 Log Message:
 Update to 11.55, provided by Antoine Reilles in PR 29816.
 News in 11.55
    * A bug was fixed which lead to the insertion of trailing whitespace
      during filling.  In particular extra spaces were added to sentence
      endings at the end of lines.  You can make this whitespace visible
      by setting the variable `show-trailing-whitespace' to `t'.  If you
      want to delete all trailing whitespace in a buffer, type `M-x
      delete-trailing-whitespace RET'.
    * A bug was fixed which lead to a `*Compile-Log*' buffer popping up
      when the first LaTeX file was loaded in an Emacs session.
    * On some systems the presence of an outdated Emacspeak package lead
      to the error message `File mode specification error: (error
      "Variable binding depth exceeds max-specpdl-size")'.  Precautions
      were added which prevent this error from happening.  But
      nevertheless, it is advised to upgrade or uninstall the outdated
      Emacspeak package.
    * The value of `TeX-macro-global' is not determined during
      configuration anymore but at load time of AUCTeX.  Consequently the
      associated configuration option `--with-tex-input-dirs' was
    * Support for the LaTeX Japanese classes `jsarticle' and `jsbook'
      was added.
 News in 11.54
    * The parser (used e.g. for `TeX-auto-generate-global') was extended
      to recognize keywords common in LaTeX packages and classes, like
      "\DeclareRobustCommand" or "\RequirePackage".  Additionally a bug
      was fixed which led to duplicate entries in AUCTeX style files.
    * Folding can now be done for paragraphs and regions besides single
      constructs and the whole buffer.  With the new `TeX-fold-dwim'
      command content can both be hidden and shown with a single key
      binding.  In course of these changes new key bindings for
      unfolding commands where introduced.  The old bindings are still
      present but will be phased out in future releases.
    * Info files of the manual now have a .info extension.
    * There is an experimental toolbar support now.  It is not activated
      by default.  If you want to use it, add
           (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook 'LaTeX-install-toolbar)
      to your init file.
    * The manual now contains a new chapter "Quick Start".  It explains
      the main features and how to use them, and should be enough for a
      new user to start using AUCTeX.
    * A new section "Font Locking" was added to the manual which explains
      syntax highlighting in AUCTeX and its customization.  Together with
      the sections related to folding and outlining, the section is part
      of the new chapter "Display".
    * Keywords for syntax highlighting of LaTeX constructs to be typeset
      in bold, italic or typewriter fonts may now be customized.
      Besides the built-in classes, new keyword classes may be added by
      customizing the variable `font-latex-user-keyword-classes'.  The
      customization options can be found in the customization group
    * Verbatim content is now displayed with the `fixed-pitch' face. (GNU
      Emacs only)
    * Syntax highlighting should not spill out of verbatim content
      anymore. (GNU Emacs only)
    * Verbatim commands like `\verb|...|' will not be broken anymore
      during filling.
    * You can customize the completion for graphic files with
    * Support for the LaTeX packages `url', `listings', `jurabib' and
      `csquotes' was added with regard to command completion and syntax
    * Performance of fontification and filling was improved.
    * Insertion of nodes in Texinfo mode now supports completion of
      existing node names.
    * Setting the variable `LaTeX-float' to `nil' now means that you
      will not be prompted for the float position of figures and tables.
      You can get the old behaviour of `nil' by setting the variable to
      `""', i.e. an empty string.  See also *Note Floats::.
    * The XEmacs-specific bug concerning `overlays-at' was fixed.
    * Lots of bug fixes.
 News in 11.53
    * The LaTeX math menu can include Unicode characters if your Emacs
      built supports it.  See the variable `LaTeX-math-menu-unicode',
      *Note Mathematics::.
    * Bug fixes for XEmacs.
    * Completion for graphic files in the TeX search path has been added.
    * `start' is used for the viewer for MikTeX and fpTeX.
    * The variable `TeX-fold-preserve-comments' can now be customized to
      deactivate folding in comments.
 News in 11.52
    * Installation and menus under XEmacs work again (maybe for the first
    * Fontification of subscripts and superscripts is now disabled when
      the fontification engine is not able to support it properly.
    * Bug fixes in the build process.
 News in 11.51
    * PDFTeX and Source Special support did not work with ConTeXt, this
      has been fixed.  Similar for Source Special support under Windows.
    * Omega support has been added.
    * Bug fixes in the build process.
    * `TeX-fold' now supports folding of environments in Texinfo mode.
 News in 11.50
    * The use of source specials when processing or viewing the document
      can now be controlled with the new `TeX-source-specials' minor mode
      which can be toggled via an entry in the Command menu or the key
      binding `C-c C-t C-s'.  If you have customized the variable
      `TeX-command-list', you have to re-initialize it for this to work.
      This means to open a customization buffer for the variable by
      typing `M-x customize-variable RET TeX-command-list RET', selecting
      "Erase Customization" and do your customization again with the new
    * The content of the command menu now depends on the mode (plain TeX,
      LaTeX, ConTeXt etc.).  Any former customization of the variable
      `TeX-command-list' has to be erased.  Otherwise the command menu
      and the customization will not work correctly.
    * Support for hiding and auto-revealing macros, e.g. footnotes or
      citations, and environments in a buffer was added, *Note Folding::.
    * You can now control if indentation is done upon typing <RET> by
      customizing the variable `TeX-newline-function', *Note Indenting::.
    * Limited support for `doc.sty' and `ltxdoc.cls' (`dtx' files) was
      added.  The new docTeX mode provides functionality for editing
      documentation parts.  This includes formatting (indenting and
      filling), adding and completion of macros and environments while
      staying in comments as well as syntax highlighting.  (Please note
      that the mode is not finished yet.  For example syntax
      highlighting does not work yet in XEmacs.)
    * For macro completion in docTeX mode the AUCTeX style files
      `doc.el', `ltxdoc.el' and `ltx-base.el' were included.  The latter
      provides general support for low-level LaTeX macros and may be
      used with LaTeX class and style files as well.  It is currently
      not loaded automatically for those files.
    * Support for ConTeXt with a separate ConTeXt mode is now included.
      Macro definitions for completion are available in Dutch and
    * The filling and indentation code was overhauled and is now able to
      format commented parts of the source syntactically correct.  Newly
      available functionality and customization options are explained in
      the manual.
    * Filling and indentation in XEmacs with preview-latex and activated
      previews lead to the insertion of whitespace before multi-line
      previews.  AUCTeX now contains facilities to prevent this problem.
    * If `TeX-master' is set to `t', AUCTeX will now query for a master
      file only when a new file is opened.  Existing files will be left
      alone.  The new function `TeX-master-file-ask' (bound to `C-c _'
      is provided for adding the variable manually.
    * Sectioning commands are now shown in a larger font on display
      devices which support such fontification.  The variable
      `font-latex-title-fontify' can be customized to restore the old
      appearance, i.e. the usage of a different color instead of a
      change in size.
    * Support for `alphanum.sty', `beamer.cls', `booktabs.sty',
      `captcont.sty', `emp.sty', `paralist.sty', `subfigure.sty' and
      `units.sty'/`nicefrac.sty' was added.  Credits go to the authors
      mentioned in the respective AUCTeX style files.
    * Inserting graphics with `C-c RET \includegraphics RET' was
      improved.  See the variable `LaTeX-includegraphics-options-alist'.
    * If `LaTeX-default-position' is `nil', don't prompt for position
      arguments in Tabular-like environments, see *Note Tabular-like::.
    * Completion for available packages when using `C-c RET \usepackage
      RET' was improved on systems using the kpathsea library.
    * The commenting functionality was fixed.  The separate functions for
      commenting and uncommenting were unified in one function for
      paragraphs and regions respectively which do both.
    * Syntax highlighting can be customized to fontify quotes delimited
      by either >>German<< or <<French>> quotation marks by changing the
      variable `font-latex-quotes'.
    * Certain TeX/LaTeX keywords for functions, references, variables
      and warnings will now be fontified specially.  You may add your own
      keywords by customizing the variables
      `font-latex-match-variable-keywords' and
    * If you include the style files `german' or `ngerman' in a document
      (directly or via the `babel' package), you should now customize
      `LaTeX-german-open-quote', `LaTeX-german-close-quote' and
      `LaTeX-german-quote-after-quote' instead of `TeX-open-quote',
      `TeX-close-quote' and `TeX-quote-after-quote' if you want to
      influence the type of quote insertion.
    * Upon viewing an output file, the right viewer and command line
      options for it are now determined automatically by looking at the
      extension of the output file and certain options used in the
      source file.  The behavior can be adapted or extended respectively
      by customizing the variable `TeX-output-view-style'.
    * You can control whether `TeX-insert-macro' (`C-c RET') ask for all
      optional arguments by customizing the variable
      `TeX-insert-macro-default-style', *Note Completion::.
    * `TeX-run-discard' is now able to completely detach a process that
      it started.
    * The build process was enhanced and is now based on `autoconf'
      making installing AUCTeX a mostly automatic process.  See *Note
      Installation:: and *Note Installation under MS Windows:: for
 News in 11.14
    * Many more LaTeX and LaTeX2e commands are supported.  Done by
