[NTG-context] texexec is deprecated?

Hi all,

I did a quick standalone install of Mark IV:

mkdir ~/context
cd ~/context
wget http://minimals.contextgarden.net/setup/first-setup.sh
sh first-setup.sh --modules=all --context=current --engine=luatex’)

Set the correct paths and env in `~/.bashrc':

# Add ConTeXt
source ~/context/tex/setuptex

export PATH

(By the way, the latest lmtx installer is missing the `setuptex' file.)

I was able to use `context’ but not `texexec’. The latter (`texexec —pdf test.tex’) tells me that some format file (`cont-en.fmt’) can’t be found.

Is `texexec’ obsolete?

The 2013 ConTeXt manual still uses it, though.
