GNU Emacs 25.1 Text Editor Arrives with Enhanced Network Security Features

GNU Emacs 25.1 is a major update that introduces a great number of new features and improvements since the previous stable release, and among the best new ones, we can mention the ability to load dynamic and shared libraries/modules, initial support for Cairo-based drawing, as well as character folding support in the isearch.el component. There’s also a new minor mode called “electric-quote-mode,” which can be used for adding curved quotes as you type, better support when handling Unicode characters into your text, various network security enhancements offering SSL and TLS certificate validation, and Xwidgets support to let you embed native widgets inside Emacs buffers.
