Hello . I have got next message from tcl/tk beta3

() 1 % package require Tkhtml 3.0
Keyword 'catch' not found where expected.
() 2 %

This is a new check. How to solve this problem ?
Thank you. Leonid

Just tried this on Linux and had no problem loading this package. My
session, roughly:

% ... get the distribution ...
% ./ActiveTcl8.6.0.0b3.292682-linux-ix86-threaded/ --
directory FOX
% ./FOX/bin/teacup install Tkhtml 3
% ./FOX/bin/tclsh8.6
% package require Tkhtml 3
% exit

Some questions.

What platform are you on ?
Do you get this message only for Tkhtml 3, or for other packages as
well ?
Did you install your AT 8.6 into a separate directory, or is is
sharing with other/older AT installations ?
If it is sharing please install into a separate directory and try if
that is ok.
