* XEmacs 21.4.7 "Economic Science (Windows )" is released.
"Economic Science" is the eighth in the OXYMORON series.
XEmacs 21.4.7 "Economic Science (Windows )" is the third in a series of
MS-Windows focused releases of XEmacs. The intent of this release
series is to provide source and binary distributions of the XEmacs
21.4.x series with any additional fixes or enhancements necessary to
provide a pleasurable editing experience on the MS-Windows platform.
The original 21.4.7 windows release contained a significant process-handling
related bug which was caused by two different changes. These changes have
been reverted so that M-x shell, amongst other things, works once again.
Source is available via cvs at cvs.xemacs.org
. This release has the
release tag r21-4-7-windows and the most current snapshot will always
have the tag 21-4-windows.
The binaries for both cygwin and native MS-Windows are available via
the XEmacs netinstaller which can be found at
This version of the
installer is 126.96.36.199.2.9.
