For those doing a MacTeX-2020 pretest.

Herbert Schulz
Howdy,

There is an updated (final?) version of MacTeX and BasicTeX that are going out to the pretest repositories. I know they are already at the math.utah.edu pretest repository, <http://ftp.math.utah.edu/pub/texlive/tlpretest/>.

If you have been doing MacTeX-2020/TeX Live 2020 testing please download and install this version. The files are `mactex-20200407.pkg' and `mactex-basictex-20200407.pkg' for MacTeX-2020 and BasicTeX-2020 respectively and there are corresponding .md5 checksum files.

I suspect final release is coming fairly soon. Then it will take up to a week for that to get to all the repositories and for updates to start arriving at the usual repositories for access via TLU/tlmgr.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz

Should one delete a previous TL 2020 folder /usr/local/texlive/2020 first, before running the new mactex-20200407.pkg?

Howdy,

That would be the most desirable method but, I believe (don't take my word for this) the Installer app is smart enough to only install changes. You might not even have to re-run `updmap-user` since the distribution is for the same year as before.

TLU will have no changes from the pretest repository and may lead to errors if you try to use a regular repository.

Good Luck,

To be safe, I renamed /usr/local/texlive/2020 to something else, then ran the new mactex-20200407.pkg.

I did _not)_have to re-run `updmap-user’ !
