The TeX i-Package has been updated and will become the standard  
package in a few days. Currently, it can be downloaded from the  
*EXPERIMENTAL* i-Directory.

When you have the fondu program installed (for which there is an i- 
Package) and you install the updated TeX i-Package, an addition to  
gwTeX will be installed which will enable you to use several fonts  
which come with your Mac in normal PDFTeX. (TeX + dvips is not  
supported, nor are TeX hacks that depend on PostScript trickery like  
pstricks and microtype supported).

Using the Mac fonts is simple, and support for LaTeX and ConTeXt is  
available. For the Hoefler and Didot fonts, you can even select to  
have the old style numerals by default.

After installation, the manual is in /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/ 
doc/fonts/gtamacfonts/gtamacfonts.pdf or you can type "texdoc  
gtamacfonts" in a Terminal window.

The rest of the i-Package has not changed so only a download of the  
gwTeX part will follow if you update and (re)install.

The support has been developed by Adam Lindsay and Thomas A. Schmitz.
