Finally, for those who have not already heard, we sadly report that
Peter Breitenlohner passed away last month.  He was one of the most
prominent and deeply knowledgeable TeX experts, and a wonderful person.
He will be missed.  An obituary, focusing on his physics accomplishments,
is at www.mpp.mpg.de/mpg/websitePhysik/pdf/nachrufe/Peter_Breitenlohner_EN.pdf.

Best wishes to all,
Karl Berry (on behalf of the TUG Board)
