Dear ConTeXt developers and users,

Please excuse me for bothering you with such a trivial question, but I 
still would really appreciate your help.

I've downloaded the current ConTeXt version and generated the format 
files. Now, when I try to invoke texexec to process a test file 
("\starttext Test \stoptext") the script complains the following way:


This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.14159-1.10a-2.1 (Web2C 7.4.4) (format=cont-en 
2006.4.8)  8 APR 2006 10:50
entering extended mode
\write18 enabled.
**&cont-en test.tex

ConTeXt  ver: 2006.03.25 13:21  fmt: 2006.4.8  int: english  mes: english

systems         : pdfTeX version 110 -> please update

systems         : eTeX version 201 -> too old (bugs)

language        : language en is active


bodyfont        : 12pt rm is loaded

<to be read again>


! Font \*7ptrmtf*=ec-lmr7 not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.
<to be read again>



Could you please advise me what I'm supposed to do to have the metric 
files found and whether I must update my obsolete pdfTeX and eTeX to 
handle the problem.

Also, I'm interested if Russian language is supported by ConTeXt "out of 
the box" or not.

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,
Pavel Stupin.
