This morning's 0.16.4+ development snapshot is up:
http://armedbear.org/j.zip (source and documentation)
http://armedbear.org/j-jar.zip (just j.jar)
You can now officially set buffer-specific properties for file-backed
buffers via Alt X.
lineupArglist = true
You can then admire your work by doing Alt X, listProperties.
Once you set a buffer-specific property, j will remember and restore
it even if you close the buffer and/or restart j, up to a global limit
(which is currently 100 files; files that don't have any file-specific
properties set don't count toward the limit).
In previous versions, there was an undocumented way to do the same
thing with Alt X, "buffer.lineupArglist = true", the "buffer." prefix
being required to make it clear that you were setting a buffer-
specific rather than a global property.
Upon further review, this prefix has been dropped, and setting global
properties via Alt X is no longer supported (even unofficially).
There's not much point to setting a global property on the fly, since
it's easy enough to do it by editing ~/.j/prefs.
In other news, there was an annoying (and hard to reproduce) bug in
the buffer-management code in recent snapshots that on rare occasions
caused a buffer to get unfairly demoted to the bottom of the list.
This bug has been fixed.
Thanks for your support.
