TeXShop 3.10 is available via the Sparkle update mechanism and at


The preference settings for pdftex and pdflatex no longer contain the
flag "--shell-escape"; this is a major feature of this release.

Please read "About This Release" in the TeXShop Help menu
for instructions on modifying old Preference settings.

We kept this flag around to enable eps --> pdf conversion for old source
files, to enable tiff --> png conversion during typesetting, and to allow
tex4ht to call "convert" during its operation. The "About This Release"
document explains why how these barriers were overcome. Thanks
in particular to the TeX Live folks for restricted shell escape, which
is already present in TeX Live 2011.
