I just installed MacTeX2009 on my G4 Powerbook after using the 2008
version successfully to write a 400 page book. Unfortunately, the new
version of TeXshop (2.28) hangs (actually crashes, invoking the
"ReportCrash" app) when I command click in the source to sync with the
preview. Command clicking in the preview window works fine. I re-
typeset the document and removed the .synctex.gz file - these measures
Another problem was with LaTeXiT - upon launching the new version
(2.0.0), a short window appeared telling me that it was converting my
(fairly large) history file. The app seemed to hang and after a few
minutes, I killed it. Unfortunately, I lost all of my history.
Other than these two problems, MacTeX seems to work fine and many
thanks to the authors for keeping it up to date.
