MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. In 2010, the version control system (VCS) of Emacs was upgraded from CVS to Bazaar. In 2011, the MH-E team followed suit and upgraded the MH-E repository at SourceForge from CVS to Bazaar as well. The result is version 8.3 of MH-E, which includes needed changes to the build scripts. Otherwise, this is a small release that includes mostly internal changes from the Emacs team. The MH-E manual for MH-E 8.3 contains updates for the mairix and namazu examples. 2011-09-21 Bill Wohler <wohler@newt.com> Release MH-E manual version 8.3. * mh-e.texi: (VERSION, EDITION, UPDATED, UPDATE-MONTH): Update for release 8.3.

Emacs comes prepackaged with MH-E; the files in this package may be more recent however. To ascertain the version of MH-E in your version of Emacs and to determine whether it is necessary to install these files, run the command "C-h i m mh-e RET" within Emacs. This should bring you to the top of the MH-E documentation which shows the version of the documentation which is the same as the version of the software for which it was written. Use the command "M-x mh-version" within Emacs to see which version of the software you are running. If this package contains a more recent version of the MH-E documentation which is compatible with the version of the software that you're running, read on. The Bazaar MH-E manual is built into Bazaar Emacs, so if you use Bazaar Emacs, then you have no need of this release. You are already have the latest version of the manual. This version of the MH-E documentation will appear in GNU Emacs 24.1. * INSTALL ** Extract the tarball. If you don't have GNU tar, use gzip to uncompress the tarball and drop the `z' option. tar xzf mh-e-doc-8.3.tgz ** Build the desired documentation. The Texinfo source can produce documentation in Emacs' info format, HTML format for viewing via a browser, and PDF formats for printing. First, go into the mh-e-doc-8.3 directory and then follow the appropriate directions below. *** info Run `make info'. This creates a sub-directory called `info', builds the info version of the documentation, and deposits it in that directory. You need the program `makeinfo' to do this. To view the Info node `mh-e', Find out where your existing info files are located. Assuming your existing info files are in `/usr/share/info', set the INFOPATH environment variable to: /path/to/mh-e-doc-8.3/info:/usr/share/info Then run "C-h i g (mh-e) RET" (in Emacs). *** HTML Run `make html'. This creates a sub-directory called `html', builds the HTML version of the documentation, and deposits it in that directory. You need the programs `makeinfo' to do this. Use a browser and point it at "/path/to/mh-e-doc-8.3/html/index.html" to view the documentation. *** PDF Run `make pdf'. This builds the PDF version of the documentation, and names it `mh-e.pdf'. You need the program `texi2pdf', `makeinfo', and `pdftex' or `pdfetex' to do this. You can then either view the documentation with a tool such as `gv', `gpdf', `ggv', `xpdf', or print it. The file is "/path/to/mh-e-doc-8.3/pdf/mh-e.pdf". *** Everything Run `make all' or just `make'. * BAZAAR MH-E MANUAL INSTALL After checking out the doc module, follow any of the steps that apply to you in INSTALL above. In each case, running `make' will try to create a symbolic link from `doc' to the Emacs source in your MH-E source tree, specifically `../src/emacs/trunk'. If your Emacs source is located in another directory, add `EMACS_SRC=/path/to/emacs/trunk' to your make command line. * ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ** This documentation is also available in the following forms: *** HTML & PDF An online version of the documentation is available here: http://mh-e.sourceforge.net/manual/ *** Source The source for the documentation can be obtained here: https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=13357 ** Mailing Lists, Bug Reports and other Support Please see http://mh-e.sourceforge.net/.
