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

The ninth update of the Carbon+AppKit port is now available from


** Improvements

*** When delete-selection-mode is enabled, then the active region is
hidden while the marked text is being shown (so "Reverse conversion"
in Kotoeri looks better).

*** The current cursor position may be returned for a character
position query for text input even if the marked text is not displayed
or handled at the Lisp level yet (so auxiliary windows in AquaSKK 4
are placed better.)

The fourth update of the Mac port, which is experimental/hackers-only,
is also available from


In addition to the improvements above, it has the following changes:

** Fixed bugs

*** Kill/yank in tty frames causes an error.

** Improvements

*** SVG images are supported via WebKit on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
If you have librsvg installed and you want to use WebKit for rendering
SVG images, then you need to specify --without-rsvg as a configure

*** The Mac font backend driver now supports `get_variation_glyphs'
also on Mac OS X 10.4 and earlier.

*** Ideographic Variation Sequences (IVSes) also work for Hiragino
fonts, which don't have a format 14 (Unicode Variation Sequences)
subtable in their cmap table.

The attached screenshot shows a comparison of IVS support for Hiragino
among Emacs 23.1 Mac port (top), Safari, and TextEdit (bottom) on Mac
OS X 10.6.1.  Note that TextEdit on Mac OS X 10.6 can display
different glyphs for variants if you use some font containing a format
14 subtable in its cmap table.
