NEWS excerpt:

  - 1.45 | 2004-06-11
    - VC "stay local" feature disabled
        "Stay local" is nice, but backup files are not so nice,
        especially since it seems CVS creates backup files anyway;
        Emacs should just use those instead of polluting cwd, IMHO.
        More importantly, it seems weird that "stay local" and "create
        backup files" are comingled in the first place.  Hmmm.
    - Preferred mode-line style now works again for Emacs 20.7
    - When composing mail, `truncate-lines' is automatically set
    - In Makefile mode, func names such as $(shell ...) are highlighted
    - Opposite paren offscreen no longer displays a message
    - Command `dired-diff' now advised
        For the case where the file in question is ".last-release" and
        the file to diff against is unspecified (user types RET at the
        prompt), `dired-diff' runs the advice `diff-last-release', which
        reads the symbolic tag from .last-release and runs the external
        program `diff-last-release', placing its output in a buffer
        named "*TAG*" (note extra asterisks) in Diff Mode.  Emacs then
        switches to the new buffer.
        The external program `diff-last-release' must determine the
        version control system in use (typically RCS or CVS) and do the
        appropriate full-tree diff.
    - Bugfix: timezone for command `italy-time' no longer hardcoded
        More precisely, the timezone of the computer running Emacs is no
        longer hardcoded -- it's ok to hardcode the timezone for Italy
        since that changes (very) much less frequently.
    - Magic char for sbap closing now C-q
        That is, when square-braces-as-paren mode is enabled, `C-q'
        followed by right square brace closes all the parens from
        current scope stopping at top-level.  The magic char used to be
        space, but that was annoying in practice.
    - New theme for M-x set-theme: vt220
        This is not exactly like the beloved vt220 since colors other
        than "amber" and black are permitted, but it's close enough.
        (Before you know it some crazy nut will probably port Emacs 21
        to VMS... ;-)
    - Variable `fetch-mail-check-ppp' semantics expanded
        This used to be interpreted as a simple boolean.  Now, it can
        name an external program to use to check the ppp connection.
        For backwards compatibility, a value of t means use program
        "ppp-check".  A value of nil means don't check, as before.
    - `M-x fetch-mail' now ignores POP specs in `rmail-primary-inbox-list'
    - Programming environment setup less surprising
        Part of `my-prog-env' includes a series of calls to hideshow
        functions which move point.  These have now been wrapped w/
        `save-excursion'.  [Probably it's better to fix hideshow to
        do this (optionally), itself.]
    - Dropped import: 5x5.el
    - Dropped import: indirect-emacs-lisp-buffer.el
    - Dropped import: sure-tags.el
    - Dropped import: verilog-mode.el
    - Dropped: low-stress/zenirc-time-diff.el
        You can use `time-subtract' from time-date.el instead.
    - Installation removes `.../.emacs/giblet'
        Snapshots of ~/.emacs are not generally useful.  "make install"
        now looks for and deletes:
        including the (horrendously named) `.emacs' subdirectory.
