There has been a change in setup for TeX Programs as distributed by me.

 From now on, there are *two* i-Packages for TeX Programs
- TeX Programs
- TeX Programs (Experimental)

TeX Programs is the package to use if you require stability. It is 
drawn from the stable 'source' repository of TeX Live. The TeX Programs 
i-package used to be drawn from source.development when it looked like 
that repository was fairly stable. I have returned to the source 
repository for this. Version:
	pdfTeX (Web2C 7.3.7x) 3.14159-1.00b-pretest-20020211

TeX Programs (Experimental) is drawn from TeX Live's source.development 
repository and as such it is a snapshot of work in progress, rightly 
called 'bleeding edge'. Current version:
	pdfTeX (Web2C 7.3.11) 3.14159-1.10a-beta-20021118

Both are available through i-Installer's Known Packages menu. Both will 
contain up-to-date versions of my own stuff (like altpdftex). One can 
easily switch between both by just installing one on top of the other.


I just noticed that the texbinaries package configuration does not 
work! Probably a mismatch between older TeX and newer texconfig/fmtutil.

I will look into this. In the mean time, the experimental package 
*should* work
