Oops. Looks like my announcement generating scripts broke, and the
whole "brief list of changes" went missing. I'll fix that, but all
the information is in the ChangeLogs, so I won't spam the list with a

Better yet, download the release, check out CHANGES-beta, then build
and M-x build-report!
* XEmacs 21.5.23 "daikon" is released.
"daikon" is the twenty-fourth in the VEGETABLE series.
The successor to XEmacs 21.5.22 "cucumber", "daikon" adds mouse
generated from any color image format supported by XEmacs (adding the
modern GIF, JPEG, PNG, or TIFF formats to the increasingly rare XPM
format already supported). Support for building with arbitrary precision
arithmetic (GMP), and the Berkeley db, PostgreSQL, and LDAP databases
has been provided for native Windows NT builds. Unexec support for _LP64
architectures was fixed (at least for FreeBSD).
A number of LISP APIs and commands have been synced to conform to GNU's
(unreleased) Emacs 22. Garbage collection now triggers on a threshold
relative to total memory allocated, which reduces the frequency.
gc-cons-threshold also got raised to 2 million. maybe it should be
higher; 2MB isn't much these days :)
