<#secure method=pgpmime mode=sign>

I’m delighted to announce a new release of GNU Zile. This release fixes some
minor bugs for users, but mostly features code cleanup and build fixes and
updates. The release is most of interest to those who want to build Zile for
themselves (for example, it fixes a bug that prevented building on some
systems with multiple versions of Curses installed), and for packagers.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify zile-2.4.15.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 68089F7380EE4A00

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.1
  Gnulib v0.1-3937-gd9e1d5c10


* Noteworthy changes in release 2.4.15 (2020-11-05) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  Ensure term.h matches [n]curses[w].h (fix #58880).

  Fix a potential crash in the Lisp “interpreter”.

  query-replace no longer prints the number of replacements on error.

** Build-related

  Various improvements and fixes, including updates to gnulib and bootstrap,
  improvements to the build instructions, and the removal of obsolete files.

  Use automake’s parallel test harness to run the tests.

  Make running the tests with Emacs optional. A lot of them do not pass any
  more with recent Emacsen, but this is not an urgent problem.

  Use ASAN instead of Valgrind for memory checking: this makes the tests run
  much faster.

  Remove the use of texinfo markup from docstrings.

  tbl_vars.h no longer needs to be generated from, as no
  substitutions were being made.

** Miscellaneous

  Some code clean-up, including a simplification to the calling convention
  for C functions that implement editor commands.

  Update some docstrings to match Emacs 27.1.
