This is not entirely true, still patches, even for the development
branch are sent to Xemacs beta, but alas, the end is in sight.

What can I say, I am the last auctec-Xemacs Mohican and even I switched
to 80 % of my time to GNU emacs. And even in the last years, as the
official Xemacs pkg maintainer I have received very little feedback from
Xemacs auctex users (they exist I wounder). In any case, I would like to
thank the auctex team for supporting Xemacs all these years, even
without any active Xemacs developer in the team. I stayed with Xemacs
mostly because of x-symbol but now GNU emacs 25 supports prettifying.

Which brings me to different question, when will 25 official be
released? Because I think the documentation should say something about
prettifying (but again maybe I am the only one who like that feature).
