Got around to building 21.5.29 from a full tarball. Here's a list of
some of the things that I've noticed after using 21.5.29 for a an hour
doing things I normally do.
o The toolbar in GNUS doesn't seem to disappear anymore. This used to
happen all the time in 21.5.28. Hurray!
o Whenever I press space in the GNUS groups buffer to select a
newgroup, I get the error message:
Wrong type argument: arrayp, #s(char-table type generic data ())
This only happens the first time I press space on the newgroup. If
I press space again, it all works.
o (setq x-pointer-shape "left_ptr") is broken, but I think that's
probably been broken in my .xemacs for ages but I never noticed.
(Gotta read the manual to figure out how to do this again. In an
other part of .xemacs, I was using (set-glyph-image
modeline-pointer-glyph "fleur"), but that doesn't work either.)
o I used to use recycle.xpm as my gc-pointer-shape, but I note that
that doesn't work either. (I think that's also been broken for ages
and I never noticed.)
o As I mentioned in my build-report, build-report doesn't work.
o Configure complains about not recognizing --with-mule, but it seems
to do the necessary things to make a mule build. I can use other
character sets and use different input methods.
o On linux, the resulting Makefile wants to the utilities like hexl,
movemail, yow, etc., into /usr/local/lib/xemacs-21.5.b29, which I
don't have access to. (I guess I need to specify some configure
option for this now? I don't recall having to do this, but it's
been a while since I've done a build.)
Other than these issues, 21.5.29 works just fine for me so far.
