Emacs 25: save cursor position

Since I upgraded to Emacs 25 it was no longer saving my last cursor position in edited file. This is a feature I really like because I often fire and close emacs rather than keeping it opened.

Before (< emacs 25)

(setq save-place-file "~/.emacs.d/saveplace") 
(setq-default save-place t) 
(require 'saveplace)

Emacs 25

(save-place-mode t)
(setq save-place-file "~/.emacs.d/saveplace") 
(setq-default save-place t)

That’s all :)
