> 9 March 2006: Textures® for OS X, Rosetta and Universal
> We have had the opportunity in recent days to test Textures on the  
> Intel Macintosh platform. We are pleased to report that Textures  
> appears to work without problems under Rosetta (i.e., as  
> interpreted PowerPC code); also, we have successfully compiled and  
> run Textures as a Universal application with native Intel code.  
> Although there are still some packaging issues, we believe this to  
> be the last major hurdle before we can make the first preliminary  
> version available to Textures owners. (There are minor problems  
> with the Intel code, so the first version available will be PowerPC  
> and Rosetta only; the Universal version will follow shortly.)
> We know that many are interested in the performance of the Intel  
> platform, so we report these times for native Textures to compile  
> the 494 pages of The TeXbook: 1.33 seconds (G5 @ 2.0GHz); 1.1  
> seconds (MacBook Pro @ 1.83GHz).
> More news soon ...
