Hi, thanks for reminding me, Dalyoung!

I announced it on the ConTeXt list, but not here:
The latest (2004.11.23) ConTeXt (<http://www.pragma-ade.nl/context/
current/>  -- also available through i-Installer) includes proper XeTeX
support. I give some details on how to install, run, and get started with
XeConTeXt at:

...If someone who works regularly with the TeX IDEs (TeXShop, iTM) wants
to help out by distributing directions for running `texexec --xtx` in
those programs, that would be appreciated, too.

One area where XeConTeXt could use some help is in CJK support. I'm
pretty naïve about those issues, and I have no test documents to work with.

Feedback welcome!
