XEmacs 21.2-pre4 has been committed to the CVS tree. The notable
addition is Hrvoje Niksic's implementation of indirect buffers.
As many of you are aware of, I'm getting beaten up badly with respect
to how much time I have available for XEmacs. Things aren't going to
get any better in the short-term. The office that I'm currently
utilizing will be going away some time this month, perhaps as early
as the 15th worst case. What this basically means in XEmacs-terms,
is that if 21.0 is going to get out soonish, it has to go out now.
I think the following schedule is doable. The remaining pending
XEmacs package changes (I haven't looked at anything recent that has
gone through xemacs-patches yet) get folded in over the remainder of
the weekend. A final release of 21.0 gets made Monday evening
(US/Pacific time), along with all the packages.
If we can't hit that, it'll be October at the soonest. I'd just as
soon put it off, but it's been put off way too long as it is, and we
might as well release what we have and fix all the problems in 21.1.
