+# 1.5 (upcoming)
+
+##### Prevent Eldoc flicker when moving around ([#198][github#198])
+
+##### Show large docs in help buffer instead of echo area by default 
([#198][github#198])
+
+Also add two new customization variables
+`eglot-put-doc-in-help-buffer` and `eglot-auto-display-help-buffer`.
+
+# 1.4 (5/1/2019)
+
+##### Correct param highlighting in the first line of signature
+
+##### Display documentation strings with `gfm-view-mode`
+
+##### Remove hard dependencies on `flymake-mode`
+
+You can turn it off now in buffers managed by Eglot.
+
+##### Run connection hooks with proper directory local variables 
([#196][github#196])
+
+This fixes issues with suspiciously empty `didChangeConfiguration`
+messages that are supposed to communicate parameters from a
+directory-set `eglot-workspace-configuration`.
+
+##### Fix completion sorting ([#190][github#190])
+
+##### Take over Flymake and Eldoc completely while managing buffers
+
+No longer try to add Eglot's facilities to existing facilities in
+these two domains.
+
+# 1.3 (10/12/2018)
+
+##### Control strictness towards incoming LSP messages ([#144][github#144], 
[#156][github#156])
+
+##### Add brief context after `xref-find-references` when available 
([#52][github#52])
+
+##### Support `completionContext` to help servers like `ccls`.
+
+##### Use Flymake from GNU ELPA ([#178][github#178])
+
+# 1.2 (23/11/2018)
+
+##### Support snippet completions ([#50][github#50])
+
+Use `yasnippet.el` for this, if it is installed.
+
+##### Implement `workspace/didChangeConfiguration` ([#29][github#29])
+
+##### Handle experimental/unknown server methods gracefully ([#39][github#39])
+
+##### Accept functions as entries in `eglot-server-programs` ([#63][github#63])
+
+`CONTACT` in the `(MAJOR-MODE . CONTACT)` association in
+`eglot-server-programs` can now be a function of no arguments
+producing any value previously valid for contact.  Functions can be
+interactive on non-interactive.
+
+##### Snappier completions that don't hinder typing ([#61][github#61])
+
+##### Consider `:triggerCharacters` in company completion ([#80][github#80])
+
+##### Add support for `TextEdit`s in completion
+
+##### Prefer ccls over cquery for C/C++ ([#94][github#94])
+
+##### `eglot-ignored-server-capabilites` is more user-friendly 
([#126][github#126])
+
+##### Implement asynchronous server connection ([#68][github#68])
+
+A new defcustom `eglot-sync-connect` controls this feature.
+
+##### Add a generic `eglot-execute-command` API
+
+Work by Michał K.
+
+##### Prompt for server in `eglot-shutdown` ([#73][github#73])
+
+##### Add support for code action literals
+
+##### Add support for the Eclipse JDT language server ([#63][github#63])
+
+##### Add out-of-the-box support for Haskell, Kotlin, Go, Ocaml, R
+
+##### Add the ability to move to LSP-precise columns ([#124][github#124])
+
+Some servers like `clangd` follow the spec very closely here.
+
+##### Fix a potential security issue fontifying LSP doc ([#154][github#154])
+
+##### Fix many, many bugs

[#160][github#160], [#167][github#167]
+
+# 1.1 (9/7/2018)
+
+##### Implement TCP autostart/autoconnect (and support Ruby's Solargraph)
+
+The `:autoport` symbol in the server incovation is replaced
+dynamically by a local port believed to be vacant, so that the ensuing
+TCP connection finds a listening server.
+
+##### Eglot now depends on Emacs library `jsonrpc.el`.
+
+##### Assorted bugfixes
+
+<!-- Now a million references -->

+- `eglot-autoreconnect`: Control ability to reconnect automatically to

+- `eglot-sync-connect`: Control blocking of LSP connection attempts;
