Not on my computer (10.5.8 Intel). Once installed, this version  
labelled 3.7.1 comes with a ugly "forbidden passage" symbol upon the  
icon and refuses to open. But I don't mind too much, version 3.5.1  
still works very well.

I don't know this editor. Outside the TeX world, I  use precisely  
Smultron, and sometimes Emacs/Aquamacs when I work heavily with the  
command line.
