CTAN submission – new version of TeXmacs
GNU TeXmacs is a free scientific text editor, which was both inspired by TeX and GNU Emacs. The editor allows you to write structured documents via a wysiwyg (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) and user friendly interface. New styles may be created by the user. The program implements high-quality typesetting algorithms and TeX fonts, which help you to produce professionally looking documents. The high typesetting quality still goes through for automatically generated formulas, which makes TeXmacs suitable as an interface for computer algebra systems. TeXmacs also supports the Guile/Scheme extension language, so that you may customize the interface and write your own extensions to the editor. TeXmacs currently runs on PC's and PPC's under Gnu/linux (a >200MHz processor and >32Mb of memory are recommended) and on sun computers. Converters exist for TeX/LaTeX and they are under development for Html/Mathml/Xml. In the future, TeXmacs is planned to evoluate towards a complete scientific office suite, with spreadsheet capacities, a technical drawing editor and a presentation mode.

Thanks for the upload. I installed the new version as suggested in CTAN:/tex-archive/systems/unix/TeXmacs/ replacing the old one. Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team
TeXmacs – Structured text editor for TeX
TeXmacs is a “structured text editor” with special support for mathematical expressions. The typesetting quality of the produced documents is intended to be as high as possible, i.e., comparable to the quality of documents produced with TeX; The user interface aims to be as natural and powerful as possible. In particular, the text you see on the screen corresponds exactly to what you get after printing. TeXmacs comes with a typed lisp extension language. Like emacs, this allows you for instance to redefine keyboard and menu actions. TeXmacs can also be used as an interface for computer algebra systems. In particular, automatically generated mathematical formulas are typeset in a satisfactory way. It is possible to generate LaTeX and PostScript output from TeXmacs. After compilation, the LaTeX output will resemble the PostScript output, although we guarantee no complete compatibility between TeXmacs and TeX. It is also possible to import “well written” LaTeX documents. The present release includes an interface with Ghostscript, which enables you to include PostScript (and some other formats) of images.
