The eighth CTAN bugfix release has the following improvements:
* On Windows 95/98/ME LaTeXPiX crashed because it could not retrieve a 
  registry value. This retrieval is removed for now until a good solution 
  is found.
* All preferences are now stored in the registry instead of in a .set file.
* Added PDF preview possibility.
* It is now possible to set a fixed executable path for your LaTeX 
  executable, DVI preview and DVI-to-PDF convertor. In the old situation 
  is was assumed that you used latex.exe, yap.exe and dvitopdfm.exe. Also, 
  these files had to be specified in the Windows "path" statement. When 
  this was not the case the preview process failed. Now you can set fixed 
  paths and specifiy your favorite set of executable to use for the 
* Added copy and paste to clipboard commands.
