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.

Alas... back in the old times Alpha/OzTeX where my favorite combo.
Registered both of them and I wrote hundreds of pages of great-looking documents.
But in these days I use TeX-Shop with TeX-Live on OS X.
Not as good, but still pretty good.

Why did you give up on the Alpha/OzTeX combination--that's what I'm still using. But I'm worried because they are PPC apps and apparently won't run under OS X 10.7 Lion. What will I do?

It would sure be nice if BibTex were carbonized. I don't typically have Classic running, so it's a bit painful to run BibTex. other than that, it works great!

What are you talking about? You don't need Classic to use BibTeX. Instead of using this shareware junk, install teTeX for *free* with i-Installer or via fink. I use BibTeX through TeXShop all the time, and without paying a dime.

Bibtex from tetex can be runned easily from OzteX under OS X... Just writing the right path !
