EDB 1.32 available

From: Thien-Thi Nguyen
Subject: EDB 1.32 available
Date: Tue, 10 Jan 2017 18:27:00 +0100

release notes:

  Lots of platform surfing, only a few small functional changes.
  Probably support for GNU Emacs 22 and 23 will be dropped in a
  future 1.x release (which may be quick in coming if any botches
  surface now).  If you still use EDB there, let me know soon.

  We welcome shoichi takasaki and Leo to the THANKS file.  :-D


README excerpt:

  This directory contains EDB, the Emacs Database.
  EDB was written by Michael Ernst <address@hidden>,
  and is being maintained by Thien-Thi Nguyen <address@hidden>.

NEWS for 1.32 (2016-12-24):

  - Changes in distribution / build

    - New tarball format: .tar.lz

      (This is in addition to the .tar.gz file.)

      If you have GNU tar, you can use "tar xf" and it will DTRT.
      If not, you can use "lzip -dc TARBALL | tar xf -" to unpack
      the .tar.lz, or "gzip -dc TARBALL | tar xf -" for the .tar.gz.

    - New support for ‘DESTDIR’

      Both "make install" and "make installcheck" are now sensitive to
      ‘DESTDIR’.  This is to support distro packaging.

    - New support for "make uninstall"

      Note that this is also sensitive to ‘DESTDIR’ (see above).

    - Portability tweaks

      EDB now cleanly builds and passes "make check" for those Emacs
      versions that have cl-lib and lexical binding, while retaining
      (we hope) full functionality for those w/o.  This release was
      lightly tested w/ GNU Emacs 23.4, 24.3, 24.4, 25.1 and a late
      2016 checkout from the Git repo.

      Here, "cleanly" means w/o errors and warnings -- automatically
      suppressed are the "cl package required at runtime" warning, and
      the "global/dynamic var `VAR' lacks a prefix" warning (for VAR ∈
      {database, ignored}).

      If you see any errors or warnings, that's a bug -- please report!

    - Spurious rebuild suppressed

      Previously, "make" would spuriously rebuild doc/, a
      potentially errorful situation if you don't have the right TeX
      tools installed.  Now, doc/ rebuild on "make" only
      happens if doc/refcard.tex changes.

  - Changes in functionality

    - Bugfix: ‘db-copy-region-as-kill’

      Previously, ‘db-copy-region-as-kill’ (bound to ‘M-w’ in Database
      Edit mode) only called ‘interprogram-cut-function’ when the last
      command was ‘db-kill-region’ (bound to ‘C-w’ Database Edit mode).
      Now it does so in all cases.

  - Changes in documentation

    - New support for manual in Postscript and PDF

      In the doc/ subdir, you can do "make" and "make edb.pdf"
      to build the manual in Postscript and PDF formats, respectively.

    - Paragraphs indented for non-Info formats

      Previously, the manual's paragraphs were never indented, for any
      output format.  Now, non-indentation is limited to Info format.

    - Documentation for edbibtex included

      Specifically, examples/edbibtex/

  - Tools used for bootstrap/maintenance
