this is the copy of an entry on the Planet:
As expected , GNU Emacs 23 enters the so-called pretest stage. This
means, defined numbered snapshots of the current development head are
made, 23.0.90 being the first one (the row continues until .99, then
followed by .990 if needed) released last weekend. All users may test
those snapshots with
The Emacs eselect module lets you choose Emacs 23 as your primary Emacs
eselect emacs set emacs-23
or you call it via /usr/bin/emacs-23.
Thus there is little danger to destroy your current setup, although you
should think about rebuilding all your compiled Elisp files with the
new Emacs. app-admin/emacs-updater can assist you here. Report all bugs
found either to Emacs upstream directly (M-x report-emacs-bug) or to
your beloved Gentoo Emacs team via our Bugzilla.
