Dear all,

Just a follow-up: I upgraded to the experimental version, and most  
things work. However, there is a problem with pdftex + mapfiles: pdftex  
now expects mapfiles in a different location than before; my own maps  
wouldn't work anymore so I couldn't use the fonts I installed myself.  
Hans Hagen posted something on the ConTeXt mailing list that I forward

I did this, regenerated the maps with sudo updmap, and now everything  
seems to be working. Hope this might help somebody.

All best
