I just did a full install of the TL2005 in Expert mode over my 11/23/04
TL2004 version and can report that it seems to be working flawlessly with my
fonts, etc., right now. I also re-installed XeTeX and the latest Context
Updater and they seem to be working also.

I hope the magnification problem gets resolved. The fact of the matter is
that whatever the logical reason for changing (La)TeX's behavior in that
respect people have gotten used to the old behavior and this breaks old
files without Bruno's ``fix.'' I don't tend to use magnification very much
but do have old files that did use it.

Good Luck,
