These instructions are helpful (I didn't know about the NEWS file at that
point) but they are missing `delete-active-region'.  Sure, it's documented
a few paragraphs above, but it doesn't say that it's enabled by default.

For electric-indent-mode, it says:

*** `electric-indent-mode' is now enabled by default.
Typing RET reindents the current line and indents the new line.
`C-j' inserts a newline but does not indent.  In some programming modes,
additional characters are electric (eg `{').

*** New buffer-local `electric-indent-local-mode'.

After a bit of confusion with the argument of electric-indent-mode (nil enabling the mode), I disabled it globally. However, this disabled all other electric characters, too. I couldn't find documented how to revert to the previous behavior where `{' is electric but RET isn't.

From the menu bar, click Options->Customize Emacs->New Options, and
you will be able to see all the options that were added or changed
since some Emacs version.

This doesn't help me here.
