* Lisp Changes in Emacs 26.2
** The new function 'read-answer' accepts either long or short answers

** New function 'assoc-delete-all'.
Like 'assq-delete-all', but uses 'equal' for comparison.
** The function 'thing-at-point' behaves as before Emacs 26.1.
The behavior of 'thing-at-point' when called with argument 'list' has
changed in Emacs 26.1, in that it didn't consider text inside comments
and strings as a potential list. This change is now reverted, and
'thing-at-point' behaves like it did before Emacs 26.1.
** To cater to use cases where comments and strings are to be ignored
when looking for a list, the function 'list-at-point' now takes an
optional argument to do so.
