Hi Raman, I realise that refactoring is probably going to introduce som instability at first, so this is just to let you know of some of the issues I'm running into with the latest svn snapshot. 1. w3m is giving a void function error when you try to run w3m. The problem is that emacspeak-w3-speak-mode-hook is being called. Putting a require w3 at the top of emacspeak-w3m.el seems to fix this. 2. another issue I've run into is related to emacspeak-fix-interactive-command-if-necessary. I've not even looked at this yet and am just mentioning it. However, I had to uninstall muse and planner mode before I could get past startup failures . I first noted this on a testing box at work where I had updated to the latest cvs version of emacs. at the time, I thought it was most likely something to do with the latest cvs version of emacs and didn't look further. However, I'm seeing a similar error now at home with my emacs 22 version (built from source). 3. finally, I'm getting errors with the latest VM version which I'm not getting if I stick with the older emacspeak cvs snapshot. I mainly wanted to alert you to the w3m issue and the need for a require. The other points are just reference. I'll try to look at these in more detail next weekend. I didn't think the need to just add (require 'w3) to emacspeak-w3m.el justified a patch. Just for reference, the emacspeak CVS snapshot which is working fine is from the end of June (Revision 4678. The one giving me problems is from today, and is revision 4959. Same version of emacs in both cases GNU Emacs 18.104.22.168 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.10.12) of 2007-06-21 on lion I've also done a make clean and rebuilt both emacspeak snapshots, just in case the problem was due to updates in other packages.
