TeXShop 3.89 is available via the Sparkle update mechanism and from

	http://pages.uoregon.edu/koch/texshop/texshop.html <http://pages.uoregon.edu/koch/texshop/texshop.html>

From now on, the first two items in the TeXShop Help Menu will be "About This Release" and "Changes". The first, which has been there for some time, describes any new features that require user action. For instance, new macros must be added by the user because the Macro Menu Items are user-editable. Often there are no such required actions.

The Changes document has been available on the TeXShop web page, as "What's New" in the TeXShop Help Panel, and in the announcement of changes provided by Sparkle. It will continue to be provided at these spots, but the Help Menu is probably the easiest place to find it. Scanning the latest changes is recommended because many new features are not obvious just by looking at the interface.

Key features of this release are the ability to select text within a begin-end pair, the ability to select text within an xml tag pair, and new engines in the InActive Directory to support PreTeXt, an exciting development by Rob Beezer at the University of Puget Sound. PreTeXt files are written in a version of xml, with mathematical content in standard LaTeX. The same source can then be typeset to a pdf file for an article or book, or to html for the web, or to EPub for computing pads. In the later two cases, interactive content is possible.
