    Few users expected more changes in this release, a user commented on HackerNews, “So … only two relevant changes this time?” While others think that there are editors comparatively better than Emacs.

    Another user commented, “I don’t want to start a flamewar, but I moved most things I was doing in Emacs to Textadept a while back because I found Textadept more convenient. That’s not to say TA does everything you can do in Emacs, but it replaced all of the scripting I was doing with Emacs. You have the full power of Lua inside TA. Emacs always has a lag when I start it up, whereas TA is instant. I slowly built up functionality inside TA to the point that I realized I could replace everything I was doing in Emacs.”
