[Sorry for cross-posting in an attempt to reach as many interested parties as possible.]

Users (present or future) of GNU Emacs and ESS on Windows might be interested in my distribution of an easy to install (read: with an installation wizard) version of GNU Emacs 21.3 with the following additions:

For details:


The plan is to keep my distribution current with R releases.

The installation wizard is not all that smart for now, but I'll try to improve it in the future. For example, it creates a HOME environment variable (if it doesn't already exist), but doesn't ask for a value. %USERPROFILE% is used as default value.

Comments, criticisms and translation of messages appreciated!

[Disclaimer: I am not a WIndows user myself. I created this distribution to ease adoption of Emacs by my students.]
