All newest Emacs versions, always

PPA description

NEWS: While we wait for someone to take over Julien Danjou's work, you can use this PPA If you want to know more about the differences between the 2 PPAs, read Another difference not discussed in previous link is that ~ubuntu-elisp provides daily builds while I provide bimonthly builds. Daily builds look great in theory, but require daily update of your system and daily restart of Emacs.

NEWS: Julien Danjou stops the maintainance of emacs-snapshot Debian builds. As a result, there won't be any update of emacs-snapshot until a solution is found.

BUG: if you experience a bug with accented characters, please see

- emacs24 will be updated only when I change the build process or when new emacs24 versions are realeased
- emacs-snapshot is updated between once every two weeks on average. These versions are created from those of Julien Danjou for Debian unstable:
