(if you have problems to download the .dmg file, right (or control) click and choose save/download option)

Version: 1.1, released 18 April 2007

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), and to use dvipdfmx and simpdftex in a seamless way. 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/emacs/

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

;; Load Enhanced Carbon Emacs plugin
