On Mon, 24 Jan 2005, Basil Malyshev submitted an update for BaKoMa TeX 7.0 (issued 23-Jan-2004). Location on CTAN: nonfree/systems/win32/bakoma Announcement text:
Important feature of BaKoMa TeX 7 is one new program: `BaKoMa TeX Word'. Key Features: BaKoMa TeX Word is True WYSIWYG LaTeX Editor. The word `True' is used to highlight two following facts: 1) It is True WYSIWYG Editor. It means that display shows precisely the same what will be printed. It looks such that you edit your document immediately in DVI Viewer. 2) It is True LaTeX Editor. It edits LaTeX source text without any import/export procedure. It means that you can load and edit any LaTeX 2e document. BaKoMa TeX Word is built on top of BaKoMa TeX graphic engine and consequently it inherits all features of BaKoMa TeX related with import graphics, font support, and document export. So, it imports: EPS, PDF, JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, PCX, MSP, BMP, WMF, EMF, FIG, HPGL, and DXY. It supports fonts: OpenType (OTF/TTF), TrueType, Postscript Type1 (including MM), Type 3, and TeX PK/VF. It exports: DVI, PDF, SVG, PS, PNG (with HTML wrapper), and HTML (TeX4HT). It includes built-in PostScript interpreter accessible via DVIPS compatible special interface that supports such macro packages as: Prosper, PSTricks, PSFrag, graphics (psfig), draftcopy, etc. Editing Prosper's slides in WYSIWTYG interface is one impressive feature of `BaKoMa TeX Word'. Another important application of `BaKoMa TeX Word' is final step corrections of LaTeX papers before publishing. More information about `BaKoMa TeX Word' is at: <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/win32/bakoma/programs/texword.html> Some snapshots are available at: <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/win32/bakoma/snapshots/> Root of BaKoMa TeX distributions is at: <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/win32/bakoma/>
Thanks for the update, I installed it. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
