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:

- Upcoming TeX conferences:
