For the 2019 release of TeX Live we intend to provide a new GUI
front-end for the installer. By now, it could benefit from wider
Just add a parameter '-gui tcl' to install-tl or to
install-tl-windows[.bat] and you shall see the new GUI rather than
one of the old ones.
The Windows .exe installer has gotten a fourth option 'Experimental'
which also invokes the new GUI.
The new GUI uses the Tcl/Tk scripting language. This is a standard
component of Mac OS. For Windows, a runtime is provided. But
Linux/Unix users may have to install something. e.g., on
Debian-based systems, 'apt install tk' should pull in everything
Localization: The Dutch localization is mostly complete. For other
languages than English or Dutch, be prepared to see a mixture of
English and native text strings.
