bug#7196: 24.0.50; NEWS item "Selection changes"

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#7196: 24.0.50; NEWS item "Selection changes"
Date: Tue, 12 Oct 2010 07:56:40 -0700

The NEWS item is woefully incomplete.  It doesn't explain much of
anything about the selection changes for Emacs 24 - and they are
radical changes.
Among other things, NEWS should detail the differences from the
previous behavior, and explain clearly how to return to the
previous behavior (exactly, completely).

It is not enough to just give one-liners for a few variables,
such as "`x-select-enable-primary' now defaults to nil."

This should be obvious.  Users and user-level descriptions should
come first, before implementation changes are made.

Windowing system distributor `Microsoft Corp.', version 5.1.2600
