Yes, although it was released over a year ago: 2013-11-07. The current
still has 4.13. Not sure if I should wait and hope Pat upgrades, or
just disable makeinfo and release as is.
First - thanks for your efforts. I'm sorry to catch you off-guard
with my switchover to texinfo 5.
My rationale was this: since texinfo 5 is incompatible with texinfo 4,
and since XEmacs 21.5 (and some of the packages) have moved to texinfo
5, and many (most?) distros (including cygwin) ship texinfo 5, I
decided to bite the bullet and move to texinfo 5.
I think you should build your own version of texinfo 5 and release the
XEmacs 21.4 built against texinfo 5. That way, when slackware updates
to texinfo 5, you will be all set.
