There was a small problem with altpdftex in combination with u-psbuild 
distiller frontend which was discovered. This problem *only* occurs when 
you put settings in ~/.cshrc that should not be there and when you use 
u-psbuild as distiller frontend, so almost nobody is affected.

Also, the new installer will show it's version and it will also log 
installation info in /var/log/TeXGSInstaller.log and create 
/usr/local/teTeX/TeXGSInstaller.version and 
/usr/local/share/ghostscript/TeXGSInstaller.version containing 
information about what version you have and when it was installed. This 
will help me debug any problems.


There is no need to download the entire 48MB distribution if you are 
running the previous version. If you absolutely want to be up to date 
and you do not want to download everything, download
and copy it to its correct destination like this:
	sudo cat altpdftex-1.11 >`which altpdftex`
in a Terminal window. And if you use u-psbuild, download
and copy it to its correct destination like this:
	sudo cat u-psbuild >/usr/local/bin/u-psbuild

Copying this way (overwriting the contents of the existing versions) 
will keep permissions of the files unchanged.
