      If you notice one difference, it would probably be that commands that act on the symbol at point (e.g. cider-doc) will no longer prompt you to confirm the symbol. The old default was a mistake and I wanted to adjust this for this grand release.

      Best news I’ve heard all day! It’ll be nice to remove the override of this setting from my Emacs config.

      fewer and fewer people are using CIDER and Emacs every year

      Do you mean fewer people are using Emacs in general or specifically as a Clojure editor? Recently I got the feeling Emacs was gaining popularity again, but I’m certainly not involved in the community as much as you.

        Both. I’m pretty sure that less people are using Emacs for Clojure development, and I haven’t seen any data indicating that Emacs’s long-term downtrend in usage has reversed. I guess it’s safe to say that Emacs will remain a relatively niche editor going forward.

          The real question is:

          how many total emacs users exist, rather than, what percentage of developers use emacs?
