Dear TeX users,

- We are pleased to announce the proceedings of the EuroTeX 2005
    conference, produced by DANTE e.V. and jointly published
    by many TeX user groups: DANTE, CervanTeX, GUST, GUT,
    NTG, TUG, and UKTUG.  It is the first of the three TUG
    publications for 2006, although it's not a numbered
    TUGboat issue as such.  The printed volume was mailed
    (from Germany) to current (2006) TUG members a few days ago.
    Immediate online access to journal articles is now
    available only to TUG members.  The proceedings articles
    will be publicly available around May 20, 2007.  The
    introductions, conference photos, etc., are available
    now.  http://tug.org/TUGboat/Contents/contents27-0.html
    If you're not already a member, we hope you'll consider
    joining TUG or another TeX user group, to support these
    publications, conferences, and other TeX projects.

- As mentioned earlier, the Lucida fonts are available through TUG, in
    two sets.  The "complete set" is exactly the same 41
    Lucida fonts which Y&Y sold.  We also provide a "basic
    set" with 22 fonts -- all the math fonts and the
    essential text fonts.  Both individual and site licenses
    are available, with a substantial discount for TUG
    members.  Font samples, documentation, and more are
    available: http://tug.org/lucida

    Also, there is now an option to upgrade the license for
    the Lucida fonts for original Y&Y customers.  There is
    no fee, but you must be a TUG member.  Please see:

- The application deadline for TUG 2006 bursaries is fast approaching!
    Applications must be submitted by electronic mail no
    later than 2 June 2006. See

- Don't forget to check out the TUG Interview Corner at
    http://www.tug.org/interviews. New interviews are added
    on a regular basis.  Duane Bibby is the most recent

- Also, the 6th issue of The PracTeX Journal has just been
    published. There are articles on making presentations,
    editing graphics, LaTeX in scientific reports, learning
    and teaching LaTeX, and an assortment of regular columns
    and opinion.  

    Dave Walden will serve as guest editor for the next
    issue. He is seeking papers for the issue, especially
    about improving writing and publishing productivity via
    TeX and friends. Of course, any papers suitable for the
    PracTeX Journal audience are welcomed.  Email
    pracjourn at tug.org.
