Jonathan> As always, let me know of any problems that show up.

As you wish :-)  I just tried to compile a file which compiled OK
until the upgrade.  It dies now while reading xetex.def.  Here's the
start of the log:

! Illegal unit of measure (pt inserted).
<to be read again> 
l.486  \dimen@=\XeTeXrevision
Dimensions can be in units of em, ex, in, pt, pc,
cm, mm, dd, cc, bp, or sp; but yours is a new one!
I'll assume that you meant to say pt, for printer's points.
To recover gracefully from this error, it's best to
delete the erroneous units; e.g., type `2' to delete
two letters. (See Chapter 27 of The TeXbook.)

! LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document}.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

Cheers, José
