is there anywhere a announcement of new releases of the "MacTeX  
Distribution" anywhere on the http://www.tug.org/mactex/ Website?

There is actual the information that MacTeX based on TeX Live 2007 is  
released in Februrary 2007 (http://tug.org/twg/mactex/) but if i  
download the .DMG File, the installer notifies me that the MacTeX  
Distribution is from September 2007. I found no information to this  
case on the website. So if i not downloaded the whole .dmg file -  
maybe i did not recognize that there is a new version of the  
distribution out in the world.

On the MacTeX Updates and Additional MacTeX Packages site (http://www.tug.org/mactex/morepackages.html 
) there is also no information about the September Release of the  
whole distribution.

I have with the MacTeX TeX Live 2007 distribution no possibilites to  
update automatically the different packages which are changed, or?

The alternative is using the Gerben Wierda's Distribution and check  
for updates over the i-installer.app.

But Gerben Wierda seems not to update his distribution anymore. The  
last Updates are from spring 2007.

So, is it better to switch from gwTeX to TeX Live 2007 from the MacTeX  

There are plans to release an update programm like i-installer.app for  
the MacTex TeX Live Distribution?

Thansk and Regards
