The Cutting Edge: Aquamacs Nightly Builds

If you'd like to stay on top of the game, download our nightly builds. These are produced from current development snapshots of GNU Emacs and Aquamacs, straight from their respective repositories.

The list of changes to date is available.

Building the nightlies may fail occasionally - that's part of why we do them. If that happens and you're tech savvy, please do check the log provided and try to fix the problem.
