I've pulled emacs 22 from the CVS, compiled it and switched to it from Xemacs. Main reason is that I want to use the org-mode (included with emacs 22) to keep collection of notes. Although it is supposed to work also with xemacs, i haven't been able to byte-compile it; it fails with an obscure error message. I did report a bug to the author, and I'm waiting for an answer now. I have a feeling that xemacs is now lagging behind emacs development, and it has definetely less community support on freenode irc. Moreover, it seems that most packages are first developed for emacs, and only then (maybe) ported to xemacs.
