Hi all,

As a result of this recent thread


I made a couple of small additions to my modified GNU Emacs  
distribution, namely the the following lines to the site  
configuration (site-start.el) file:

;; Following the "source if real" philosophy put forward by ESS, one
;; should not need the command history and should not save the
;; workspace at the end of an R session. Hence, both options are
;; disabled here.
(setq-default inferior-R-args "--no-restore-history --no-save ")

;; Set code indentation following the standard in R sources.
(setq-default c-default-style "bsd")
(setq-default c-basic-offset 4)
(add-hook 'ess-mode-hook
	     (ess-set-style 'C++ 'quiet)))

Hence, no need to download again the whole distribution if you did it  
in the last couple of days.

I also started to number my releases and added a NEWS file, to help  
keeo track of changes. The distribution is always at
