User-agent: Gnus/5.1007 (Gnus v5.10.7) Emacs/21.4 (gnu/linux)

This release integrates William Xu's patch to use a Unix domain socket
instead of TCP.  .tar.gz and .deb are both available at; NEWS is below.


* Enhancements

** Unix domain socket operation supported

It is now possible to tell the GDS server to listen on a Unix domain
socket instead of a TCP socket.  This is done by customizing the Emacs
variable `gds-server-socket-type'.

The main advantage of using a Unix domain socket is that if you start
up a second Emacs, which loads GDS and so starts up a second GDS
server, this second server will steal the listen socket from the first
one.  Whereas with TCP, the second server's startup will fail.

The GDS client code tries to connect over both TCP and a Unix socket,
so doesn't need any configuration to tell it which to try.
