Emacs project is an open source, extensible, self-documenting, customizable and real-time display editor.

If this seems to be a bit of a mouthful, an easier explanation is Emacs is a text editor and more.

#### What’s new in Emacs 26.2:

• Emacs modules can now be built outside of the Emacs tree source.
• Emacs is now compliant with the latest version 11.0 of the Unicode Standard.
• In Dired, the ‘Z’ command on a directory name compresses all of its files.
