I'm in the process of upgrading from 19.33 to 20.6. Three things I've noticed: 1. emx-meta.el seemed to be missing. I copied it over from my 19.33 setup. 2. 19.33 would sometimes crash reading news with gnus. 20.6 was much worse. I just used emxstack to increase the stack from 8 MB to 32 MB and I think that may have fixed it. (Haven't run long enough to be sure.) 3. Some .elc files in lisp\gnus are older than the corresponding .el files. When I byte-compiled the whole directory, I got some errors and gnus stopped working. I reverted back to the original distribution and haven't looked at the problem any further.
browse-url.el provides an interface to the most common web browsers from within any Emacs buffer.
browse-url.el does work under OS/2 as well, but does not check correctly for Netscape. In fact it assumes Netscape for Un*x to be installed.
(defun browse-url-netscape (url &optional new-window) the statement
(if (eq window-system 'w32) (list url) (append (if new-window '("-noraise")) (list "-remote" (concat "openURL(" url (if new-window ",new-window") ")"))))))))has to be changed to
(if (memq window-system '(w32 pm)) ;; ready for OS/2 Warp ;-) (list url) (append (if new-window '("-noraise")) (list "-remote" (concat "openURL(" url (if new-window ",new-window") ")"))))))))
