I'm using PG with the release version. Now I don't remember all the
details but I've took the ProofGeneral package from and unpacked it inside
Isabele2014/contrib (I think it can go anywhere as long as you set the
PROOFGENERAL_HOME environment var). Then I copied the 'emacs' script
from the previous release's 'lib/Tools' folder into the 2014's
'lib/Tools' folder. I think I've set the PROOFGENERAL_HOME environment
variable in my '.bashrc'. Now 'isabelle emacs' works as before.

The jEdit Prover IDE is great but it's greedy compared to the
ProofGeneral setup.

Best wishes,
