Apologies for the mass mailing, but I'm not sure when I'll next be
able to send out any email.
My bloody hard drive broke! It's on its way to Thailand (of all
places) and it didn't want to take me with it. :-( They can't tell me
how long I'll be without a drive.
This is going to mean that my presence on the 'net is going to be
*extremely* limited. Rendhalver is currently baby-sitting the data
that I was able to get off the drive and he says that I'm welcome to
come over and check email, and that sort of stuff. Which will
probably happen once a week or fortnight.
If anyone needs to get in contact with me urgently and you don't mind
paying for an international phone call, Rendhalver has my numbers.
I'll do my best to get a beta release (XEmacs) out the door in a
couple of weeks.
Some outstdanding issues: (my apologies if any of this has already
been taken care of)
Jerry - What's happening with that big patch of yours (lisp float
type?)? Has Ben gotten back to you on that. I'd like to see
that patch go in.
Has anyone else reported the same problem as me with the
postgresql module and error-checking=all? Have you had
Ben - You introduced a bug just before you went overseas (welcome
back, BTW). It's something to do with how XEmacs is handling
sub-processes. My feeling is that it is buffer-related
because it only crops up when dealing with larger amounts of
output/input. For example, using Mailcrypt to GnuPG sign an
email, if the email is short it'll work; but if it's long (20k
or so) it fails. There isn't any error. It just looks like
the sub-process isn't getting any input.
I've spoken with Mike Sperber about this, so perhaps he could
give you more details.
I'd really like this one resolved before the next beta.
Another thing for you, Ben; Why is RET running "LFD" in a
console or -nw? In X it is "newline". It makes using XEmacs
with -nw pretty well impossible. This one has been around
since your initial Great Mule Merge [tm]. It would be
fantastic if you fix that up too, thanks Ben.
Mike - Are there any kkcc issues that need addressing before the next
Bill - Sorry to leave you in the lurch on the MH-E/XEmacs front. I
wasn't able to test that mh-yank-cur-msg thing. Perhaps Peter
could test that for you, I'm pretty sure that he has XEmacs
Eicq People -
One of these days I'll get around to getting Eicq up and
running again. I promise. No, honestly... would I lie to you
guys? Of course, if one of you wanna do some work on it, I
won't stop you. :-)
Just yell if you need anything, or yell at Rendhalver if you need it fast.
