GNU Emacs 21, the latest major version of the GNU flagship text editor, is now available. It boasts a horde of new features, including an extensible toolbar and a new redisplay engine that can handle variable-size characters, embedded pixmaps, and color in console mode.

Tarballs are available from the GNU ftp site. The list of mirrors is here. CVS can now be browsed from GNU Savannah.

Note that if you use Calc, the powerful RPN calculator for Emacs, you may have to upgrade it, as changes in Elisp have broken older versions. The Calc package in Debian unstable works fine.
