A few weeks ago Shinsaku Fujita submitted a new update of XyMTeX to CTAN. Why is this worth mentioning? Because of two (or three) reasons:
- The last update to CTAN has been quite some while ago (years?) so only v4.06 (new in 2009) was available when the current version had long stepped to 5.00 (new in 2010). had therefore been moved to the obsolete branch on CTAN and wasn’t part of TeX Live
- had always had a rather tedious to use manual which was the main reason why I had never used it.

This is indeed good news since I have many structures in Xymtex and hopefully they will be useful any further. Mostly about structures that are derived from cholesterol and steran. I could make them available somewhere for general use.
Myself I’m not a $\XyMTeX$ user but I’m quite sure there are people who’d be interested.
