Aquamacs is the Emacs editor that Mac users love. Aquamacs lets you write text from LaTeX manuscripts to to-do lists, from C to Cobol, Java, Python, Shell-script, Lisp, everything! Aquamacs looks and behaves like other Mac programs - even though it's still the powerful GNU Emacs with all the extensibility that millions have come to appreciate.

Emacs is a text editor of legendary power and configurability, but it also has an enormously complex interface. Aquamacs tames the Emacs tiger: you get Apple shortcuts (in addition to the Emacs ones), nice fonts, one file per window (if wanted), international input methods, Apple more...

What's New

Version 3.0a:

  • This Aquamacs is based on Emacs 24. Highlights:
    • A major addition to Emacs 24 is its package managing system. (Start with M-x list-packages. Re-installing included packages is not recommended.)
    • There is a new word count function (see Aquamacs Edit menu).
    • Right-to-left text (Arabic, Persian, Hebrew) is well supported now even when mixed with more...


  • OS X 10.6 or later
