I did this too. Skim now has a setting for Aquamacs (no longer  
"Aquamacs Emacs") but it doesn't work.

I saw this too. Kind of entertaining... I figured they probably have  
enough bugs to keep them busy.

Have you filed a bug report? I figured I would just "look" until there  
is some kind of official release. I'm sure they are up to their ears  
right now and they don't need to hear from me until they have their  
1000 line long check list shortened.
