For those who don't read comp.emacs.xemacs, Andrew Choi has announced a new
port to XEmacs (http://members.shaw.ca/akochoi-xemacs/index.html). This port
is not based on Pitts Jarvis's efforts.
I've been comparing the two versions and I'm most impressed by the new
version. It's a much more conservative effort which makes it easier to
understand. It also builds using the standard './configure ; make ; make
install' sequence rather than the existing convoluted process. I find the
combination attractive to work on. Others may think so too.
I'd like this version to be adopted as the MacOS port with a view to
incorporating it into the mainline in the nearish future.
