Something I just remarked, not specific to this release: the keyboard  
shortcuts for Indent/Unindent are incompatible with the French Mac  

On this keyboard, [ and ] require Alt-Shift combinations, namely

(		= (
Shift-(		= 5
Alt-(		= {
Alt-Shift-(	= [

)		- )
Shift-)		= °
Alt-)		= }
Alt-Shift-)	= ]

TeXworks uses the shortcuts:

Cmd-Shift-]	= Comment
Cmd-Shift-[	= Uncomment
Cmd-]		= Indent
Cmd-[		= Unindent

To access either, you need to use Cmd-Alt-Shift-) and Cmd-Alt-Shift- 
( on the French Mac keyboard. You get Comment and Uncomment, but no  
Indent and Unindent.

If memory serves right, there used to be a similar problem on the Mac  
with the Classic versions (<= 2.1) of Textures, though I think the  
shortcuts failed by yielding nothing in return (neither Indent/ 
Unindent nor Comment/Uncomment).

Happy vacation!
