How to force apply of dir-locals?


Emacs 27.1 has been released. I've used Emacs 27.0.50 for a while with Spacemacs and appart from some initial issues with the new dump systems (resolved last year) I haven't had any specific issues. So it should be safe to upgrade. If you do upgrade, Spacemacs will download all the Emacs packages again (as it stores packages in version specific directory under .emacs.d/elpa )


Any new features folks are finding particularly useful? I haven’t taken a close look at the changelog yet.


Native JSON parsing seems to get a few mentions, along with the portable dumper.

It seems that it's not auto enabled ://


I am afraid I couldn't find anything about enabling native json


@U05254DQM how did you install it? it seems im on emacs version 26.3 because its the version ubuntu has in the app store


i guess i can select 27.1 from the app store


I am actually using Emacs 28, via the emacs-snapshot package on


If using this PPA, remove all other emacs related packages first
