GNU emacs 21.2-3 has been released (the -2 version was skipped).
NOTE: emacs-21.2-1 overwrote several files from the "ctags" package.
NOTE: You should reinstall it (if you have it installed)
NOTE: to put the overwritten files back.
- resolved conflicts with the "ctags" package
- split into 3 packages:
emacs - base package, does not require X11
emacs-el - LISP source files (should not be needed for running emacs)
emacs-X11 - version of emacs that supports X11
- telnet, ftp, ange-ftp, gnus, etc. all now work properly
If you don't want an X11 version of emacs, just install "emacs". This
package no longer requires any XFree86 packages.
If you install "emacs-X11", the emacs binary gets changed to an X11 one,
but the old non-X11 one is still available as "emacs-nox", much like
RedHat linux does it.
You only need "emacs-el" if you want to modify the installed LISP sources.
The package shouldn't be needed if you just want to run emacs.
There are no outstanding porting issues that I am aware of -- everything
seems to be working. Undumping is still not implemented -- it looks
pretty easy to do but I don't have the time at the moment, and it's not
necessary for emacs to be able to do its thing.
