This is the final Aquamacs 2.0 release. Thanks to everyone who helped test and improve the new version.
[Version 2.0]

Note: This is a preview version. We regularly maintain and recommend version 1.9 for mission-critical use.

The correct version name of this is "2.0preview3".
[Version 2.0pr3]

Want to check out our latest work? Download a nightly build of the new 2.0 branch, which is based on Cocoa and Emacs 23. It's far from perfect yet, but already quite usable: http://aquamacs.org/nightlies.shtml
[Version 1.8a]

If you're on a PPC Mac and you downloaded 1.6preview4 on Monday Dec 29, you may encounter a problem with the Finder refusing to run Aquamacs ("not for this architecture"). We've fixed this - just download again. If you're not on PPC, there is no need to download it again.

I'm afraid Terry Teague passed away in 2005.

As an alternative to DDD, try out Aquamacs Emacs, which comes with a built-in visual debugging interface to a number of common debuggers, including gdb and pdb. Download here:

Folks, do not use the option that allows you to strip PPC code from Universal Binaries to save space on your Intel machine.

This feature is seriously flawed, as it deleted system resources that are important and needed whenever applications are run under Rosetta. In my case, Excel stopped working with certain files, and I couldn't synchronize (hotsync) my Palm any more (it's a PPC application).
I had to manually debug this (Console) reinstall a number of files from my backup (mostly /System/Library/Printers and /System/Library/Extensions and God knows what). This would probably have been too difficult for many users, and they would have had to reinstall OS X.

Until this piece of software has been updated to stay away from /System files, I recommend not using the "strip universal binaries" function.

your comment doesn't make sense.
I never said that Office was a UB, and I also didn't say that Monolingual deleted anything that was part of Office. It deleted PPC system resources that are necessary to run certain PPC software (such as Office )on Intel Macs.
