goto announcement

From: "XEmacs 21.4 Release Manager" <stephen@xemacs.org>
To: XEmacs Developers and Testers <xemacs-beta@xemacs.org>
Subject: XEmacs 21.2.47 "Zephir" is released
Date: Sun, 15 Apr 2001 03:23:05 +0900

XEmacs 21.2.47 "Zephir" is released.

The CVS tag for the release is r21-2-47 (or the "moving tag"
r21-2-latest-beta).  Tarballs are available in the usual place
ftp://ftp.xemacs.org/pub/xemacs/beta/xemacs-21.2.  There are no PGP
signatures for this release.

21.2.47 "Zephir" contains a few changes to 21.2.46 "Urania".  See the
individual ChangeLogs for details.

However, its primary purpose is practice for me in creating a
distribution, uploading it, and announcing it, preparatory to the
release of 21.4.0.  If you have time, I would appreciate it if a few
people would verify that the tarballs can be downloaded, the CVS tags
can be used for checkout, and that the resulting source trees can be

There will be another pre-release April 15 Japan time, containing a
few last-minute patches and the release documentation omitted from
this prerelease, followed by the release of 21.4.0 late on the 15th

Important notice for CVS users:

The CVS Repository structure has been rationalized thanks to Michael
Sperber.  The development code is now on the trunk.  There are several
active branches, each with per-release tags of the form "r21-1-14"
(major-minor-patchlevel), and a branch tag which always gives the tip:

Branch                                    Branch tag       Release tag
Development branch (new, 21.5):           none (on trunk)  r21-5-xx
"Gamma" prerelease (old 21.2, now 21.4):  release-21-4     r21-2-xx
"Stable" release (21.1):                  release-21-1     r21-1-xx

Note that the "gamma" code has branched off from the trunk as
"release-21-4," but the individual tags for its prereleases are

To update an existing CVS checkout to the trunk (development), use the
-A flag to cvs update, or simply checkout with no -r flag.  To update
or checkout to one of the other branches, use the -r flag with the
appropriate branch tag.  http://cvs.xemacs.org/ has more information.
It is in the process of being updated, so some information about tags
may be inaccurate for a few days.
