Today, TeX Live 2012 has been released. TeX Live is a comprehensive TeX and LaTeX system for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other Unix systems. A special version called MacTeX 2012 is available for Mac OS X.

Changes to TeX Live 2011:

  • tlmgr supports updates from multiple network repositories.
  • The parameter \XeTeXdashbreakstate is set to 1 by default. This allows line breaks after em-dashes and en-dashes, which has always been the behavior of other engines and formats such as plain TeX, LaTeX, and LuaTeX. Explicitly set \XeTeXdashbreakstate to 0 for perfect line-break compatibility for existing XeTeX documents.
  • The output files generated by pdftex and dvips, among others, can now exceed 2gb.
  • The 35 standard PostScript fonts are included in the output of dvips by default.
  • In the restricted \write18 execution mode, set by default, mpost is now an allowed program.
  • A texmf.cnf file is also found in ../texmf-local, e.g., /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c/texmf.cnf, if it exists.
  • The updmap script reads a per-tree updmap.cfg instead of one global config.
  • Platforms: armel-linux and mipsel-linux added; sparc-linux and i386-netbsd are no longer in the main distribution, but are available for installation as custom binaries, along with a variety of other platforms.
