Fellow TeX-ers,

November here in Vermont USA can be a bit gray and starting to get
chilly.  Old-timers say, "No sun, no rain, no snow, November."  It is
a good month to stay indoors and work, under a blanket, if you can
with TeX and friends.

1) The year 2017 is an election year for TUG.  A number of seats on
the Board expire in 2017, including mine, the office of President: see
http://tug.org/election/.  For any inquiries, please contact the
election committee, whose address is on that page.  The submission
deadline is Feb 1.

2) Next year's TUG conference will be at the annual BachoTeX
conference.  It will be held April 29-May 3, 2017.  More information
will be appearing in this newsletter, and at http://tug.org/tug2017/.

We are excited to be joining the Polish TeX group GUST for their 25th
birthday.  A big thanks to them for agreeing to host!

If you are starting to think about your trip there, great!  You may be
interested in the page "Things you always wanted to know about
Bachotek" at http://tug.org/tug2017/bachotex.html.

3) The TUGboat 2016 proceedings issue, TUGboat 37:2, the TUG'16
proceedings, has been mailed to current TUG members. It is also
available from the TUG store at http://tug.org/store/#tugboat.

Next, edition 37:3 should go to the printer a few days, to be
delivered by the end of the year (postal systems permitting).

The TUGboat issue after that is 38:1. Its submission deadline is March 3,
2017.  Submissions are most welcome, particularly of survey or
introductory articles.

Also, TUGboat issue 36:2 of about a year ago is now
publicly available online at
http://tug.org/TUGboat/Contents/contents36-2.html . Printed copies of
this are also available through the TUG store.

4) Looking forward, the 11th ConTeXt meeting will take place at
Butzbach-Maibach, Germany, on September 11-17, 2017.  The theme will
be ConTeXt Gardening: http://meeting.contextgarden.net/2017/

As in previous years, this meeting will host ConTeXt and LuaTeX
developers and users and gives you the opportunity to present your
results, experiences and ideas on future development. The talks will
be followed up by tutorials on different ConTeXt and LuaTeX

5) The TUG web site has a new book review of Manuale Calligraphicum:
Examples of Calligraphy by Students of Hermann Zapf, edited by David
Pankow.  The review is by Boris Veytsman and continues his practice of
selecting very interesting books, and writing interesting reviews
of them.  See http://tug.org/books/reviews/tb118reviews-pankow.html.

Happy TeXing,
Jim Hefferon, for the TUG Board
