gpicker 2.2 is out!

Hello there! I've just made long due release of gpicker 2.2. Some notable changes are:

  • new project type -- script, that I'm using to handle multi-repository project (i.e. couchbase)
  • implemented poor man's isearch on steroid's -- gpicker-isearch
  • big improvements for gpicker-imenu
  • more optimization

Savannah project page has link download area with source .tar.{gz,bz2,xz} archives and binary .deb packages (built on lenny) for i386 and amd64. If you haven't heard of gpicker before also check out supermegadoc which is very convenient gpicker-using tool.


  1. Thank you! I'm using gpicker since years and I still didn't find any emacs package with a better match algorithm yet. I'm quite happy that it's still maintained.

    The only thing I desire for is a better emacs integration, because it looks rather foreign in emacs to have a popup. Maybe you can make your "score_simple_string" function callable from elisp? This would probably be enough for packages like helm to provide a decent, fast pattern matcher.

  2. Hi David. Thank you for your kind words.

    There is already some support for performing completions from-inside elisp. gpicker-simple is doing that. And within source you can actually find my very minimal and half-working attempt to integrate gpicker-simple with IDO.

    So please feel free to pick this effort up. Right now I don't have time to do any significant elisp work myself.
