Some interesting Emacs threads and LaTeX news

C K Kashyap posited some new requirements on code folding and there were a number of interesting responses culminating with a link to HideRegion.  You probably should stick to hide-show or OutlineMode and venture into these solutions only if there is a use case that is not met by hide-show. :)

Did you forget to enable auto-fill while writing text?  No worries, you can fix the written text with a simple C-x h M-q .

Have some file and project management stuff that you want Emacs to handle?  Here's a thread on what one user would like to see as project management that he wants emacs to do some heavy lifting. Might be worth your time to check it out.

BTW, there's a new site pgfplots.net for fantastic LaTeX plotting by the LaTeX guru Stefan Kottwitz.  You should check it out and contribute your pgfplots to it.
