I installed prosper just now :)

When trying to use prosper with texpower, a problem similar
to pdfscreen's slide environment occurs: Apparently, prosper
puts the whole contents of the slide environment into a box.
>From inside a box, \stepwise cannot access \shipout, which is
necessary for the ddynamic build process.

The solution is the same as for pdfscreen: Put \stepwise
outside \begin{slide}...\end{slide}.

The result of my first experiment with prosper can be found
under

It requires a bit of fiddling and there are still some quirks
(like repeated bookmark entries), but I hope I can sort this
out for the 0.0.9 release. There will be a full-blown prosper
demo then, in any case.
