I'm using the dailies from ELPA, upgrading occasionally.
Works well in the "normal" current Emacs from http://emacsformacosx.com/

I'd have recommended Aquamacs until recently, but the builds from link
above are both more current and stable generally.

For LaTeX, there are many ways to get it such as homebrew; I am quite
happy with MacTeX from https://tug.org/mactex/.

Note that you might have to configure paths for LaTeX in Emacs, if you
start Emacs from the GUI, since changing GUI session environment on
Macs is less than obvious.


• Configure your path in your user's launchd config so that the whole
session has LaTeX in your path
• Modify your shell environment and just launch Emacs from the shell.
The binary would then be /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs

Cheers, Bernd
