To: XEmacs Beta Testers &lt;xemacs-beta@xemacs.org&gt;
From: "Stephen J. Turnbull, XEmacs 21.5 Beta Engineer" &lt;stephen@xemacs.org&gt;
Subject: XEmacs 21.5.26 "endive" is released.
Organization: The XEmacs Project



*          XEmacs 21.5.26 "endive" is released.
      "endive" is the twenty-seventh in the VEGETABLE series.


The successor to XEmacs 21.5.25 "eggplant", "endive" adds support
for the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture by Jerry James, and a large
number of fixes and improvements to the new garbage collector by
Marcus Crestani.  The most important of these was to make finalization
of Lisp objects asynchronous, which doesn't have direct relevance to
users, but will make writing correct code for Lisp primitives easier.
Vin Shelton contributed several improvements to the path-finding code
(primarily MS Windows-oriented), aided and abetted by Mike Sperber and
several testers.  Of course, there was the usual array of small
improvements and bug fixes.

*Important Notice*

There were a number of important bugs (including crashes) in the new
gc code fixed, and unfortunately some of them affected the supposedly
stable --enable-newgc=no code, it seems.  Also, Malcolm Purvis
committed a workaround for an assert in the regex code that was being
provoked by Gnus and by the error parser for M-x compile.  It is
*highly recommended* that you upgrade if you are currently using the
previous beta, 21.5.25.

However, there are a number of undiagnosed crashes lurking, especially
on the x86_64 platform.  It's possible they've been fixed en passant,
but since they're undiagnosed, please be prudent, save often, and back
up your essential data.



This is the development line.  The current series started with XEmacs 21.5.0
(an alias for XEmacs 21.4.0 "Solid Vapor", the first release in the current
stable line).  21.5 is the code base for introduction of major new subsystems
and fixes to design bugs that experience shows will introduce instability.
So far the main effort has been on improved support for Unicode, updates to
the build infrastructure, and development of new features in memory allocation.

For general information about XEmacs, the developers, and the user community,
see our home page,

		       http://www.xemacs.org/

* XEmacs 21.5.26 is "beta" software. 

The usual "no warranty" disclaimer (see etc/WARRANTY, sections 10 and 11)
applies.  At this point in time, it is the version that most developers
are using for their daily work.  However, it is certain that many bugs
remain and new ones will be introduced as development proceeds.  Be sure
to take care to save your work often and follow a regular backup regime.

Note that part of the release process involves a full build and test cycle,
with no regressions.  However, one build on the release engineer's host is
all the quality assurance that is done for most beta releases.  Be sure to
checkpoint a known good version of XEmacs (eg, a CVS tag or tarball) before
overwriting your XEmacs source tree.

* Availability

Anonymous ftp:

             ftp://ftp.xemacs.org/pub/xemacs/xemacs-21.5

See http://www.xemacs.org/Install/ for more information about building
from source.

If you already have a 21.5.25 source tree, a patchkit is available in
xemacs-21.5.25-21.5.26.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.

We thank our hosts at Tux.org, and numerous mirrors around the world,
for providing space and bandwidth for distributing XEmacs.

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, dotsrc.org (formerly SunSITE.dk), for a lot of help and quick
response to all our requests.

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.

To make it straightforward to access certain versions of the code, we have
a standard tagging policy.  To update to release 21.5.26, use the update
flag "-r r21-5-26".  To update to the current release without referring to
it specifically, use the flag "-r r21-5-current-beta".  To update to the
latest commits in CVS, use the flag "-A".  Then rebuild XEmacs.

For more details, see

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

or the ViewCVS interface at
                        http://cvs/xemacs.org .
