Ho Ho Ho!
This is my first beta release. Have mercy. Have fun finding all the
different ways I've messed up.
XEmacs 21.2.6 was a CVS-only release. No one ever got around to
making tarballs. It doesn't seem worth making tarballs now. Diffs
are, however, available to allow folks to patch up.
All of my own patches are finally released. XEmacs should be fairly
stable on Unix, if not yet on Windows.
Andy's subwindow support is in. So all the large patches have been
applied, and XEmacs is still alive.
There certainly are some patches that have not yet been applied, but
should be. Several regular XEmacs contributors, such as myself, have
recently converted to doing direct CVS commits. I encourage others,
Hrvoje in particular, to do the same.
As a complete coincidence, the Latin name for Ares is Mars, so this is
not just a Martin release, but also a Martian one.
