Aquamacs 1.9.1  (changes since 1.9)

- Auto Save files are now stored in ~/Library/Caches/Aquamacs Emacs.  This way, they survive reboots such as after system crashes (kernel panics, etc.).
Reported by Neil Best, Justin Pitts and Richard Busby.

- Auto Save files and Session files are purged after 31 days.

- Html Helper Mode: Improve recognition/update of time stamps in files.
Patch by Dave Mason.

- TeX / LaTeX macros are now found more reliably when using TeXLive (`TeX-macro-global' is configured differently).
Reported by Wolfgang Meiners.

- LaTeX master files in different directories are now found reliably when calling `Jump to PDF'.
Reported buy Mac Pigman.

- In some circumstances, point position was changed when switching back and forth between tabs directly and also via other buffer-switching mechanisms such as opening new files.

- Copying bug reports and other mail to the pasteboard in order to send them with GMail or another mail program now works reliably.
Reported by Matt Mollison.

- Improved compatibility of the language-layout specific keyboard emulation modes.
Reported by Santiago Gaviria.

- PHP-mode has been updated to version 1.5.0.
