Re: bbdb-complete-name and multiple matches



Thanks, the version from melba works.
ok version is 20140103.2131
The version that was broken is 2.36-3.
I'm using emacs 23.4.1 from debian stable.

There are some compatibility issues with v3 and it requires some configuration changes in setup. I have been using it a little and it does appear to work with VM (latest dev version of VM), but Iâm not a heavy VM user anymore. The bbdb database files are not backward compatible between v2.x and v3.x, so if you plan to try out v3, make sure you backup your .bbdb file first.
