Download this CC Mode version.

This version contains few, but big, new features, and significant internal improvements.

  • CC Mode is now licensed under the GPL version 3 or any later version.

  • Emacs 21 is no longer supported, although CC Mode might well still work with it.
    The minimum versions supported are Emacs 22 and XEmacs 21.4.

  • It is now possible for CC Mode to "guess" an existing buffer's style.
    This style can then be used in other buffers. Contributed by Masatake YAMATO, after original code by Barry Warsaw.

  • Java Mode has been enhanced to support Java 5.0 (Tiger) and Java 6 (Mustang).
    Contributed by Nathaniel Flath.

  • c-beginning-of-defun and c-end-of-defun now respect nested scopes.
    Thus C-M-a will, by default, go to the beginning of the immediate function, not the top level.

  • "Macros with semicolons" can be registered, for correct indentation.
    Where such a macro ends a line (no semicolon), the next statement is no longer parsed as a statement continuation.

  • Many bugs have been fixed, font locking has become more accurate, angle brackets are better handled, and sluggish code has been optimised.
