i-Installer 2.85 has been released.

• Version 2.85.
• Buglet fix: Do not display archive chunks in Pkg Contents tab. An  
earlier fix here to enable the display of compressed tar archives  
other than those of the i-Package chunks (which are displayed  
together as "Archive") was too liberal.
• Added code to handle multiple default install locations. Not  
documented in Help yet.
• Changed code that might or might not lead to a crash (autoreleased  
item changed to retained / released as possibly the event loop  
• Added check for missing or empty PATH in environment
• Added check if i-Installer itself was changed by a succesful install.

I still need to look into some reports that suffer from the fact that  
basic files are not found during configuration. These extra checks  
may help.

The MusixTeX i-Package has been updated. It contains info on both old  
and new TeX locations which are useful for i-Installer 2.85 and  
ignored in earlier versions.

If you have both the TeX and the TeX Live i-Package installed in  
default locations, it will offer you a choice where it will install  
itself. If you have installed the TeX Live i-Package and removed the  
old /usr/local/teTeX install, it will offer to change the install  
location from /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local to /usr/local/ 

It is my intention to change all TeX Support i-Packages (CM-Super, CB- 
Greek, ConTeXt-Updater) likewise.

Note: given my deadline (I fly to Marrakech for TUG2006 next  
Saturday, I have only 2 days or so left to finish this, so testing  
and reports remain welcome).
