Hello all,

I am pleased to announce that the new ConTeXt release from Hans Hagen
can be downloaded as of now from the Pragma ADE website or one of its


If you have not updated your Latin Modern fonts in the past
month, then you will need to fetch the latest redistribution
of the LM fonts as well:


In the course of the following days, both files will also become
available from the regular CTAN nodes.

New features compared to the 2005.10.27 version:

   * Additional dvips map files for Latin Modern
   * context-base.map removed
   * support for Waldi's Symbols added
   * support for intercolumn spaces in natural tables
   * support for extension of definitions inside assignments

Bugs fixed since the 2005.10.27:

   * mptopdf sometimes had trouble starting the pdfetex executable
   * sometimes externalimage-s in metafun disappeared
   * EC encoded text in math mode should now be ok (\ccaron c.s.)
   * lots of small register (index) fixes to newtexutil
   * a bug in \type that prevented the compilation of the pdftex manual.
   * some other (minor) bugs

The current release has version 2005.11.11. As usual, there is a
page with much more detailed release notes available on the Wiki,

Happy TeXing,
