I think one important point is SUMO. Most users I know, (and who are
not experts) usually will tend to the SUMO version. I am just in the
middle of trying to get the new auctex 11.82 version to work (the
problem are mostly caused by the fact that preview is now included
within auctex), however the delay is only caused by the lack of my

I agree with David that it would be ideal if the core auctex
developers would control the version to be shipped with xemacs,
because well they are the maintainers and the even have made the
(nice) effort to produce a xemacs-pkg themselves (the only other lisp
package) I know, which does this, is x-symbol (vm seems to work
differently). I have not even participated in any discussion
concerning adding that feature (generating the xemacs-pkg).
Unfortunately no other user came up as volunteer as a auctex packer.

It is most unfortunate that xemacs, ui, pui does not manage 3rd party
pkg, as does dkpg and rpm.

However since I think that SUMO is important I will try my best to
provide a sync with 11.82 and can hope that in the future things will
be more smooth on my side (and that the structure of auctex will stay
the way it is at least for the near future.)
