  • (1) I don't know if it does this on Windows (this is configurable during the build). (2) I'm not an authoritative source... but, my guess is this is an effort to modernize Emacs, to replace eww, w3m and such... Gnus can also use WebKit to render emails. – wvxvw Jan 19 '17 at 15:06

    Is it an actual release ? Perhaps there's some debugging information left in there. – YoungFrog Jan 20 '17 at 6:51

It's compiled with different compiler options to address performance issues. https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-11/msg00284.html
