macOS New App Release – Compositor 1.1

Screenshot1

Product Announcements – Independent developer, Karl Traunmueller Linz, Austria has released Compositor 1.1, the next version of the WYSIWYG LaTeX Mac app that brings real-time WYSIWYG capabilities to LaTeX, the document preparation system widely used in academia for preparation of scientific and technical publications.

The cornerstone of this release is an upgrade of the app’s built-in typesetting engine. Version 1.1 is now running e-TeX, an extended version of TeX developed by the NTS (“New Typesetting System”) project to address some of the limitations of Donald Knuth’s original 1980s design of TeX.

With many LaTeX packages depending on e-TeX’s enhanced features nowadays, the upgrade represents an important step towards broader support for commonly used LaTeX packages. Besides the update to the embedded typesetting engine, version 1.1 also fixes some bugs with font selection in the DVI renderer, the part that renders TeX’s output to the screen.

To rapidly evolve the product into the go-to solution for LaTeX on the Mac, Karl Traunmueller, the developer, plans to ship updates every 4 to 6 weeks throughout the year. The next version, 1.2, scheduled for release by end of April, will bring improved support for more commonly used LaTeX packages.

Features:

  • Zero-turnaround, real-time typesetting
  • Modern WYSIWYG interface
  • Simple drag & drop installation; no additional software required
  • Automatic, on-demand extension package installation
  • No proprietary document format, compatible with regular plain text .tex files
  • Based on texlive, a comprehensive standard LaTeX distribution

A fully-functional 60-day free trial is available for download from the product’s website. Licenses can be purchased from the product’s online store at an early-adopter price of $19 (USD). The purchase includes all future updates, including major version updates.
