*** 197,202 ****
--- 197,207 ----
  ** shell-mode now supports programmable completion using `pcomplete'.
+ ** The new command `comint-input-previous-argument' in comint-derived
+ modes (shell-mode etc) inserts arguments from previous command lines,
+ like bash's `ESC .' binding.  It is bound by default to `C-c .', but
+ otherwise behaves quite similarly to the bash version.
  ** Controlling the left and right fringe widths.
  The left and right fringe widths can now be controlled by setting the

  command `isearch-yank-word-or-char'.  To restore the old behavior,
  bind C-w to `isearch-yank-word' in `isearch-mode-map'.
+ ** M-x grep now tries to avoid appending `/dev/null' to the command line
+ by using GNU grep `-H' option instead.  M-x grep will automatically
+ detect whether this is possible or not the first time it is invoked.
+ When `-H' is used, the grep command line supplied by the user is passed
+ unchanged to the system to execute, which allows more complicated
+ command lines to be used than was possible before.
+ ** The face-customization widget has been reworked to be less confusing.
+ In particular, when you enable a face attribute using the corresponding
+ check-box, there's no longer a redundant `*' option in value selection
+ for that attribute; the values you can choose are only those which make
+ sense for the attribute.  When an attribute is de-selected by unchecking
+ its check-box, then the (now ignored, but still present temporarily in
+ case you re-select the attribute) value is hidden.
  ** In GUD mode when talking to GDB, C-x C-a C-j "jumps" the program
  counter to the specified source line (the one where point is).
*** 543,548 ****
--- 563,572 ----
  ** Indentation of backquoted forms has been made customizable in the
  cl-indent package.  See the new user option `lisp-backquote-indentation'.
+ ** When emacs is configured to use `xaw3d' scroll-bars, emacs will
+ tell the scroll-bar library which colors to use for the bevels, to
+ prevent the library from using dithering.
  ** New modes and packages

  item was added to the menu bar that makes it easy accessible
  (Help->More Manuals->Introduction to Emacs Lisp).
+ *** The new global minor mode `read-file-name-electric-shadow-mode'
+ modifies the way filenames being entered by the user in the minibuffer are
+ displayed, so that it's clear when part of the entered filename will be
+ ignored due to emacs' filename parsing rules.  The ignored portion can be
+ made dim, invisible, or otherwise less visually noticable.  The display
+ method may be displayed by customizing the variable
+ `read-file-name-electric-shadow-properties'.
  *** The ruler-mode.el library provides a minor mode for displaying an
  "active" ruler in the header line.  You can use the mouse to visually
  change the `fill-column', `window-margins' and `tab-stop-list'
*** 600,605 ****

     (function (lambda ()
               (master-set-slave sql-buffer))))
+ ** Support for `magic cooky' standout modes has been removed.
+ Emacs will still work on terminals that require magic cookies in order
+ to use standout mode, however they will not be able to display
+ mode-lines in inverse-video.
  * Lisp Changes in Emacs 21.3
*** 788,793 ****
--- 825,832 ----
  ** New function minibuffer-selected-window.
+ ** New function `call-process-shell-command'.
  ** File local variables.
  A file local variables list cannot specify a string with text
*** 1044,1049 ****
--- 1083,1094 ----
  *** The new package Ibuffer provides a powerful, completely
  customizable replacement for buff-menu.el.
+ *** The new package button.el implements simple and fast `clickable buttons'
+ in emacs buffers.  `buttons' are much lighter-weight than the `widgets'
+ implemented by widget.el, and can be used by lisp code that doesn't
+ require the full power of widgets.  Emacs uses buttons for such things
+ as help and apropos buffers.
  * Installation Changes in Emacs 21.1
