Remembering the excitment that followed the first announcement of the  
existence of XeTeX on 9 April 2004 in a message of Bruce d'Arcus to  
the MacTeX list:

> Wow!  Check this out:
> http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=xetex
> Written by Jonathan Kew and designed to work with a TeTeX install,  
> it seems to be TeX-GX reborn!
> Bruce

it is extremely gratifying to see how XeTeX has catched up,  
especially since its incorporation in TeXLive:

- Creation of specific packages in CTAN at macros/xetex/latex/  
(arabxetex, bidi, xgreek, ...).

- Experimental adaptation of pstricks.

- Experimental driver for pdfpages.

Long live XeTeX!
