Right now I am working on a new utility which shall replace the texdoc batch utility. The one big drawback in texdoc is that it often fails to locate package-related documentation. For example, the invocation
doesn't work because the main documentation file is named memman.pdf.
The new utility (working title: mthelp) uses the package manager to locate package-related documentation, i.e.,
opens memman.pdf for viewing.
I am still searching for a nice name.

I have released a new version of MiKTeX Tools for Unix-like operating systems. This is a bug fix release:
- The previous Beta installed files with permissions -rw-------. This has been changed to -rw-r--r--.
- A GCC 3.x.x compilation issue has been fixed in the header file core.h.

The MiKTeX package manager currently supports only Microsoft cabinet files. This makes it a little hard (impossible) to do packaging on a non-Windows system. Therefore, I have decided to implement in MiKTeX 2.5 support for bzip2 compressed tar files.
