each package's commentary section
and/or README file for details.
@item
The option @code{delete-active-region} has been deleted. When the
region is active, typing @key{DEL} or @key{delete} no longer deletes
the text in the region; it deletes a single character instead.
@item
We have reworked how Emacs handles the clipboard and the X primary
selection. Commands for killing and yanking, like @kbd{C-w} and
@kbd{C-y}, use the primary selection and not the clipboard, so you can
use these commands without interfering with ``cutting'' or ``pasting''
in other programs. The @samp{Cut}/@samp{Copy}/@samp{Paste} menu items
are bound to separate clipboard commands, not to the same commands as
@kbd{C-w}/@kbd{M-w}/@kbd{C-y}.
Selecting text by dragging with the mouse now puts the text in the
kill ring, in addition to the primary selection. But note that
selecting an active region with @kbd{C-@key{SPC}} does @emph{not}
alter the kill ring nor the primary selection, even though the text
highlighting is visually identical.
@item
In Isearch, @kbd{C-y} and @kbd{M-y} are no longer bound to
@code{isearch-yank-kill} and @code{isearch-yank-pop} respectively.
Instead, @kbd{C-y} yanks the rest of the current line into the search
string (@code{isearch-yank-line}), whereas @kbd{M-y} does
@code{isearch-yank-kill}. The mismatch with the usual meanings of
@kbd{C-y} and @kbd{M-y} is unintended.
@item
Various completion features have been simplified. The options
@code{completion-cycle-threshold} and
@code{completion-category-overrides} have been removed. Due to the
latter removal, Emacs uses a single consistent scheme to generate
completions, instead of using a separate scheme for (say) buffer name
completion. Several major modes, such as Shell mode, now implement
their own inline completion commands instead of using
@code{completion-at-point}.
@item
We have removed various options for controlling how windows are used,
e.g.@: @code{display-buffer-base-action}, @code{display-buffer-alist},
@code{window-combination-limit}, and @code{window-combination-resize}.
@item
The command @kbd{M-x customize-themes} has been removed. Emacs no
longer comes with pre-defined themes (you can write your own).
@item
Emacs no longer adapts various aspects of its display to GTK+
settings, opting instead for a uniform toolkit-independent look. GTK+
scroll bars are placed on the left, the same position as non-GTK+ X
scroll bars. Emacs no longer refers to GTK+ to set the default
@code{region} face, nor for drawing tooltips.
@item
Setting the option @code{delete-by-moving-to-trash} to a
non-@code{nil} now causes all file deletions to use the system trash,
even temporary files created by Lisp programs; furthermore, the
@kbd{M-x delete-file} and @kbd{M-x delete-directory} commands no
longer accept prefix arguments to force true deletion.
@item
On GNU/Linux and Unix, the default method for sending mail (as
specified by @code{send-mail-function}) is to use the
@command{sendmail} program. Emacs no longer asks for a delivery
method the first time you try to send mail, trusting instead that the
system is configured for mail delivery, as it ought to be.
@item
Several VC features have been removed, including the @kbd{C-x v +} and
@kbd{C-x v m} commands for pulling and merging on distributed version
control systems, and the ability to view inline log entries in the log
buffers made by @kbd{C-x v L}.
