3. TeX Development Fund
TUG has initiated a new project: a TeX Development Fund. It was
officially announced at the TUG 2002 conference in India. The idea is
to financially support TeX-related projects to the best of our ability.
Please see http://tug.org/tc/devfund/ for more information and an online
application page, or email devfund at tug.org.
We are pleased to announce that TUGboat 22.1/22.2 (a double issue) is
at the printer and scheduled to be mailed September 26th. The TUGboat
production team is working on the two issues that follow (for 2001) in
hopes they will mail by the end of the year. More news will be
forthcoming regarding Volume 23, which is in the pipeline as well.
If you have ideas for articles you would like to write, or read, please
email the tugboat editorial group at tugboat at tug.org.
5. CTAN CD-ROM's via Dante
Each year, Dante (the German TeX users group, http://www.dante.de),
produces an abstract of the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network compendium
of TeX tools. The 2002 edition has been ordered for TUG members. Look
for this 3-CD set in your mail within the next few weeks.
Your satisfaction as a TUG member is important to us. If you have failed
to receive membership materials, or if your address has changed, please
