Authored by kyrios123 on Mar 23 2020, 7:12 PM.



New features added

  • add zstd support and the automake option, dist-zstd.

Miscellaneous changes

  • automake no longer requires a @setfilename in each .texi file

Bugs fixed

  • When cleaning the compiled python files, '\n' is not used anymore in the substitution text of 'sed' transformations.
  • For make tags, lisp_LISP is followed by the necessary space when used with CONFIG_HEADERS.
  • The automake test no longer fails when localtime and UTC cross a day boundary.
  • Emacsen older than version 25, which require use of byte-compile-dest-file, are supported again.
