Good day -

I just started using emacs v28.1 today, having been
stuck with v27.2 for a long time, and now my
emacs-lisp scripts that used '(case V (va x) (vb y)...)'
now fail with the error message:
 "Symbol's function definition is void: case"
 - why this ABI breaking change ?

What was wrong with 'case' ?

Now I have to write my own 'case' macro, I guess?

All the best,
Jason

Oops, in last comment I meant to write:

Ah, I see, now it is called 'cl-case' -
what what the rationale behind this change ?

The case macro has always been defined by the cl library, and that has
not changed.

And the 'cl' package has been deprecated in emacs 27 (see etc/NEWS.27).

If you didn't change anything, something was probably loading the 'cl'
package before, and the new version has been fixed to use the 'cl-lib'
package instead, with the clean "cl-" prefix.

The 'cl-lib' has been introduced in emacs 24 (see etc/NEWS.24):

       *** CL's main entry is now (require 'cl-lib).
       `cl-lib' is like the old `cl' except that it uses the namespace cleanly;
       i.e., all its definitions have the "cl-" prefix (and internal definitions
       use the "cl--" prefix).

Ah.  "the clean 'cl-' prefix"...

No more filthy `case'.  Cleanliness is next
to Godotliness.  And all it takes is adding
a prefix!

Maybe we should change `when' to `cl-when',
`progn' to `cl-progn', `setq' to `cl-setq',
`car' to `cl-car',...?

;-)

New, improved, spick-and-span Emacs.

hmmm, using emacs 28 and probably 27, I do get cl is depricated, but I
have no idea which package is using it or do I need to change
anything?

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
you spend it?

I don't know what the experts would say.

My guess: just stop using it in the code you write yourself.

In other words, if you don't know where it's used, you probably
shouldn't care about it.

Aha, yes, and since I wrote those scripts & began using case I have
always had :
 '(setq inferior-lisp-program "/usr/bin/sbcl")
  (add-to-list 'load-path "/usr/share/common-lisp/source/slime" t)
  (load (expand-file-name "/usr/share/common-lisp/quicklisp/slime-helper.el")
 '
and that loads 'cl' - now I have changed to using
Slime v2.27, a newer version is being used that insists on the 'cl-'
prefix being used.

Thanks to all who responded!
