GNU Emacs 21.1 has been released.  It is available on the GNU ftp
sites at ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/ and the mirrors of that site (see
below for a list.)

  Emacs 21.1 includes support for proportional fonts: characters in a
line can be of variable width and lines can have variable heights.  It
also supports including images in text.  Emacs 21.1 adds a number of
new user-interface features: it has tool bars for executing frequently
used commands, it supports native scroll bars, it displays tool tips,
and it has a mouse-sensitive mode line.  Even on text-only terminals,
Emacs 21.1 supports colors and other display attributes.

  Bug reports should go to address@hidden  You can use the
function M-x report-emacs-bug to do this.

  Executables for various systems and information about using gzip can
be found at the URL http://www.gzip.org.
  With the release of version 21.1, the Emacs development sources are
accessible via anonymous CVS from http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/emacs/.
The anonymous CVS services are provided by Savannah, GNU's SourceForge-like
system for project collaboration.

  A public mailing list `emacs-devel' was created for for Emacs
developers; please see <URL:http://mail.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/>.
