Hello Dick,

thanks for your hints. I've installed mactex-20160520.pkg on a MacBook Pro mid 2012 running 10.9.5. There were no problems installing the package. Also, I can still compile some documents I wrote with TL2015/pdflatex without any problems. This looks good.

I think this is somewhat irritating. It seems that the new TLU does not include another switch side-by-side the old preference pane? I still only have the preference pane, as before, haven't I? I would prefer to switch to TLU altogether and delete the preference pane in existing installations in order to have /one/ place for switching between distributions and binaries.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
