Dear TeX users,

  members last month, and is available through the TUG store as usual.

- TUGboat: the second issue for 2011 was also mailed to members last
  month, and is available online to members as usual.
  The next issue will be the TUG'11 proceedings, but will likely include
  non-proceedings material as well; deadline October 31, 2011.

  This year's TUG conference will be held in Kerala, India, from
  October 19-21, hosted by River Valley Technologies.  
  Registration, program, and all other info:

- TUG 2012: the dates are not final yet, but it will be in
  Boston, very likely in mid-July.

This will be my last newsletter as TUG president---as of the TUG'11
conference (starting tomorrow), Steve Peter will become president, and
Taco Hoekwater and Michael Doob will be joining us on the board.
Welcome all!  See http://tug.org/election/ for candidates' statements
and information.  And many thanks to Jon Breitenbucher, stepping down at
this point, for his past service on the board.

As always, please don't hesitate to contact us with questions,
suggestions, or information.
