- We are happy to pass on the news that UK-TUG (http://uk.tug.org) has
  given generous support to the TeX Gyre (fonts) and TeXWorks (front
  end) projects, which TUG has also been sponsoring.  (TUG's overall
  development roadmap document is available via

- TUG was selected as one of the organizations to participate in
  Google's Summer of Code 2008, and three projects were funded:
  Christoph Hafmeister with MathTran, Arthur Reutenauer with improving
  Unicode support in TeX extensions, and Mojca Miklavec on enhancing the
  TeXShow documentation system.  http://tug.org/gsoc/ has more info.

- Finally, work on TeX Live 2008 continues apace; the developers
