** Comint (subshell) changes
By default, comint no longer uses the variable `comint-prompt-regexp' to
distiguish prompts from user-input. Instead, it notices which parts of
the text were output by the process, and which entered by the user, and
attaches `field' properties to allow emacs commands to use this information.
Common movement commands, notably beginning-of-line, respect field
boundaries in a fairly natural manner.
To disable this feature, and use the old behavior, set the variable
`comint-use-prompt-regexp-instead-of-fields' to a non-nil value.
Comint now includes new features to send commands to running processes
and redirect the output to a designated buffer or buffers.
