  <h1>The History of XEmacs</h1>

  <p>An alternative to GNU Emacs, XEmacs was originally based on
    an early alpha version of FSF's version 19, and has diverged
    quite a bit since then. XEmacs was known as Lucid Emacs
    through version 19.10. Almost all features of GNU Emacs are
    supported in XEmacs.  The maintainers of XEmacs actively track
    changes to GNU Emacs while also working to add new features.</p>

  <p>More information about the current and past developers of XEmacs,
    as well as some information about the history of XEmacs development
    is available within XEmacs by selecting <strong>'About XEmacs...'
    </strong> from the <strong>Help</strong> menu. Detailed information
    is available in the <a href="../Releases/" shape="rect">NEWS
      files</a> from each release.</p>
