That may be, but the new TeXShop also offers much nicer syncing  
between the source and the preview. On the 600+ page book we are  
writing, this has proven to be invaluable.

You should be able to move to the new TeXShop with no changes to your  
source files (except maybe the %!TEX root commands at the top of  
source files).

All the best,
