Use the release tag `release-21-2' to get this branch. The default
branch is XEmacs 21.0.
Installable Lisp packages are in:
See the 21.0-pre14 announcement for instructions about dealing with
the most recent Lisp package updates.
XEmacs 21.2 is an experimental, alpha developmental branch of XEmacs.
If you haven't installed XEmacs 21.0 and are not comfortable with
the packaging system don't try installing it.
Currently the differences from 21.2 are fairly slight. ~user completion
works in the minibuffer, a large number of obsolete variables has been
removed and indirect buffers have been implemented.
There is no currently scheduled date for beta3 and it probably won't
arrive any time in the very near future.
