there is a new version of the mathematica programming mode mma.el for
(X)Emacs.  The mode mma.el is a major emacs mode for programming
mathematica package files (.m-files).  It provides font-locking, basic
indentation, function menu, and more.  It works on GNU Emacs 20.3 or later
(tested on 20.4) and XEmacs 20.4 or later (tested on 20.4 and 21.3).  Note,
that mma.el is *not* intended for interactively calling the math kernel.

The current version is now 1.32. The new features include:

+ support for customization
+ support for imenu on GNU Emacs
+ a slightly enhanced indentation function
+ some (hopefully) better documentation

For a more detailed description of mma.el and for the latest news and
version take a look at

If you are using mma.el and want to be informed about new versions, just
send me an email.

I hope you enjoy it!
