My installers are based on TeX Live sources and thus provide 1.23

Is this while compiling a file or while creating a format? While the Mac 
OS X binary on TeX Live may not work (I recall that there were some 
last-minute fixes which may not have made it to the Mac OS X binaries on 
TL7), as far as I know, my distributions contain a working omega 1.23.

If you have a test file for me to typeset, I can try it here for you.

That is 1.15 I think. There has been some discussion about this.
