1. What's this?
This is "Mac port" addition to GNU Emacs 24 by Yamamoto Mitsuharu
<>. This provides a native GUI support
for Mac OS X 10.4 - 10.8. Note that Emacs 23 already contains the
official GUI support via the NS (Cocoa) port for Mac OS X 10.4 and
later. So if it is good enough for you, then you don't need to try
[If you find a bug of the prebuilt emacs bundle,
and emacs-mac.rb, please feel free to open a issue on github.]
If you find a bug, then please try to reproduce it with some
official builds such as X11 or NS (Cocoa). If it turns out to be
specific to the Mac port, then please report it to
"". Otherwise
(i.e., it is also reproducible with official ones), report it using
M-x report-emacs-bug *USING THE OFFICIAL BUILD* as such.
Emacs Mac port is now active developing by Mr Yamamoto Mitsuharu
<> by publishing patches on
emacs-devel mailing list. This is *not* an official repo.
More about this fork, please read README-mac.
