Fatally short of time...

The new radius documentation is available. The main page is now xhtml 1.0 (as well as radius homepage)1) . I wish I would be able to convert documentation files to xhtml as well, but that would require either updating texi2html (I wouldn't like to do this) or texinfo (I'd love to, should the time permit)...

Anyway, the package itself is ready for the release. Today I have fixed a small bug that manifested itself on BSD systems, and have given a final polish to the docs. I'm going to release the stuff before Nov 06.

1) By the way, I'm working on the xmltools translator for producing standard GNU web pages (working name boilerplate).

Yesterday I released version 1.3 of GNU Radius. I wish Jordi updated Catalan localization. It was very important to me. Pity...

More work on rmail.el. People from emacs-devel have supplied some fresh ideas and RMS have asked me to update documentation as well:

Documentation is the castor oil of programming. Managers know it must be good because the programmers hate it so much.
