Today we released MathType 6.5 for Windows. The 
complete press release is included below and is 
also available on our website at 

Starting with this release, we are positioning 
MathType as a universal editor for mathematical 
notation. MathType already works with hundreds of 
applications and websites and we are now 
maintaining a list of them online in our MathType 
Interoperability Registry. This is just the

websites as easy as plain text.
