Dear TeX user,
The latest news from TUG:
- Production on the TeX Collection 2004 software (TeX Live, proTeXt, CTAN)
is well underway; the DVD's and CD's are being pressed. We hope to
ship the discs by the end of the year; it depends on mailing delays, etc.
- TUGboat 24(2) has shipped to TUG members for 2003. If you
were not a member then, you can order printed copies through the TUG
store (http://tug.org/store/). It is also available online:
- TUG has begun an initiative for an online publication, focused on
short, practical items. We have collected some material for a first
issue. At this point, we'd like to ask for volunteers to work on the
LaTeX style (started but nowhere near complete), and/or proofreaders.
If you'd like to help, please email pracjourn at tug.org.
- 2005 is an election year for TUG. If you are interested in running
for TUG president or serving on the TUG board, the deadline for
nominations is February 1, 2005. For forms and information:
