All MacTeX packages at


have been updated. MacTeX_Additions contains Gerben's latest i- 
Installer, all TeX Distributions contain the latest texdist script  
and setmanpath script, the Preference Pane's name is on two lines,  
etc. However, the significant changes are

	gwTeX is based on Gerben's latest release

	the TeXLive-2006 distributions contain the
	latest experimental TUG release from TUG, 1/3/2007

All of these packages have been tested on 10.3 and 10.4 powerpc, and  
10.4 and 10.5 Intel, typesetting a large pdflatex file, and small  
ConTeXt and xeLaTeX files. Note that TeXLive-2005 doesn't contain  
XeTeX, but TeXLive-2006 does. The one problem is that ConTeXt in  
gwTeX and TeXLive-2006 don't work on system 10.3. I believe that is  
because ruby on 10.3 is too old.
