### beamer & preview

Hi everyone,
first of all thanks for the great work.

I'm using auctex and preview with beamer, and I noticed that images are
shown many times in case there are overlays.

Then since I'm here another question, isn't it possible to compile with
one key only?
I mean C-c C-v runs the viewer without further questions, but to compile
I always have to do at least C-c C-c RET

And last thing, isn't there any plan to switch the repository to
something more modern (at least subversion)?
I think just for that the project would gain many more developers, and
maybe it would open more possibilities...

Thanks a lot,
Andrea

Yup!  And I've finally checked in the patch.  Phew. (c:

Regarding the question about where to put documentation, I also failed
to find a good place for it.  Perhaps we need a new "Navigation"
subsection below "Editing"?

In the LaTeX menu the functions for marking and jumping to the start or
end of an environment are below "Formatting and Marking", together with
the functions for filling.  But in the manual we have "Commenting",
"Indenting" and "Filling" which can all be related to a marked region.
So perhaps a separate section is in order.

And in that section one could describe both the functions for LaTeX and
Texinfo mode.

Sorry, but I don't understand the request.  What exactly should happen
if you type C-c C-e' when the region is active?

### Current snapshot in ELPA


Did anyone consider including a more recent (or [gasp!] current)
snapshot of AUCTEX into ELPA (GNU ELPA or any other one), besides
version 11.86.  Or is it already present in some ELPA?  If not, may I
make this a "feature request"?

Thanks.

It should invoke the function LaTeX-environment, prompting you to
choose a environment. It should then put the start tag of that
environment (e.g \begin{theorem}) at the start of your marked area,
and the end tag at the end of the marked area.

The use case is as follows: I have written a paragraph, and it turns
out it should not be part of the main flow of text, but rather a
definition. I mark the paragraph, C-c C-e and select definition, and
then the paragraph gets the \begin{definition} ... \end{definition}
around it. Currently i need to either write the begin-end manually, or
do  C-c C-e at the start of the paragraph, and then cut-paste the
\end{..} to the end of the paragraph.

I don't know about elpa, but el-get
(https://github.com/dimitri/el-get/) makes it trivial to install
auctex, reftex and a lot of other packages. Auctex and reftex are
recipe: https://github.com/dimitri/el-get/blob/master/recipes/auctex.el

Thanks for the idea; I took a look at the recipe and that invokes
configure and friends.  I was hoping for something that would work on
Windows [yes, I know] as well, without much extra pain.  Oh, well.

### A feature request concerning ConTeXt MkIV

Hello,

I am using AUCTeX extensively to edit LaTeX files, and first of all I'd
like to say a big THANK YOU for that excellent package.  However, I am
starting to use ConTeXt as well, and I have one problem with it.  While
ConTeXt MkII support is ok, I could not configure AUCTeX to run ConTeXt
MkIV.  I think this is rather trivial to implement, but I have neither
knowledge to do it nor time to learn what is needed;).  From the user's
point of view it would be best to be able to select ConTeXt version, so
that MkII runs texexec (like at present) and MkIV runs the "context"
script (with the filename as the parameter).
