I have been trying Aquamacs Distribution 1.4rc2

As reported before, it is running quite slow, especially when using my own
key-bindings and custom-commands...

The full-screen mode is great, and working fine.

I tried adding transparency (as that would be very nice with the full-screen
mode) by using;
(set-alpha 47)
But that does not seem to work (it did work under 1.3)

I use
MAC OS X 10.5.2
1.33GHz iBook PowerPC G4
