Version: 1.0 public release, released 15 February 2007
(this fixes few bugs from the old beta version)


Enhanced Carbon Emacs is now a universal enhancement plugin for  
arbitrary (unix, carbon, or aqua) emacs distributions (such as Yaced,  
Aquamacs, CarbonEmacs Tiger, or the native darwin emacs in /usr/bin/ 
emacs). This includes a fully customisable LaTeX editing environment  
based on AucTeX, RefTeX, Preview and other packages. Basically, ECE  
is a convenient way to properly install a large number of pre- 
configured useful packages for LaTeX users, which includes a hack of  
AUCTeX, that allows to have a more intuitive handling of the "view"  
command in a macintosh context (in particular, for non-pdftex users  
willing to preview in pdf). From emacs, you can launch directly any  
latex process or any mac application on files or regions you are  
working on.

The installer installs the ECE plugin in /Library/Application Support/ 

If you are not using aquamacs, then you should add in your .emacs
