Hi there,

You can download the test version under

The binaries are in
I called this version 2.0d because I used the developers kit version 2.0d

which caused the -f command line option to fail.

If you intend to use the tex2xindy filter, you also need this:
(Only the file tex2xindy.l changed)

It fixes several bugs, one of which caused tex2xindy to fail to work at all

with: xindy ex1.xdy ex1.raw, generating an empty file ex1.ind and the screen
output ex1.log. (I don't know the reason yet.) However, everything else works.

If you test this version, please tell me if it works (or not) on your
system! Please don't forget to tell me which Linux distribution/version you
