1.1. Version 3.9.5

1.1.1. Add compatibility with Emacs-28< for helm-packages

Tested with emacs-27.

1.1.2. Add new action package-isolate for helm-packages

Allow launching a new Emacs with only package(s).

1.1.3. Packages list can be refreshed with C-c C-u

BTW there is no more option to update from actions with prefix arg.

1.1.4. Add more affixations fns for completing-read

Themes, colors etc…

1.1.5. Add new var helm-compleions-detailed for emacs-27

This allow using completions-detailed in Emacs-27 with various describe-* functions.

1.1.6. Helm-occur now doesn't hang when trying to match empty lines

With "^$".

1.1.7. Highlight matches in M-x highlight only commands

I.e. Items in short documentation are not highlighted.

1.2. Version 3.9.4

1.2.1. Add two new alists to allow extending completions-detailed

This allows providing detailed completions in more places, see `helm-completing-read-extra-metadata` and `helm-completing-read-command-categories`. They are not provided as user variables as it may be tricky to provide the corresponding affixations functions. As of now we have detailed completions in describe-function/variable/symbol/command/package, find-function/variable, switch-to-buffer, customize-variable/group, package-(vc)install, package-vc-checkout.

1.2.2. New helm packages manager

The old helm-elisp-package has been replaced by helm-packages. The old one was too slow, taking lot of memory and even crashing Emacs especially with last Emacs-29.

1.3. Version 3.9.3

1.3.1. Ensure to use affixation functions provided by caller in helm-mode

1.4. Version 3.9.2

1.4.1. New progress bar for Rsync action from helm-find-files
1.4.2. Describe-* commands with completions-detailed are now fast
1.4.3. Use Wfnames package as dependency to replace Wdired

1.5. Version 3.9.1

1.5.1. helm-config file has been removed

Therefore (require 'helm-config) will return an error, don't use this anymore. If installing from source use instead (require 'helm-autoloads), otherwise from a package install, the autoloads file will be automatically loaded.

1.5.2. Allow using helm-completion-styles-alist by command
1.5.3. New mode for editing large vars

Will be used automatically when using the set variable action from helm-apropos.

1.5.4. Improve all-the-icons in many places
