On my way to squashing one of the TexPoint bugs, I stumbled upon Andreas Glatz’s page on his patched version of TexPoint, currently at version 2.6.1 and version 2.7 is said to be released sometime around mid-October. I guess I will try Andreas’ version a bit later.
Looking at the development log of Andreas’ page, it seems that Andreas started the development after George Necula, who started TexPoint, released version 2.0.3 in October 2003. Meanwhile, George has not released any newer version yet.
Curiously, there is also a Mac version! Interesting… (although I really don’t have any money to buy a PowerBook yet.)
