New features in No Gnus:
If you have tried No Gnus (the unstable Gnus branch leading to this release) but went back to a stable version, be careful when upgrading to this version. In particular, you will probably want to remove the ~/News/marks directory (perhaps selectively), so that flags are read from your ~/.newsrc.eld instead of from the stale marks file, where this release will store flags for nntp. See a later entry for more information about nntp marks. Note that downgrading isn't safe in general.

This provides a clean API to SASL mechanisms from within Emacs. The user visible aspects of this, compared to the earlier situation, include support for DIGEST-MD5 and NTLM. See Emacs SASL.
The primary change this brings is support for DIGEST-MD5 and NTLM, when the server supports it.
It is enabled by default (see

timeout of 16 seconds (see

gnus-article-wide-reply-with-original) for a wide reply in the article buffer yanks a text that is in the active region, if it is set, as well as the R (
gnus-article-reply-with-original) command. Note that the R command in the article buffer no longer accepts a prefix argument, which was used to make it do a wide reply. See Article Keymap.

The directory can be changed using the (customizable) variable
nntp-marks-directory, and marks can be disabled using the
(back end) variable
nntp-marks-is-evil. The advantage of this
is that you can copy ~/News/marks (using rsync, scp or
whatever) to another Gnus installation, and it will realize what
articles you have read and marked. The data in ~/News/marks
has priority over the same data in ~/.newsrc.eld.
By default, Gnus does not send any information about itself, but you can
customize it using the variable
