  • Expanded template does not get removed until the point leaves it. After your input the last argument in a method call expanded by company-eclim, you can press <tab> once more, to jump after the closing paren. No other bundled back-ends are affected.

  • New tooltip face colors used on themes with light background.

  • company-clang now shows meta information, too.
  • Some performance improvements.
  • Fixed two old tooltip annoyances.
  • Instead of overrriding-terminal-local-map, we're now using emulation-mode-map-alists (experimental). This largely means that when the completion keymap is active, other minor modes' keymaps are still used, so, for example, it's not as easy to accidentally circumvent paredit-mode when it's enabled.
