Dear gang,

There is a bug in the latest ConTeXt that affects aleph, particularly 
\pardir TRT. Needless to say this is an absolute showstopper...

Try this:

\pardir TLT



$>aleph test

works fine, but

$>texexec --tex=aleph test

gives an error:

This is Aleph, Version 3.141592-1.15-2.1-0.0-rc4 (Web2c 7.5.3)
 \write18 enabled.

Two more notes:

1. There is a complaint that

 : eTeX version 201 -> too old (bugs)

2. There is no aleph.ini file in mswincontext so I had to import it from 
\TeXLive to make the format. Also manfnt is missing in mswincontext; should 
not the minimal context installation also support the plain format?

Thnx as always
