[emacs-announce] Emacs pretest 26.0.90 is out

Nicolas Petton-2
Hi!

The first pretest for what will be the 26.1 release of Emacs
(the extensible text editor) is available at

  ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/pretest/emacs-26.0.90.tar.xz

You can get the PGP signature at

  ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/pretest/emacs-26.0.90.tar.xz.sig

Please give it as much testing as you can.

As always, if you encounter problems building or using Emacs,
send a report to [hidden email] with full details
(if possible, use M-x report-emacs-bug).

Thanks for helping to test Emacs.

Nico

Windows Binaries are now available at:

http://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/pretest/windows/

For 26.0.90, there is a with-deps and without-deps zip file. This is
new, so feedback is welcome.

For those on Windows, please test!

What _are_ those *-deps zip files?
What does "deps" stand for?

Got it.  And now they are (indirectly) answered in
this announcement thread too.  Thank you.

(Except that "the dependencies" is defined nowhere.
You have to guess what might be meant by that.)

Yes, this is true.

My plan for the next pre-test is to turn these around. So
"emacs-$version.zip" will contain all the dependencies while
"emacs-$version-no-deps.zip" will not. Then people who don't know what
to choose will get bells and whistles by default.

It would be quite nice to add a "runemacs.bat" file at top level also, I
think, but it's probably too late in the release cycle for this.

Phil

What would be the contents of the batch file?

There's a file there named "emacs-latest-x64_64.zip". Should that be "-x86_64"?

Thanks Phil.
