Thanks, I'm currently trying to install the new TeX and I see  
problems: I-installer complains that it can't find kpsewhich and  
quits the installation. This is with version 2.85

Talking about i-installer: Maybe I got something wrong here but I  
never succeeded in updating the i-installer with the i-installer.  
Everytime i-installer tells me that an update for the app itself is  
available, I download and install it, but after quitting and re- 
opening it, the version number hasn't changed. I always end up with  
downloading the disc image.
