Version 0.3.0 on 2022-04-08

  ⁃ Changed the source repository from GitLab to SourceHut:
    <>.  Use the mailing list to
    start a discussion, report a bug, send a patch, etc.:
    <>.  The GitLab URL will
    serve as a mirror from now on (a GitHub mirror is still available
    and will remain that way).

  ⁃ Refined how Pulsar behaves in the case of the last line.  Basically,
    when the last line cannot be highlighted we want to pulse the one
    right above.  Thanks to JD Smith for fine-tuning this behaviour in
    merge request 1 over at the GitLab mirror:
    <> (exempt
    from the requirement to assign copyright to the Free Software
    Foundation as it is below the threshold).

  ⁃ Ensured that the Pulsar effect are limited to the current window
    when the buffer is displayed in multiple windows.  This avoids the
    common problem of simultaneous highlights in multiple locations,
    which confuse rather than inform the user of where the point is.
    Thanks to Aymeric Agon-Rambosson for the contribution in merge
    request 2 over at the GitLab mirror:
    <>.  Aymeric
    has assigned copyright to the Free Software Foundation.

  ⁃ Wrote a buffer-local and a global minor mode that sets up Pulsar.
    This supersedes the old design which had a built-in assumption that
    the "pulse line" effect should always be global.  Now the user has
    more flexibility.  They may also disable Pulsar on demand.  Note
    that pulsar still only triggers its effect for entries in the user
    option `pulsar-pulse-functions'.  Thanks to Rudolf Adamkovič for the
    feedback in issue 9 over at the GitLab mirror:

  ⁃ Implement the `pulsar-highlight-dwim' command.  It is like the
    `pulsar-highlight-line' except it also understands regions, be they
    regular or rectangular.  Thanks to Mark Barton for the feedback in
    issue 13 over at the GitLab mirror:

  ⁃ Clarified some technical points in various doc strings and the
    manual, such as what is the `pulsar-delay' and the
    `pulsar-iterations'.  Thanks to Rudolf Adamkovič for the feedback in
    issue 12 over at the GitLab mirror:

Version 0.2.0 on 2022-03-16

  ⁃ Fixed an inconsistency that was present when Emacs was running in a
    server-client model where the highlight would never pulse but
    instead remain fixed in place until another command was invoked.  By
    default, the pulse effect should now work for that use-case.  Thanks
    to Mark Barton, Petter Storvik, and user kb for their feedback in
    issue 1: <>.

  ⁃ Implemented the `pulsar-highlight-line' command and abstracted the
    relevant code.  Unlike `pulsar-pulse-line', it never pulses the
    current line.  Instead it keeps the highlight in place until another
    command is invoked.  Thanks to Mark Barton for proposing this in
    issue 1.

  ⁃ Introduced the user option `pulsar-pulse' which determines whether
    pulsar should use a pulse effect (notwithstanding the aforementioned
    new command).  When its value is non-nil (the default) pulsing takes
    place.  Thanks to Petter Storvik for suggesting this approach in
    issue 1.

  ⁃ Added the user option `pulsar-iterations' which controls how smooth
    or abrupt the pulse effect is.  This complements the existing
    variable `pulsar-delay'.  Both apply only when `pulsar-pulse' is

  ⁃ Wrote the `pulsar-generic' face and made it the default value of the
    `pulsar-face' user option.  This is consistent with the original
