pdflatex and about to experiment with xelatex

I use lots of my own

Never use <Cmnd>R — I use TeXShop to run the job

In the last few weeks exact time unknown) the LaTeX bundle/environment
seems to be behaving differently
(1) $ now gets \( \)
(2) <Ctrl>$ seems to wrap the previous word in $$
(3) How do I now get \$ in text mode ? (in two keystrokes or less?)
The above behaviour doesn't seem to correspond to the documentation
(I'm running TextMate 1.5.8 (1509)
It looks like the middle of a transition --- I also have the bundles
LaTeX Experimental, LaTeXtra (don't remember installing those) and my
own local LaTeX bundle for my snippets.
Many thanks for addressing the LaTeX bundle --- as you say, there are
many ways of doing the same thing & it seems to easy to loose items (I
suspect that Spaces is shadowing the <Ctrl>4 that should have got me \$)
Am I right in thinking that there have been some changes in the last
couple of weeks ?
