+The default for `mail-user-agent' is now message-user-agent, so the

 * New Modes and Packages in Emacs 23.2
+** CEDET (the Collection of Emacs Development Tools) is now in Emacs.
+This is a collection of packages to aid with using Emacs as an IDE
+(integrated development environment):
+*** The Semantic package allows the use of parsers to intelligently
+edit and navigate source code.  Parsers for C/C++, Java, Javascript,
+and several other languages are included by default, and Semantic can
+also interface with external tools such as GNU Global and GNU Idutils.
+To enable Semantic, use the global minor mode `semantic-mode'.
+See the Semantic manual for details.
+*** EDE (Emacs Development Environment) is a package for managing code
+projects, including features such as automatic Makefile generation.
+To enable EDE, use the minor mode `global-ede-mode'.
+See the EDE manual for details.
+*** SRecode is a library for recoding Semantic tags back into source
+code.  It is currently used by some parts of Semantic and EDE; in the
+future, it may be used for code generation features.
+*** The EIEIO library implements a subset of the Common Lisp Object
+System (CLOS).  It is used by the other CEDET packages.
 ** mpc.el is a front end for the Music Player Daemon.  Run it with M-x mpc.
 ** htmlfontify.el turns a fontified Emacs buffer into an HTML page.
 ** js.el is a new major mode for JavaScript files.
 ** imap-hash.el is a new library to address IMAP mailboxes as hashtables.
