v2.10.1 (2021-09-14)

Hi, data friends!

It’s time for a new patch release with some important fixes and a few minor improvements.


  • Macros weren’t working; now they are!
  • Repeat commands were broken, and now are fixed.
  • Changes needed for the Guix build have been merged in.


  • Added a new command zo (open-cell) to open a file or URL from a path in the current cell.
  • Added a new command guard-sheet-off to unguard sheets. (Thanks to Janek Schleicher for that PR!)
  • Added an option to disable histograms with disp_histlen (if 0) or disp_histogram (if empty string).
  • Added new decorators @Extensible.before and @Extensible.after to simplify extending existing functions.
  • Fixed other bugs (see the CHANGELOG for a complete list).
