Version 9.0-rc1 of Emacs

Release Notes: Font handling and text rendering were reworked to use Kenichi Handa's new font back-end system. The old system can still be used if you start up with "--disable-font-backend", but this will be removed in a future release. Font sets are now supported and automatically created when a font is selected. Recent X11 colors were added to Emacs.clr (but you must remove ~/Library/Colors/Emacs.clr to pick it up). ns-option-modifier, ns-control-modifier, and ns-function-modifier customization variables were added. The menus were updated to Emacs 21+ conventions. The right mouse button now generates mouse-3 events. Various bugfixes and rendering improvements were made.
