None now. Then it was pre-1.0, recent is version 1.3rc1 (http://
Aquamacs Emacs is also based on the non-Unicode GNU Emacs 22.x. This
and its character of a Carbon application, i.e. something coming from
non-Unicode classic Mac OS, delivered not so ideal support when
working with text outside Mac-Roman encoding. The glyphs to present
these text were taken off different fonts and they did not match
always in look, variant, or size. This typography is a bit too modern
for me. Aquamacs Emacs is not based on recent GNU Emacs 23.0.50 code
from CVS, this means it does have the feature of a hub or server that
runs in the windowing environment and can be accessed from helper
applications (emacsclient) or from some terminal, to have access to
one document from a few places or sites (also know as the multi-tty
Being an active X11 user since decades I use non-Unicode GNU Emacs
23.0.50 and Unicode Emacs 23.0.60 (formerly 23.0.0) – and also the
Cocoa variant Emacs.app (http://emacs-app.sf.net/), which is based on
23.0.60 code and does not have the same problems presenting Unicode
text. It's an unstable version, now release candidate 3, close to
being released as something stable, although it's code basis is
something experimental. Since I am using this code in Unicode Emacs
23.0.60 in X11 and I do updates from CVS once or twice a week
(depending on the number of bugs I am finding), it is likely that a
stable Emacs.app release can have this or that bug (actually Aquamacs
Emacs is also based on CVS or pre-release code, and it's from an
elderly and meanwhile abandoned branch, GNU Emacs 22.1.50, months
after the release of stable GNU Emacs 21.1).
Emacs.app is missing built-in ESS and R support. I think it's also
missing extended support for programmers (although the openness of
GNU Emacs makes it easy to integrate all missing software particles),
but it has doc-view: the ability to view DVI, PS, EPS, PDF (amongst
other graphics formats) in Emacs – although no automatic re-loading
yet! And the original vector format is converted to PNG, or its text
contents is extracted to search for some string. And printing off
Emacs.app is not integrated into Mac OS X.
