Hi Jean-Claude,

thanks for the information. Is the preference-pane available on its  
own somewhere? I donot want to download the whole huge TL2009(yet)  
since  I want to install TeXLive2009 when it is out of beta. Currently  
I am happily running TeXLive 2008 but will/want/crave to install Snow  
Leopard soonest.

TLU indeed rocks (thanks Adam), though there is nothing to update  
currently (fine)

regards, Rolf
