Re: emacs in Mac OS X

I've gotten the Carbon-based version built on CVS 'latest'.  I found one
bug in the frame initialization code that was causing a crash, fixed it
and submitted a bug to the Emacs developers list.

The output of 'emacs --version' is

"GNU Emacs
 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

 under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

So far I am having no problems using it.

Except they broke the carbon emacs by adding the "multi-tty" branch for the
next release, and aren't fixing it due to lack of talent.  Apparently the
carbon port isn't important to them any more. :( So now we're stuck with
command-line (somewhat broken) and X11 (unsure, haven't tried that, since I
don't fire up X11 very often), or the 22.1 release only (the last working
carbon version).

If you're a mac developer, and appreciate emacs, please head over to the emacs
devel list and offer your services.  The previous guy abandoned it.

Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
