Thanks for the pointing out the correct place to get the latest version of
mic-paren. I did not look very hard yesterday to see if I could find a newer
version than 3.2 which is the latest one that I have. Neither of the two
locations where I looked had newer versions
(http://user.it.uu.se/~mic/emacs.shtml had 3.2 and
http://www.gnusoftware.com/Emacs/Lisp/ had 2.0).
It would be nice if the maintainers of both these sites would point to the
correct place to get the latest version, now that it seems to have found a
Using the search engine at vivisimo.com I found 58 references to mic-paren.el.
All that I looked at with the exception of the wiki site contain or point to

I would recommend this package too (i'm the maintainer :-) but i would also
recommend to use the latest version and also to use the only actual
download-site which is http://www.emacswiki.org/elisp/. The ELL
(http://www.anc.ed.ac.uk/~stephen/emacs/ell.html) has also a valid link to
http://user.it.uu.se/~mic/emacs.shtml does not longer contain actual versions
of mic-paren.el. The version 3.2 contained on that website is very old!
Current version is 3.7!
