[OS X TeX] Which Alpha ... ??

Still waiting for the native Alpha. There are a number of shortcomings with
Alpha TK. For example:

    - the toolbar bit for show invisibles is gone
    - it refuses to hide
    - \eqnarray completion has no shortcut, no label and doesn't ask for the
number of rows.
    - no drag and drop

Can't think of any more of the top of my head, but it's still beta. It's
also a good bit more expensive than Alpha. That said, it's better than
booting into Classic. One of things I miss most is not having spell check
while you type.
