No. TeX Live Utility updates TeX Live, but not the other pieces of MacTeX. Thus
it doesn't update Ghostscript, Convert from ImageMagick, TeXShop, BibDesk,
LaTeXiT, or TeXworks.

Some of these use Sparkle to notify you when updates are available. The trickiest
pieces are Ghostscript and Convert because you have to learn of any problems
by reading mailing lists. Usually these aren't updated between yearly
releases, but this year there is a small problem with Convert on the DVD:
it cannot convert compressed tiff files. This is fixed by
"ImageMagick-Convert-6.5.8" at
