Norbert Preining announced the release of a new graphic user interface for TeX Live, the TeX Live Cockpit.
The TL Cockpit
- works on top of the TeX Live Manager aka tlmgr
- provides an interface to TeX Live options
- gives a handy package list
- allows backups and restoring of packages besides updating
- offers an expert interface for entering shell commands
- is written in Scala, so it has the style of the underlying operating system – but a modern Java is required.
