What's new?


   * Update note [important]:

     You need to rebuild rep-gtk and sawfish against this version of
     librep, because of an ABI-change.

     Your lisp files have to be byte-compiled again, too.

   * Halfway improved `debug-on-error' and `backtrace-on-error' [Teika

     Previously, setting these values to `t' triggered the debugger /
     backtracer even if the error was signalled inside of
     `condition-case'.  This behavior can still be obtained by setting
     them to the symbol `always'.

     Now, if they're `t', the debugger / backtracer is invoked only if
     the control is not inside of any `condition-case'. Notice that the
     condition is NOT if the error is actually handled by an error
     handler. It is not the best, but we can't improve it.

     The default value of `backtrace-on-error' is now `t'.

   * When you evaluate a closure interactively, the module it belongs
     to is printed, too. [Teika kazura]

   * Improved functions' docstring support [Teika Kazura]

     Handling of functions' docstring is improved. The revised
     `documenation' function is ensured to return the docstring of
     functions, macros, and special forms (*note Docstrings::).

     Previously, fuctions' docstrings of byte-compiled user-files (eg: were lost, but not now.

   * New function `subr-structure' [Teika Kazura]
     It returns the module a subr belongs to.

   * Major documentation revision [Teika kazura]

     Reorganized documentation files. Many capital letter name files
     were updated or merged into the info.

     New entries: *Note Crash course for Elisp users::, *Note
     Closures::, on leading tilde in a filename and tarball access
     (*note File Handlers::), fully revised the module section (*note
     Modules::), improved description on invocation (*note
     Invocation::), improved "fluid" and `let' descriptions (*note
     Fluid Variables::, and *note Local Variables::), improved the read
     syntax of character (*note Characters::). Module names are
     supplied for all functions.

     Supplied documentation to some functions: Input stream functions
     `peek-char', `read-char' (*note Input Functions::), list functions
     `remove-if', `remove-if-not' (*note Mapping Functions::),
     `table-size' (*note Hash Tables::), `setcar', `setcdr' and `cdddr'
     family (*note Cons Cells::), `assoc-regexp' (*note Association

   * `define-special-variable' is replaced by `defvar-setq' [Teika

     The former is still valid, but it's a very confusing name,
     therefore the latter is introduced.

   * Makefile's uninstall rule has been fixed [Christopher Bratusek]
