+@cindex Emacs 28, new features in
+Emacs 28 has too many new features and changes to list all of them
+here.  We list below a small selection; consult the Emacs @file{NEWS}
+file (@kbd{C-h n}) for the full list of changes in Emacs 28.
+@cindex native compilation of Lisp files
+Emacs now optionally supports native compilation of Lisp files.  This
+can improves performance significantly in some cases.  To enable this,
+configure Emacs with the '--with-native-compilation' option.
+The new NonGNU ELPA archive is enabled by default alongside GNU ELPA.
+Thus, packages on NonGNU ELPA will appear by default in the list shown
+by the @code{list-packages} command.
+The Cairo graphics library is now used by default if present.
+The new themes @samp{modus-vivendi} and @samp{modus-operandi} have
+been added.  They are designed to conform with the highest standard
+for color-contrast accessibility (WCAG AAA).
+On capable systems, Emacs now correctly displays Emoji and Emoji
+sequences by default, provided that a suitable font is available.
+New system for displaying documentation for groups of functions
+(@kbd{M-x shortdoc-display-group RET}).
+Among the many internal changes in this release, we would like to
+highlight that all files in the tree now use @code{lexical-binding}.
