[OS X TeX] OT: Cocoa Emacs back to sourceforge

Just a note to tell to Emacs-interested people that the Cocoa port of 
Emacs seems to be maturing slowly, and has moved back to sourceforge :


The latest version (7 March) is a relocatable app, installed via a 
binary package installer. The web site says:

"This port offers superior platform support for MacOS X and GNUstep, 
including full desktop integration (dock, drag/drop, etc.), standard 
keybindings, use of standard Font, Color, and File open/save panels, 
and support for Services. Via GNUstep, it provides anti-aliased font 
rendering on Linux and other Unix systems.

  The port is based on GNU Emacs 20.7, which is one behind the latest 
version. Emacs 21 added mostly UI features, not core editing 
functionality. The UI is nicer though and furthermore some Lisp 
packages have started requiring Emacs 21. So there are plans to update 
this port to version 21 once the 20.7-based version is fully 
stabilized. Contact the developers to get involved."

I'm not really a user myself, I just installed it to see how it looks 
like. Please feel free to forward the info to the Emacs on OS X list.
