I just heard of pdfsync for the first time and wanted to try it with my 
PhD thesis and TeXShop. For some reasons it didn't work. Now, before I 
start nailing the problem down and posting a minimal example, a simple 
question: Is pdfsync already in a state where it should work with more 
complex documents (I use, among other things, jurabib, multibib, 
hyperref, easymovie) or isn't it just there yet? Is it usable in 
TeXShop without too much changing of existing documents?

And getting OT: What's happening with iTeXMac and TeXShop? Has 
development stopped or can we expect updates in the future? There's 
none to little information on their webpages.
