JosMaccabiani 5 3 5 5 5 5 1 no no Update after reinstall (of latest version). This is still one of the best plugins around!
DickFurnas 5 5 4 4 4 2 1 yes no Install on Mac OS X Tiger. In Plugin code had to edit $PATHTO* variables. Had to fix $pathSep. Had to fix $cmd for convert: -trim -> -trim +repage Had to edit explicit path to gs in ImageMagic's lib/.../config/delegates.xml for convert to work within TWiki.
JensNeuhalfen 5 3 3 4 4 4 2 no no If I just knew how include amstec in my renderings frown
CrawfordCurrie 4 5 2 5 5 5 2 no no Implementation is fine, but over-use of global variables (and 'my' overrides of the same name) makes me very nervous on mod_perl installs.
StephanMatthiesen 5 5 3 5 5 4 1 no no Installation of the module itself was easy, but getting Latex to cooperate was difficult (see LatexModePluginNotLikedByLatex). However, that is not really the fault of the plugin, but just generally the intricacies of running external programmes in a webserver, getting the permissions and security issues right.
