<h2>Bugs</h2>

<ul>
<li> 2002/06/14: [<b>texmf tree</b>]:
MonTeX on CD is Implementation Level IIa, 02.03 dated February 1999, while
the current one from CTAN is Implementation Level IV dated December 2001.
Please fetch a new one from your local CTAN mirror.

<li> 2002/06/07: [<b>several archs</b>]
Calling tex/latex with the option --src on 
<!-- the following -->
certain arch/os combinations declare themselves WRONGLY as TeX, while
they do NOT pass the trip test. This happens ONLY when you use the
--src option. You should be able to download correct binaries soon.
Watch the <a href="#updates">Updates</a> section below for news.
 
<!--You can download correct binaries for these architectures
by clicking on the relevant arch/os combination and unpacking the
file into the directory that holds the binaries. Please note that only
those binaries are included which are not correct, so do NOT delete
your TeXlive/bin directory!
<ul>
<li><a href=...>DEC Alpha/linux</a>
<li> ...
</ul-->

<li> 2002/06/06: [<b>i386/linug</b>]
The (o)xdvi.bin can NOT be used on older i386/linux
systems due to library incompatibilities. These systems include
(but are not restricted to) Redhat 6.2, SuSE 6.4 and Debian Potato.
<!-- Working binaries for these arch/os combinations can be
downloaded from <a href=...>here</a-->
Working binaries for these arch/os combinations will be put up as 
soon as they are available.
</ul>
