** M-x grep now tries to avoid appending `/dev/null' to the command line
by using GNU grep `-H' option instead. M-x grep will automatically
detect whether this is possible or not the first time it is invoked.
When `-H' is used, the grep command line supplied by the user is passed
unchanged to the system to execute, which allows more complicated
command lines to be used than was possible before.
** The face-customization widget has been reworked to be less confusing.
In particular, when you enable a face attribute using the corresponding
check-box, there's no longer a redundant `*' option in value selection
for that attribute; the values you can choose are only those which make
sense for the attribute. When an attribute is de-selected by unchecking
its check-box, then the (now ignored, but still present temporarily in
case you re-select the attribute) value is hidden.

*** The new global minor mode `read-file-name-electric-shadow-mode'
modifies the way filenames being entered by the user in the minibuffer are
displayed, so that it's clear when part of the entered filename will be
ignored due to emacs' filename parsing rules. The ignored portion can be
made dim, invisible, or otherwise less visually noticable. The display

*** The new package button.el implements simple and fast `clickable buttons'
in emacs buffers. `buttons' are much lighter-weight than the `widgets'
implemented by widget.el, and can be used by lisp code that doesn't
require the full power of widgets. Emacs uses buttons for such things
as help and apropos buffers.
