Tonight I started Emacs, and
helm-mode is no longer used for certain actions. So far I have found that, for me,
find-file don't use
helm anymore, which they have since I first started using helm. I can clearly see
Helm displayed in my mode-line, but when I hit
Helm disappears from my mode-line.
For me these have always worked automatically, I haven't configured these commands to use
helm explicitly. Other commands continue to use
describe-function still use
helm for completion.
Normally, I would assume that I messed up my configuration file or that an update to
helm changed something. However, all my configuration files are under version control, and nothing has changed. Also, I think I might have updated
helm yesterday through MELPA, but I can't imagine that I would have gone all day without using
M-x without noticing that they had changed. Also, on the
helm github page, I cannot see any indication that these things have been changed recently.
Starting Emacs with the
-Q option to bypass my init file, activating packages with
package-initialize and running
M-x helm-mode to activate
helm gives me the same results:
helm completion is used for e.g.,
describe-function, but not for
find-file other commands might be affected as well, but this is what I have found so far. Is anyone else experiencing this behavior? Does anyone know what is going on?
To be clear,
helm-M-x commands still work, so I could bind them to
C-x C-f and
M-x, but I am curious what happened, to the previoius behavior.
