*** Graphing commands (`g f' etc.) now work on MS-Windows, if you have
the native Windows port of Gnuplot version 3.8 or later installed.
** Calendar and diary

*** Fancy diary display is now the default.
If you prefer the simple display, customize `diary-display-function'.

* Lisp changes in Emacs 23.2
** make-network-socket can now also create `seqpacket' Unix sockets.
** New function `completion-in-region' to use the standard completion
facilities on a particular region of text.
+++
** The 4th arg to all-completions (aka hide-spaces) is declared obsolete.
** All the default-FOO variables that hold the default value of the FOO
variable, are now declared obsolete.
---
** read-file-name-predicate is obsolete. It was used to pass the predicate
to read-file-name-internal because read-file-name-internal abused its `pred'
argument to pass the current directory, but this hack is not needed
any more.
** read-key is a function halfway between read-event and read-key-sequence.
It reads a single key, but obeys input and escape sequence decoding.
** Frame parameter changes
+++
*** You can give the `fullscreen' frame parameter the value `maximized'.
This maximizes the frame.
+++
*** The new frame parameter `sticky' makes Emacs frames sticky in
virtual desktops.

** completion-base-size is obsoleted by completion-base-position.
** Completion changes
*** completion-base-size is obsoleted by completion-base-position.
This change causes a few backward incompatibilities, mostly with
choose-completion-string-functions where the `mini-p' argument has
been replaced by a `base-position' argument, and where the `base-size'
argument is now always nil.
*** New function `completion-in-region' to use the standard completion
facilities on a particular region of text.
+++
*** The 4th arg to all-completions (aka hide-spaces) is declared obsolete.
*** completion-annotate-function specifies how to compute annotations
for completions displayed in *Completions*.
** Minibuffer changes

** Changes to file-manipulation functions
+++
*** `delete-directory' has an optional parameter RECURSIVE.
+++
*** New function `copy-directory', which copies a directory recursively.
** called-interactively-p now takes one argument and replaces interactive-p
which is now marked obsolete.
** New function set-advertised-calling-convention makes it possible
to obsolete arguments as well as make some arguments mandatory.
** eval-next-after-load is obsolete.
** New hook `after-load-functions' run after loading an Elisp file.
** You can control which binding is preferentially shown in menus and
docstrings by adding a `:advertised-binding' property to the corresponding
command's symbol. That property can hold a single binding or a list
of bindings.
** New macro with-silent-modifications to tweak text properties without
affecting the buffer's modification state.
** All the default-FOO variables that hold the default value of the FOO
variable, are now declared obsolete.
** Network and process changes
** read-key is a function halfway between read-event and read-key-sequence.
It reads a single key, but obeys input and escape sequence decoding.
** start-process-shell-command and start-file-process-shell-command
*** start-process-shell-command and start-file-process-shell-command
now only take a single `command' argument.
** The variable `process-file-side-effects' shall be bound to nil, if
*** The variable `process-file-side-effects' shall be bound to nil, if
a `process-file' call does not change a remote file. By this, file
name handlers like Tramp can apply optimizations.
*** make-network-socket can now also create `seqpacket' Unix sockets.
** Loading changes
*** eval-next-after-load is obsolete.
*** New hook `after-load-functions' run after loading an Elisp file.
** Byte compilation changes

*** Changing the file-names generated by byte-compilation by redefining
the function `byte-compile-dest-file' before loading bytecomp.el is obsolete.
Instead, customize byte-compile-dest-file-function.

*** `byte-compile-warnings' has new members, `constants' and `suspicious'.
