User-agent: Wanderlust/2.14.0 (Africa) SEMI/1.14.6 (Maruoka) FLIM/1.14.8 (Shijō) APEL/10.6 Emacs/22.3 (sparc-sun-solaris2.8) MULE/5.0 (SAKAKI)

The 27th update of the Mac port, which is experimental/hackers-only,
is now available from


This version is based on Emacs 23.3b.  Again, the Mac port itself is
still experimental/hackers-only.

Some random notes:

  * A few users asked me about the status/plans of the Mac port based
    on Emacs 24.  Currently I don't have any development branches for

  * The *Carbon* port (based on Emacs 22) executed on Mac OS X 10.7.2
    has a known crash problem when using some features that are
    actually implemented in Cocoa: file dialogs, font panel (via M-x
    mac-font-panel RET), or looking up in dictionary (via
    Command-Control-D or double-tapping a trackpad with three
    fingers).  I think this is not a bug at the application side but a
    problem in toll-free bridge handling in the Core Text framework,
    and have already reported to Apple.  Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.7.1
    didn't have this problem.

** Fixed bugs

*** Several redisplay bugs found in the trunk.
Backport revno 106534, 106517(Bug#10119), 106357, 106345(Bug#9496),
106279(Bug#9947), 106223, and 106220.

*** Several xfns.c bugs found in the trunk.
Adapt revno 106352(Bug#9999), 106293(Bug#9943), 106278(Bug#9943) and
105310 to macfns.c.

** Improvements

*** Toolbars can be hidden/shown from the context menu on Mac OS X
10.7, which doesn't have a toggle button on the title bar.
