New Package, xkb-mode, to edit X Keyboard Extension Files

James Dyer
Based on my recent forays into ergonomic key-mapping in Emacs for SwayWM, and effectively for any Wayland compositor or X11-based system using the X Keyboard Extension (XKB) standard, I realized that there doesn’t seem to be an Emacs mode to edit these keyboard configuration files (*.xkb). This is surprising, considering they have been around for more than 30 years! So I wrote one, and its on MELPA.

The selected-window-accent-mode is now present on MELPA and is my first Emacs package! It is designed to visually distinguish the currently selected window by applying a unique accent color to its fringes, mode line, header line, and margins. See https://github.com/captainflasmr/selected-window-accent-mode for more information and examples. Whats New Version 0.6.0 DONE ISSUE #1 Do not apply highlighting when frame only contains 1 window when selected-window-accent-smart-borders is set DONE define accent color saturation adjustment
