What's new in TeX Live Utility 1.17:

  • Update mirror list, notably because U of Washington made a gratuitous server name change and then whined about it
  • Sign frameworks and helper applications for (hopefully) better compatibility with Mavericks. Thanks for nothing, Apple (meaning your documentation of this).
  • Remove some cruft from Localizable.strings files
  • Workaround for prompt to install developer tools on Mavericks. This will still be an issue if you run tlmgr from the command line.

TeX Live Utility is a free and open source Mac OS X graphical interface for TeX Live Manager that aims to provide a native Mac OS X interface for the most commonly used functions of the TeX Live Manager command-line tool.

Why should you use TeX Live Utility when you can use the command line tlmgr or the Perl/Tk GUI?

Because TeX Live Utility performs TeX Live infrastructure updates using the Disaster Recovery script, which avoids problems with tlmgr removing itself while updating.

What's more, there's no compelling reason to switch from the command line or X11 GUI if you're you're comfortable with them.

Detailed instructions on how to install and use TeX Live Utility on your Mac are available HERE.
