I did a "vanilla" installation of 5.2.1 on Emacs 21.3.1 running on SuSE 
9.1. As far as I know SuSE has not done anything to the standard Emacs 
except a small .emacs configuration (mostly stuff like showing line 
numbers and some gnus specific stuff).

It works out of the box with the nice-looking toolbar. However
 * I do not get a new frame when I use help in R (I prefer this 
behaviour, it is just that there were some talk about altering it)
 * No (additional) toolbar when I am in the R buffer (again, I do not 
know if it is intended).
 * Font-lock in SAS mode still does not work when I start emacs with the 
-nw (no-windows) option; it works with R mode though (as it always 
 * The date stamp on the frontpage of ess.pdf must be wrong (it is dated 
sometime in 2002).
 * The Changelog in ess.pdf only goes to ess-5.2.0

A last question: is it possible to view the texi files without 
installing them in the info hierachy, doing something like
 # info -f ess.texi
gets a complaint about texi missing the "top node"?

Thanks for you work.
