Looks like it's had some effect:


  [Lots of TeX-related changes]

  I worked on the TeX module for 8.6, but TeX is a HUGE system. In fact,
  it's a whole family of huge systems (TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, BiblioTeX,
  etc.). Every time I look at it, I find more stuff we need to consider
  supporting in the TeX module. Most of those things are optional,
  "would be nice" features. The improvements that went into 8.6.1 were
  "duh, this should have been in there from the start" features. My bad.

  Having said that (with tongue somewhere in the vicinity of my cheek),
  I will say that I'm rather proud of the TeX module. It has been a
  tremendous amount of work, but it has enabled TeX editing/navigation
  in ways that I haven't seen in other editors (and it's going to be
  even better).
