XeTeX version 0.6 is available for download at


or an i-Installer package is available at


(use File/New from URL... in i-Installer to open from this location).

	- more accurate positioning of text using AAT fonts (using a 
workaround for an ATSUI text layout positioning bug)
	- scaling and rotation options to \XeTeXpicfile and \XeTeXpdffile 
modified for better compatibility with LaTeX graphicx package
	- new \specials for rotation and scaling of arbitrary material:
		\special{x:scale X Y} % X and Y are decimal scale factors
		\special{x:rotate D} % D is rotation in degrees

The sample files will be updated soon to include examples of these; not 
sure if I'll get that posted today, though.

As always, feedback (even bug reports) welcome!
