*          XEmacs 21.4.19 "Constant Variable" is released.
      "Constant Variable" is the nineteenth in the OXYMORON series.

The latest stable release of XEmacs, XEmacs 21.4.19 - "Constant Variable",
is now available from xemacs.org and its mirrors.

* Availability

Anonymous ftp:

             ftp://ftp.xemacs.org/pub/xemacs/xemacs-21.4

See http://www.xemacs.org/Install/.  As of 21.4.19, only a source
tarball has been supplied.  There was virtually no use of the info and
elc tarballs, so xemacs-21.4.19.tar.gz and xemacs-21.4.19.tar.bz2 are
the only tarballs supplied.

If you already have a 21.4.18 source tree, a patchkit is available in
xemacs-21.4.18-21.4.19.patch.gz.  This does not update .elcs or .infos,
they will be rebuilt when you make XEmacs.  If you have an earlier
version, you can repeatedly apply patchkits.

The tarballs and patches are signed with my GPG key, available from
most public keyservers and also from
ftp://ftp.xemacs.org/pub/xemacs/pgp-keys/vin_shelton.asc

Here are the MD5 check sums of each of the files related to the XEmacs
21.4.19 release:

0d2d255e2b362064959f329d522b137b  xemacs-21.4.19.tar.bz2
768fd7a9b269dad14514f9bc7151cbc4  xemacs-21.4.19.tar.bz2.asc
3f753e2cc22a428c7d775339f29c7e46  xemacs-21.4.19.tar.gz
228a34085b6ffa1c4547dd3d8b24a1e1  xemacs-21.4.19.tar.gz.asc

Also, if you don't have the packages yet, see

        http://www.xemacs.org/Documentation/packageGuide.html.

Anonymous (pserver) CVS:

Anonymous CVS is available.  We are very grateful to the staff at our
host, SunSITE.dk, for a lot of help and quick reponse to all our
requests.

If you haven't used XEmacs CVS recently, we moved the repository
before the 21.4.6 release.  The repository structure is the same as
before, so it should be possible to reuse an existing checked-out CVS
tree.

Take care that your Root is set correctly to

      CVSROOT=:pserver:cvs@cvs.xemacs.org:/pack/xemacscvs

On platforms with a Bourne shell and find available, something like

      for r in `find . -name Root`; do echo $CVSROOT &gt; $r; done

will convert your entire tree.

Tags are also the same; to update to release 21.4.19, use the release
tag "r21-4-19".  To set a sticky tag which will always update to the
current release, use the branch tag "release-21-4".

For more details, see

             http://www.xemacs.org/Develop/cvsaccess.html

	* XEmacs 21.4.19 is released

2006-01-28  Vin Shelton  &lt;acs@xemacs.org&gt;

	* etc/package-index.LATEST.gpg: Updated with latest package data.

2005-12-18  Ilya N. Golubev  &lt;gin@mo.msk.ru&gt;

	Merge from 21.5.
	* configure.in: Fixed `LDAP_OPT_ON' libraries configuration
	introduced in local 2005-03-13 change of `configure.in'.  However,
	do not check for internal `-lber' `ber_pvt_opt_on' symbol as done
	in upstream.  This symbol is not part of any published interface,
	it may exist or not exist, depending on openldap version.  Cryptic
	comment before using it in upstream 21.5 source did not state
	precisely under which circumstances checking for it was useful,
	which sort of user code tried to link the symbol.  So in local
	21.5 dismissed both the code and the comment without writing a
	cleaner equivalent.
	* etc/NEWS: Document.

2005-12-13  Vin Shelton  &lt;acs@xemacs.org&gt;

	* etc/package-index.LATEST.gpg: Updated with latest package data.

2005-12-04  Vin Shelton  &lt;acs@xemacs.org&gt;

	* etc/OXYMORONS: insert 'Social Property' for 21.4.18.
	* etc/NEWS: document motif deprecation and defaulting
	--with-widgets to off.

2005-12-04  Ville Skytt  &lt;scop@xemacs.org&gt;
	* etc/PACKAGES: Fix description of xetla.</pre>

	* easymenu.el (easy-menu-all-popups):
	Add a docstring. 
	* easymenu.el (easy-menu-add):
	Document a bug, rework the function to preserve any existing
	non-default mode-popup-menu instead of overwriting it, and not to
	bother normalising the menu title (nothing else does).
	* easymenu.el (easy-menu-remove):
	Restore the default mode-popup-menu instead of leaving an empty
	one when we remove the last easy-menu popup. 

2006-01-06  Adrian Aichner  &lt;adrian@xemacs.org&gt;

	* package-get.el (package-get-download-sites): Add pt.xemacs.org,
	as suggested by Rodrigo Ventura.
	* package-get.el (package-get-pre-release-download-sites): Ditto,
	with replacement of xemacs-21.5 by beta, which is the logical path
	to our beta core and package pre-releases.

2005-12-17  Adrian Aichner  &lt;adrian@xemacs.org&gt;

	* package-get.el (package-get-download-sites): Add Hong Kong
	download site.
