Thanks, but I would like to point out that with the modifications 
described by Andrey Grozin in this thread, WinTeXmacs 1.0.5 seems to 
work with Maxima 5.12.0.

Maybe someone could put a notice and a link to the necessary files to
http://maxima.sourceforge.net/relatedprojects.shtml , as it was done 
with version 5.10.0, since it is a bit inconvenient if one has to 
download the current Unix TeXmacs version only to extract these files.

As far as CygTeXmacs is concerned - does it really cooperate with the 
Windows version of Maxima? I tried it a while ago - firstly it ran even 
slower than WinTeXmacs (which is not very fast, either), and secondly it 
did not recognize the CAS installed (then Maxima 5.10.0 and Yacas). If I 
remember right, it could not even access a drive other than C:.

Kind regards

Uwe
