@section Ancient History

The origin of AUC @TeX{} is @file{tex-mode.el} from Emacs 16.  Lars
Peter Fischer @samp{<fischer@@iesd.auc.dk>} wrote the first functions to
insert font macros and Danish characters back in 1986.  Per Abrahamsen
@samp{<abraham@@iesd.auc.dk>} wrote the functions to insert environments
and sections, to indent the text, and the outline minor mode in 1987.
Kresten Krab Thorup @samp{<krab@@iesd.auc.dk>} wrote the buffer handling
and debugging functions, the macro completion, and much more, including
much improved indentation and text formatting functions.  He also made
the first public release in 1991, and was the main author and
coordinator of every release up to and including 6.0.
