Enclosed are latexmk based engines for using latex-dev, lualatex-dev, pdflatex-dev and xelatex-dev with the obvious names latexmk-dev.engine, lualatexmk-dev.engine, pdflatexmk-dev.engine and xelatexmk-dev.engine.

Place those four engines in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines and the four auxiliary *rc files in ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/tslatexmk. The engines will then show up in TeXShop after it's re-started.

The naming convention makes it easy to switch from the normal to the dev version by just adding -dev to the engine name in TeXShop's program (or TS-program) directive.
