Conkeror now requires Xulrunner 2.0 (Firefox 4) or greater.

May 1, 2014

The keyword $match_required was renamed to $require_match. (Following Emacs convention.)

Completers are now instantiated with the new keyword, so calls like "all_word_completer(...)" become "new all_word_completer(...)".

javascript_completer no longer treats the current buffer or window as special. Instead of taking a buffer as its argument, it takes any object, and that object is the scope from which it draws completions.

define_webjump keyword $description was renamed to $doc.

define_webjump keyword $argument has been removed. It was found unnecessary for this value to be provided explicitly by webjumps, as it can be derived from other webjump properties.

get_shell_command_completer replaced by shell_command_completer (instantiated with new).

'require_match' is now a property of webjumps instead of a property of completions objects. Further discussion of this change is here below:
