Developer website: Andrew Trevorrow

OzTeX is a Mac implementation of Donald Knuth's TeX typesetting system. TeX is mainly used in the academic community for the production of theses, papers and books, or wherever high-quality output is desired. It is particularly good at typesetting mathematics.

What's New

Version 5.2 adds the following:
  • A number of parameters in OzTeX's Default config file have been changed to match Gerben Wierda's latest teTeX installation.
  • The oz-tex2pdf script (called by the tex2pdf item) has been modified so it will run latex on files that have "%&latex" as their first line.
  • If the item name in an extra_tools entry matches an existing item then the earlier entry is replaced (instead of a new item being appended). This makes it easy to replace one or more Default items.
  • Selecting a user-defined Tools menu item no longer closes the View window.
  • Fixed a Panther bug that caused some people to see a dramatic slowdown when viewing a DVI page containing PK fonts.
  • On Panther and later, the "Force PostScript Printing" item is always ticked and the item is disabled so you can't change it. I've done this because Gimp-Print comes with Panther and it allows PostScript to be printed on non-PostScript devices.
  • Fixed a Panther problem in all Oz* apps that prevented windows from being dragged up next to the menu bar.
  • Avoid high CPU usage when the mouse button is down but not actually moving. This occurred when clicking to magnify a DVI page, or when selecting and scrolling text in an Oz* window.

Requirements

Mac OS 8.6 or later, CarbonLib.
