Emacsen History New Features
The new Gnus version couldn't have been done without the help of all the people on the (ding) mailing list. Every day for over a year I have gotten billions of nice bug reports from them, filling me with joy, every single one of them. Smooches. The people on the list have been tried beyond endurance, what with my ``oh, that's a neat idea <type type>, yup, I'll release it right away <ship off> no wait, that doesn't work at all <type type>, yup, I'll ship that one off right away <ship off> no, wait, that absolutely does not work'' policy for releases. Micro$oft---bah. Amateurs. I'm much worse. (Or is that ``worser''? ``much worser''? ``worsest''?)
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Academy for... oops, wrong show.
gnus-picon.el' and the manual section on picons (see Picons).
gnus-gl.el' and the GroupLens manual section (see GroupLens).
nnfolder.el' enhancements & rewrite.
nnvirtual.el' and many other things.
This manual was proof-read by Adrian Aichner, with Ricardo Nassif, Mark Borges, and Jost Krieger proof-reading parts of the manual.
The following people have contributed many patches and suggestions:
Christopher Davis, Andrew Eskilsson, Kai Grossjohann, David Kċgedal, Richard Pieri, Fabrice Popineau, Daniel Quinlan, Jason L. Tibbitts, III, and Jack Vinson.

For a full overview of what each person has done, the ChangeLogs included in the Gnus alpha distributions should give ample reading (550kB and counting).
Apologies to everybody that I've forgotten, of which there are many, I'm sure.
Gee, that's quite a list of people. I guess that must mean that there actually are people who are using Gnus. Who'd'a thunk it!Emacsen History New Features
