This is the `README-0.95.1' file of GNU eev. Author and version: Eduardo Ochs, 2007may15. This file is in the Public Domain. Hello! I don't use any version control system on eev (yet), and I was tired of keeping so much cruft in it... So: I'm releasing eev-0.95.1 now, even with all its rough edges, just to have these obsolete files stored in some official tarball - and out of my sight. Here are some of the things that I plan to change on eev soon (as always, for some value of "soon"): * the code for eepitch in eev-steps.el will be replaced by the new version that is now at eev-mini-steps.el; * several functions in eev that create or run external processes will be changed to use find-callprocess, find-bgprocess, and find-comintprocess functions (see eev-mini.el), * I got a cleaner version of code-c-d - it accepts keywords (like :grep) and is extensible like the one in eev.el, but it is almost as simple as the one currently in eev-mini.el; the one in eev.el will be replaced by the new one - and maybe I will move it to a separate file, but I'm not sure about this yet, * all functions like find-estring and find-sh will be based on find-eoutput-rerun and find-eoutput-reuse, like in eev-mini.el, * a new stepper: eexterm. It will corresponds to what is now eechannel-xterm (with some name changes, obviously), but we will stop stressing so much that it is built on top of eechannel, * several of the HTML files in the documentation are currently being generated using htmlize.el and some ugly hacks (htmlize-eev.el and htmlize-all.el); I'm planning to generate them with blogme3 instead, * the HTML version of the article is currently being generated with blogme3, and the TeXinfo-ed version is generated from another source... with some changes on blogme3 it should be possible to generate both from a single source. This will take longer to do than other items above, though. Cheers, more soon, Eduardo Ochs 2007may14 --snip--snip-- Old stuff: --snip--snip-- This is the `README-0.95.1' file of GNU eev. Author and version: Eduardo Ochs, 2006sep27. This file is in the Public Domain. Note: Eev-0.95.1 is not ready yet, but its README is! Read on... Eev-0.95.1 is an interim release! Several files in eev-current were obsolete and had to be removed, and I wanted to save their last versions somewhere before removing them... I don't use CVS, so the right thing to do was to create a numbered release - 0.95.1 - containing everything, and soon after releasing eev-0.95.1 I would remove the obsolete files from eev-current. Almost half of the elisp files will be removed: To be kept To be removed ========== ============= eev.el eev-dev.el eev-insert.el eev-insert-old.el eev-steps.el eev-walk.el eev-browse-url.el eev-ttp.el eev-compose.el compose.el eev-glyphs.el glyphs.el eev-math-glyphs.el eev-langs.el From the above list of elisp files to be kept only `eev-langs.el' is still very terse, with very few comments and docstrings, and has to be rewritten; all the other elisp files in the "to be kept" column should have enough comments by now - I've been working on that in the last weeks -, and I think that they are quite close to being of Emacs quality. My plan is to release 0.95.1, then do some tests on the new eev-current to check if it is self-contained - at the moment it probably still has a few calls to functions that are defined in my .emacs - then release a 0.95.2, then contact the GNU/FSF people again to include eev in GNU Emacs. About the htmlized versions of elisp files: now anyone running CVS GNU Emacs on a decent OS should be able to reconstruct the html files by running "make htmls", so they will be dropped out from eev-current soon. They are generated by these two auxiliary .el files: htmlize-all.el htmlize-eev.el Other important things to do soon: update my e-mail address and FSF's snail-mail address in the headers of many files; update the NEWS file; convert the article about eev to TeXinfo; rewrite the sections of the article that discuss the single-steppers; etc, etc, etc.
