** The option --script FILE runs Emacs in batch mode and loads FILE.
It is useful for writing Emacs Lisp shell script files, because they

** The option --directory DIR now modifies `load-path' immediately.
Directories are added to the front of `load-path' in the order they
appear on the command line. For example, with this command line:
emacs -batch -L .. -L /tmp --eval "(require 'foo)"
Emacs looks for library `foo' in the parent directory, then in /tmp, then
in the other directories in `load-path'. (-L is short for --directory.)

** New function `locate-file' searches for a file in a list of directories.
`locate-file' accepts a name of a file to search (a string), and two
lists: a list of directories to search in and a list of suffixes to
try; typical usage might use `exec-path' and `load-path' for the list
of directories, and `exec-suffixes' and `load-suffixes' for the list
of suffixes. The function also accepts a predicate argument to
further filter candidate files.
One advantage of using this function is that the list of suffixes in
`exec-suffixes' is OS-dependant, so this function will find
executables without polluting Lisp code with OS dependancies.
