+   * The LaTeX math menu can include Unicode characters if your Emacs
+     built supports it.  See the variable `LaTeX-math-menu-unicode',

+

+
+News in 11.52
+=============
+
+   * Installation and menus under XEmacs work again (maybe for the first
+     time).
+
+   * Fontification of subscripts and superscripts is now disabled when
+     the fontification engine is not able to support it properly.
+
+   * Bug fixes in the build process.
+
+News in 11.51
+=============
+
+   * PDFTeX and Source Special support did not work with ConTeXt, this
+     has been fixed.  Similar for Source Special support under Windows.
+
+   * Omega support has been added.
+
+   * Bug fixes in the build process.
+
+News in 11.50
+=============
+
+   * The use of source specials when processing or viewing the document
+     can now be controlled with the new `TeX-source-specials' minor mode
+     which can be toggled via an entry in the Command menu or the key
+     binding `C-c C-t C-s'.  If you have customized the variable
+     `TeX-command-list', you have to re-initialize it for this to work.
+     This means to open a customization buffer for the variable by
+     typing `M-x customize-variable RET TeX-command-list RET', selecting
+     "Erase Customization" and do your customization again with the new
+     default.
+
+   * The content of the command menu now depends on the mode (plain TeX,
+     LaTeX, ConTeXt etc.).  Any former customization of the variable
+     `TeX-command-list' has to be erased.  Otherwise the command menu
+     and the customization will not work correctly.
+
+   * Support for hiding and auto-revealing macros, e.g. footnotes or
+     citations, and environments in a buffer was added, *Note Folding::.
+
+   * You can now control if indentation is done upon typing <RET> by
+     customizing the variable `TeX-newline-function', *Note Indenting::.
+
+   * Limited support for `doc.sty' and `ltxdoc.cls' (`dtx' files) was
+     added.  The new docTeX mode provides functionality for editing
+     documentation parts.  This includes formatting (indenting and
+     filling), adding and completion of macros and environments while
+     staying in comments as well as syntax highlighting.  (Please note
+     that the mode is not finished yet.  For example syntax
+     highlighting does not work yet in XEmacs.)
+
+   * For macro completion in docTeX mode the AUCTeX style files
+     `doc.el', `ltxdoc.el' and `ltx-base.el' were included.  The latter
+     provides general support for low-level LaTeX macros and may be
+     used with LaTeX class and style files as well.  It is currently
+     not loaded automatically for those files.
+
+   * Support for ConTeXt with a separate ConTeXt mode is now included.
+     Macro definitions for completion are available in Dutch and
+     English.
+
+   * The filling and indentation code was overhauled and is now able to
+     format commented parts of the source syntactically correct.  Newly
+     available functionality and customization options are explained in
+     the manual.
+
+   * Filling and indentation in XEmacs with preview-latex and activated
+     previews lead to the insertion of whitespace before multi-line
+     previews.  AUCTeX now contains facilities to prevent this problem.
+
+   * If `TeX-master' is set to `t', AUCTeX will now query for a master
+     file only when a new file is opened.  Existing files will be left
+     alone.  The new function `TeX-master-file-ask' (bound to `C-c _'
+     is provided for adding the variable manually.
+
+   * Sectioning commands are now shown in a larger font on display
+     devices which support such fontification.  The variable
+     `font-latex-title-fontity' can be customized to restore the old
+     appearance, i.e. the usage of a different color instead of a
+     change in size.
+
+   * Support for `alphanum.sty', `beamer.cls', `booktabs.sty',
+     `captcont.sty', `emp.sty', `paralist.sty', `subfigure.sty' and
+     `units.sty'/`nicefrac.sty' was added.  Credits go to the authors
+     mentioned in the respective AUCTeX style files.
+
+   * Inserting graphics with `C-c RET \includegraphics RET' was
+     improved.  See the variable `LaTeX-includegraphics-options-alist'.
+
+   * If `LaTeX-default-position' is `nil', don't prompt for position
+     arguments in Tabular-like environments, see *Note Tabular-like::.
+
+   * Completion for available packages when using `C-c RET \usepackage
+     RET' was improved on systems using the kpathsea library.
+
+   * The commenting functionality was fixed.  The separate functions for
+     commenting and uncommenting were unified in one function for
+     paragraphs and regions respectively which do both.
+
+   * Syntax highlighting can be customized to fontify quotes delimited
+     by either >>German<< or <<French>> quotation marks by changing the
+     variable `font-latex-quotes'.
+
+   * Certain TeX/LaTeX keywords for functions, references, variables
+     and warnings will now be fontified specially.  You may add your own
+     keywords by customizing the variables
+     `font-latex-match-function-keywords',
+     `font-latex-match-reference-keywords',
+     `font-latex-match-variable-keywords' and
+     `font-latex-match-warning-keywords'.
+
+   * If you include the style files `german' or `ngerman' in a document
+     (directly or via the `babel' package), you should now customize
+     `LaTeX-german-open-quote', `LaTeX-german-close-quote' and
+     `LaTeX-german-quote-after-quote' instead of `TeX-open-quote',
+     `TeX-close-quote' and `TeX-quote-after-quote' if you want to
+     influence the type of quote insertion.
+
+   * Upon viewing an output file, the right viewer and command line
+     options for it are now determined automatically by looking at the
+     extension of the output file and certain options used in the
+     source file.  The behavior can be adapted or extended respectively
+     by customizing the variable `TeX-output-view-style'.
+
+   * You can control whether `TeX-insert-macro' (`C-c RET') ask for all
+     optional arguments by customizing the variable
+     `TeX-insert-macro-default-style', *Note Completion::.
+
+   * `TeX-run-discard' is now able to completely detach a process that
+     it started.
+
+   * The build process was enhanced and is now based on `autoconf'
+     making installing AUCTeX a mostly automatic process.  See *Note
+     Installation:: and *Note Installation under MS Windows:: for
+     details.

      list of possible completions.
 
      This is done by pressing C-c C-e (LaTeX-environment), and you will
      be prompted for which `environment' to insert.
 
-Editing your document
-=====================
+1.3 Editing your document
+=========================
 
 A number of more or less intelligent keyboard macros have been defined
 to aid you editing your document.  The most important are listed below.
      `\textrm{ }'), `\textit{ \/}' `\textbf{ }' etc.
 
    A number of additional functions are available.  But it would be far

+1.4 Running LaTeX
+=================
 
 When invoking one of the commands `TeX-command-master' (`C-c C-c') or
 `TeX-command-region' (`C-c C-r') LaTeX is run on either the entire
 current document or a given region of it.  The Emacs view is split in
 two, and the output of TeX is printed in the second half of the screen,
 as you may simultaneously continue editing your document.  In case TeX
