GNU Emacs 22.1 released!

Posted in Emacs, Linux, Techie stuff at 11:26 by theBlackDragon

This morning I check in on #fvwm and the first thing I notice is the following:

03/06|01:03:06 < Hun> theBlackDragon: aaaaaaaaaaah!
03/06|01:03:13 < Hun> e22 has been released!

So I run off to the Emacs homepage, but nothing to be found about a new release. Hmm.
So what can you do? Check usenet of course, and sure enough on gnu.emacs.devel (e-mail addresses removed for obvious reasons):

I was going to mouth off about premature announcements and being
 careless about release numbers, but checking on the ftp server have
 found that the tarball for Emacs 22.1 has been uploaded.
Did I miss the announcement on this list?

And sure enough, there it was, on the GNU FTP server, all shiny and new: an Emacs 22.1 tarball, the changes from 21.x are a little bit too numerous to sum up here, I’d say just upgrade or read the ChangeLog.
