Binary Distributions

The latest release is version 2.1. Its new features are:

Add support for unicode math with translation table
LaTeX formulas may now contain non-ascii characters. It is possible to translate these non-ascii characters with an internal look-up table, so that the formula can be converted using LaTeX2e.
Handle subprocess stdin and stdout encoding properly
Sometimes the encoding of stdin or stdout is not set, fall back to the systems default in this case. This is only applied when using the new -R switch.
Set UTF-8 as encoding for all LaTeX documents
By setting UTF-8 as default encoding for LaTeX documents, it is easiest to convert the documents in a cross-platform manner.


At the release page, you can see two zip files. The file labelled with stand-alone is the one to pick, if GladTeX should be run as a stand-alone binary or within a non-python project. The file containing embeddable in its name, is meant for python applications, build with py2exe and python3.4, so that they can share the DLL files.

Debian/Ubuntu And Other Derivatives

On one of the mentioned systems, just type

apt-get install gladtex

and proceed with man gladtex.
