The TeX (based on TeX Live) i-Package has been released to all the
repositories and so have all the support i-Packages: MusixTeX, CM-
Super, CB-Greek and the ConTeXt Updater.
(The LaTeX Updater will be removed later. For a recent LaTeX, the TeX
Live i-Package is the best choice.)
The old and new TeX i-Package can both be installed on a system. They
do not interfere.
There are two special points of attention when migrating from old to
new or when keeping them both available for the time being:
- Your personal files in ~/Library/texmf are available for both.
Especially configuration files like updmap.cfg (font maps) and
language.dat (hyphenation patterns) are not compatible with both
systems, mainly because file names differ between the two distributions
- If you use TeX from the command line, you get either old or new,
depending on what is in the system-wide shell startup settings. The
values there are set by the configuration phase of either i-Package
and the last configuration run defines what is being set there.
One other important note: XeTeX is currently only supported on intel.
Default install locations are /usr/local/teTeX (old) and /usr/local/
The TeX Support i-Packages (except for the LaTeX Updater) can handle
