Description :
XEmacs is a highly customizable open source text editor and

GNU Emacs.  Its emphasis is on modern graphical user interface support
and an open software development model, similar to Linux.

Update Information:

This update fixes a font problem when running on a TTY.  It also abandons OSS in
favor of ALSA support.  Bignum support has been enabled in this update.
Finally, the desktop entry has been made consistent with that of Emacs.

* Tue Nov  3 2009 Jerry James <loganjerry at gmail.com> - 21.5.29-6
- Make the desktop file consistent with Emacs (bz 532296).
* Wed Oct 28 2009 Jerry James <loganjerry at gmail.com> - 21.5.29-5
- Bring back the courier font patch; that was a red herring.
- Really, seriously fix bz 512623 with a TTY font patch.

* Wed Sep 23 2009 Jerry James <loganjerry at gmail.com> - 21.5.29-4
- Final fix for bz 512623, which is actually two bugs, because ...
