----- Forwarded message from David Kastrup -----
I have uploaded a new release of the preview-latex package, as a file
preview-latex-0.5.8.tar.gz to ftp.dante.de.  It should be installed as
previously, as one archive file in CTAN:support/preview-latex, and the
README file should be unpacked into that directory.

License is GPL.

Release focus are user interface additions and skeletons for XEmacs
support (not yet working, volunteers welcome).

Here is an excerpt from the README:

Purpose of the package is to embed LaTeX environments such as display
math or figures into the source buffers.  By mouse-clicking, you can
open the original text.  After editing, another click will just run
the region in question through LaTeX and redisplay the new results.

Thr project is just starting.  Current state of affairs: you need to
get access to a version of Emacs 21.  The public release 21.1 should
be ok for starters.  Pretest versions before that have problems.

You also need AucTeX installed and working, and probably a fairly
recent version of GhostScript.  At the current point of time, XEmacs
is not supported.  Work is underway to change that in future versions,
contributions would be welcome.

Offers to support further development will be appreciated.

Thanks for the upload.  I installed the new version in the directory
CTAN:/tex-archive/support/preview-latex as suggested and removed the
old version.
