** Emacs now uses the XDG convention for init files.
For example, it looks for init.el in ~/.config/emacs/init.el.
Emacs continues to look for init files in their traditional locations
if ~/.config/emacs does not exist. The XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment
variable (default ~/.config) specifies the parent directory of these
configuration files, so invoking Emacs with XDG_CONFIG_HOME='/nowhere'
might be useful if your new-location init files are scrambled.
For example, it looks for init.el in ~/.config/emacs/init.el, and
similarly for other init files.
The XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable (which defaults to ~/.config)
specifies the parent directory of these and other configuration files,
and will override their traditional locations (the home directory,
~/.emacs.d, etc.).
Emacs will still look for init files in their traditional locations if
XDG_CONFIG_HOME does not exist, so invoking Emacs with
XDG_CONFIG_HOME='/nowhere' might be useful if your new-location init
files are scrambled, or if you want to force Emacs to ignore files
under XDG_CONFIG_HOME for some other reason.
