Although the MacTeX(TeX Live)-2010 pretest installer was updated to mactex20100617.zip yesterday I'd give it a day or so before it will be on the pretest repositories.

Because the new version of the installer wasn't available yet I ran TeX Live Utility and this is the first time I remember that updating my pretest actually updated the binaries (although I knew if could before). Unfortunately I needed to rebuild the format files (I doubt this problem exists with the installer) for xetex and luatex. Everything else, including asy 1.98, seems to work fine.

Good Luck,
