How come AUCTeX runs `latex -source-specials'?  Which is your value
for `TeX-source-correlate-method'?  If it's `auto', which TeX
distribution are you using?

If you set `TeX-source-correlate-method' to `auto' also in git
version, nothing should be changed.

"Backward compatibility" is when old syntax is valid in newer versions
of a software, "forward compatibility" is when new syntax is valid in
old versions of a software.  In git version we added a new possible
value to `TeX-source-correlate-method', breaking forward
compatibility, but other "old" possible values of that variable are
still treated in the same way they were, so backward compatibility is
preserved ;-)

Forward search works for me, for enabling inverse search take a look
