Full announcement
I am happy to announce the new stable release 1.0.4 of TeXmacs. The main improvements with respect to TeXmacs-1.0.3 are: * A (very) experimental Windows version (alpha) http://www.texmacs.org/tmweb/download/windows.en.html as well as the official inclusion of TeXmacs into Cygwin. * Higher reactivity for editing large documents and faster booting and loading of files. * A lot of new documentation about the TeXmacs document format, environment variables and tags. * Possibility to work with TrueType fonts instead of Type 3 fonts. * New interfaces with Python, Clisp, Cmucl and Matlab. * Thorough reorganization of the style files, implementation of "mutator" tags, and location-awareness of internal trees. * Support for the Danish language and partial translation of the documentation into Polish. ----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested replacing the previous version in CTAN:systems/unix/TeXmacs/ Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

macs – Structured text editor for

macs 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 ; 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. macs comes with a typed lisp extension language. Like emacs, this allows you for instance to redefine keyboard and menu actions. macs 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 and PostScript output from macs. After compilation, the output will resemble the PostScript output, although we guarantee no complete compatibility between macs and . It is also possible to import “well written” documents. The present release includes an interface with Ghostscript, which enables you to include PostScript (and some other formats) of images.
