HS> Just to keep everyone informed. Development for TeX Live 2010 (what will be distributed with MacTeX-2010) has officially started. That means that there will no longer be any updates via TeX Live Utility (or tlmgr directly) to TeX Live (MacTeX) 2009. If you use TLU or tlmgr to do updates you may get one last update (if you haven't updated for a while) but from then one you will always get a report that there are No Updates Available.
However, it will be possible to update via the 'last' update!? Yes?
I'm so new to TeX and TeXShop that I have not yet used TeX Live Utility or tlmgr directly.
HS> The principle reason this sort of thing happens is that it is a relatively small group of folks (for such a large project) that put this all together for us and they can't afford to expend their resources in updating the present version of TeX Live while also putting together then next version.
Understood, and thanks for the excellent work you and others are doing. Much appreciated.
