Release     : 2.fc11
URL         : http://www.xemacs.org/

Description :
XEmacs is a highly customizable open source text editor and
application development system.  It is protected under the GNU General
Public License and related to other versions of Emacs, in particular
GNU Emacs.  Its emphasis is on modern graphical user interface support
and an open software development model, similar to Linux.

This package contains XEmacs built for X Windows with MULE support.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update fixes multiple buffer overflows when reading large image files, or
maliciously created image files whose headers misrepresent the actual image
size.    The update also addresses multiple font issues, some of which cause
warnings on startup.  Some warnings remain, however, unless an ISO8859-13 fonts
(e.g., terminus) is installed.  Also note that some warnings remain on Rawhide
pending a resolution for bz 507637.
