The only problem I got with TeXmaker is that it can't compile my  
MetaPost documents if I want to use LaTeX (and not Plain TeX) as  
typesetter for the labels.

  I.e, something I obtain through the command line by entering "mpost  
-tex=latex name.mp" does not work with TeXmaker, despite having  
customized its MetaPost panel in the Preferences menu accordingly.

(I hope this problem is solved with the new version.)

Otherwise, it's quite a good program.
