This is the official site for iTeXMac, iTeXMac2 (the Tiger only version) and SyncTeX. Here you will find valuable infos about your favorite TeX Front End for Mac OS X. Browse the download section for interesting products (LaTeX Help and TeX Catalogue Online wrappers, third party BibDesk, CocoASpell...).

09/26/2006: Gerben Wierda's iInstaller2 has been updated to fix a bug causing data loss. Fortunately, this harmful bug is extremely rare, nevertheless, you should download the new version 2.79.

09/14/2006: Possible problem with iTeXMac version 1.4 when upgrading the system. I have been reported by F. Dorra that iTeXMac v 1.4 MAY not survive some system upgrade (Mac OS X 10.4.5 or more). It may happen that the editor window never gets the focus, such that it is impossible to enter text (I personnaly got this problem in XCode with earlier systems...). He reported that a possible cause is the new Java virtual machine (version 5.0), and a possible workaround is to downgrade this virtual machine (to version 1.2) following apple's instructions. However, some people reported that they did not have such a problem, another mystery...

Prior to installing iTeXMac, you need a working TeX installation. See the download section for details.

01/29/2005:

- It is still time to wish you a happy new year. Well, it is up to us to make it really happy and new...
- The English and german help books are now on the web.
- Due to private problems, there is some delay in releasing iTeXMac 2.0. Moreover XCode on a 800 MHz G4 is sometimes very slow;-(

10/21/2004:

- There is a patch for iTeXMac 1.3.15. An AppleScript feature was broken (and I did not notice this before) This patch does not fix the symbols drawer bug that appeared on some G5.
- iTeXMac 2.0 is growing. The project management is complete, the engine management is quite complete. There is now a really advanced syntax coloring scheme, and document based spell checking.

09/14/2004:

- made a presentation of iTeXMac to TUG 2004 this summer in Xanthi, I met nice people.
- iTeXMac 2.0 is silently coming, with a TeX wrapper and a TeX project design. Here are some slides of my presentation to explain briefly what both are.

02/12/2004:

- iTeXMac 1.3.15 is out.
- My HTML editor did remove some recent code, the following remark might appear full of sense now.
What about the future?
At home, I got a new text editor working that displays α for \alpha, β for \beta, ∑ for \sum, ∀ for \forall and so on...

02/10/2004:

- iTeXMac 1.3.14 is NO LONGER out.
- iTeXMac 1.3.14 is out. See the release notes or download.
Some bugs are fixed, different display modes for synchronization...
What about the future?
At home, I got a new text editor working that displays D for \alpha, r for \beta, f for \sum and so on...

01/28/2004:

- iTeXMac 1.3.13 is out. See the release notes or download.
Major bug fixed that prevented some users to work with the menus...
Some news about forthcoming features: really better syntax parsers, editor and viewer modes, spelling management.

01/27/2004:

- iTeXMac 1.3.12 is out. See the release notes or download.
pdfsync has been updated, there are problems however with amscd, xy and warmread, tabular and \chapter.
It seems that writing good pdfsync macros for ConTeXt is hard. Before Hans Hagen can have a very serious look at it you will find my ConTeXt version of pdfsync.sty in the distribution. There is also something for LaTeX and Plain of course.
In this intermediate release, there is a sensible gain in performance.
Don't throw away the previous version, problems on sourceforge server could cause unexpected troubles in iTeXMac.

01/15/2004:

- You know what, nothing new today.

01/13/2004:

- Version 0.5 of pdfsync.sty is available, see the release notes or download.

01/09/2004:

- There is a now new page dedicated to pdfsync.

01/08/2004:

- I wished Santa would have bring me a new Mac. He just brought me a DVD player, that can play games...
- Beware of a BUG in iTeXMac 1.3.11 concerning the bibliography. Drop me a note if you can't wait for a week.

Happy new year.

12/23/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.11 is out. See the release notes or download.
pdfsync has been updated, there are problems however with amscd, xy and warmread, tabular and \chapter.
It seems that Hans Hagen will try to write a pdfsync.sty like file for ConTeXt. I hope that LaTeX pdfync will benefit from this valuable contribution.

Merry Christmas.

12/05/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.10 is out. See the release notes or download.
Synchronization has lost its experimental status. There is a new test file named LaTeX2e.tex.
- iTeXMac(Key) is now compatible with Panther. See the release notes or download.

11/22/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.bn is out. See the release notes or download.
The German localization bug is fixed, no more gmon.out, and you know what! There is synchronization!

11/04/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.8 is out. See the release notes or download.

11/04/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.7 is out. See the release notes or download.

10/28/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.6 is out. See the release notes or download.
- Happy birthday to me!

10/25/2003:

- After one day, I got things to work. iTeXMac 1.3.5 is out. See the release notes or download. PANTHER SHOULD UPGRADE TO iTM 1.3.5.

10/24/2003:

- Panther comes out today. Unfortunately, iTeXMac does not like Panther. I have fixed some bugs but I could not post an updated version (I hope this is just because I am still using Project Builder instead of XCode...).
The first problem concerns the symbols drawer, where symbols are not displayed at the right location. You can fix the problem issuing in the terminal the following command:
defaults write comp.text.tex.iTeXMac iTMSymbolMenuBug -bool YES
The second problem is more important: you can't see the output when compiling or typesetting. This is due to an old bug that was harmless until today. You must deselect the syntax coloring of the log in the appropriate preference pane.
I am sorry not to release the latest version, but consider that I am also very frustrated...
By the way, here are some forthcoming features: Navigation from source to pdf (sort of synchronization), support for Tom Kiffe's MacDviX, synchronization with alphaX. Cool spelling support for iTM 2.0, and so on...

- iTeXMac(Key) 0.3 is out. See the download. A button has been added to help in configuring the function keys.

10/16/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.4 is out. See the release notes or download. Minor bugs are fixed. a few are still pending. Better support for AlphaX users.

09/30/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3.1 is out. See the release notes or download. The correction of a bug in navigating form source to DVI had disappeared. Do listen to the iTeXMac user list.

- iTeXMac 2.0-prebuild-0 is out. See the release notes or download. BEWARE: this new version will translate your projects! You will no longer be able to compile or typeset from older versions of iTeXMac. This has been released for testing purpose and more particularly for Alpha integration.

- Bonne fête Jérôme!

- Merci LAURENS.

09/22/2003:

- iTeXMac 1.3 is out. See the release notes or download. Do listen to the iTeXMac user list.

- A new development policy with a new versioning system come out today:
User releases are numbered "major.minor". The minor number is increased as soon as a set of working new features is added, without breaking backwards compatibility. The major version number changes each time there is a break in the backward compatibility. Developper realeases are now numbered "major.minor-build". The build version number changes alone until the result is eligible to become a full "major.minor" or "major+1.0" version

- A new list named itexmac-CVS-news has been created to keep track of my management of the cvs tree. It will be available within a few hours according to source forge services. This will help the management and the consulting (CVS integration in Project Builder is...:(, maybe in XCode it will be :)

- Next feature: a new shell script design (already available for a tiny while in version 1.3-GM+ but forwarded to 2.0.0) coming with a new UI design for projects, then better support of spell checking.

09/12/2003:

- Bad news: iTeXMac 1.3 GM is buggy. I fixed a problem related to the PDF viewer, but iTM still does not typeset anymore. I removed the files from sourceforge. Some mirrors will propose it however.

- I will try to update this site more frequently, as soon as I work on iTeXMac more than an hour...

- To fix the bug above, I am currently implementing a new shell script management. Problems with spaces in paths solved.
