Dear TeX users,
- The TUG 2010 conference in San Francisco was a great success. Video
recordings of several talks are already available at
http://river-valley.tv/conferences/tug-2010 (thanks to Kaveh Bazargan
and River Valley Technologies).

selected articles from TUGboat by each of the Stanford TeX project
members. A capsule description of each person's contributions to the
TeX world is included. The book also includes a foreword by Barbara
Beeton and many drawings by Duane Bibby, some especially commissioned

from the TUG store (and will be in online bookstores soon). Also, the
full PDF is available online to TUG members in the members area.
