Dear TeX users,

It's well into fall here in NJ, and the nights are getting cold! What 
better way to warm up than to write a newsletter in the warm glow
of a laptop? 

TUG 2013 is now underway at the University of Tokyo. I opened the
conference via Skype, and my Japanese pronunciation seemed to at least
be acceptable. I regret not being able to attend, but the next TUGboat
issue (vol.34, no.3), will carry the full range of papers from the
conference, so I will at least be able to read what I missed.
Meanwhile, TUGboat 34:2 was mailed in August; and TUGboat 33:2,
the 2012 proceedings, is now publicly available in its entirety

We are still discussing possible venues for the 2014 conference,
so stay tuned here for announcements when we know more.

Other news:

* Nicola L C Talbot has created a discount code for TUG members 
  that will give them a 25% discount off LaTeX books available from
  http://www.dickimaw-books.com/shop. The order code is available
  in the TUG members area on the TUG website.  All the available
  discounts are listed on http://tug.org/books, along with lots of other
  book-related information.

More next month, including a wrap-up of the conference in Tokyo, 
and more on the 2014 site. Until then,
Happy TeXing!

Steve Peter
TUG President
(on behalf of the TUG Board)
