Do you mean there's a new version of ManOpen coming? I'm also a  
frequent user of ManOpen (both the stand-alone application, and the  
command-line version openman), and I didn't see a new version on its  
web page. Or do you mean a faulty man page has been fixed, not  
ManOpen itself?

BTW, I've just realized it's fairly easy to add the relevant path for  
gwTeX to the manpath searched by ManOpen: go to Preferences >  
General, click the Add... button, navigate to /Library/teTeX/man or  
type / or Cmd-G to navigate to /usr/local/teTeX/man, click Open.  
You're done.

It seems ManOpen doesn't use the new Tiger mechanism in which the  
manpath is specified in /usr/share/misc/man.conf (fixed by i- 
Installer at the time gwTeX is installed).

An unfortunate change is that ManOpen now declares all extensions .1  
to .9 as man pages, so that several of my files from years ago, with  
names like "Chapitre 3.1", are seen by OS X as man pages whereas they  
are actually MacWrite II files.
