I'm not sure whether such announcements are useful or appropriate  
here, but in case there are other Textures-interested readers I'm  
going on anyway. Please tell me if you think it's inappropriate.

Just yesterday apparently (I'm checking for updates everyday) a new  
version 2.2.0a4 of alpha OS X Textures has been posted to the Blue  
Sky TeX Systems site at <http://www.bluesky.com/news/220a.html>. It  
contains now support for graphics, in the form of:

- Inclusion of EPS, PDF and PICT files through \special{illustration  

- Inclusion of images pasted into the Pictures window of Classic  
Textures documents, through \special{picture <filename>}.

This was IMHO the only major missing feature (with support for  
virtual fonts, possibly, and a more powerful editor including search- 
and-replace, block comment and indent, interface with OS X or  
cocoAspell spell check) preventing test of OS Textures for day-to-day  

I don't know whether the current driver file textures.def for the  
LaTeX graphics package will work as is for OS Textures, or whether it  
needs some fixing. We'll see.
