Re: pdflatex from TeXLive produces much bigger pdf-file than in teTeX?

the last upgrade in testing made me transit from tetex to texlive.
All works fine but my impression is that pdflatex now produces much
bigger (more than twice as big) pdf-file (~ 600 pages) as before with tetex.
Has any one else made similar experiences?
I hope you mean the file size has increased, not the page count.
The newer pdflatex embeds all (most?) fonts in the pdf file. Try
running pdffonts on pdf files produced by different versions of
pdflatex. I believe this is typically what you want, especially when
outputting camera-ready pdfs for printing, etc.
