 l3build: A testing and building system for (La)TeX
 ==================================================

 The LaTeX3 Project are pleased to release to CTAN a first public
 version of the testing/building system used to create kernel
 releases of LaTeX3 code: `l3build`. This new build system has
 been written to support not only the work of the team itself but
 also to enable other (La)TeX developers to take advantage of the
 functionality offered.

 The build system is written in Lua, and is thus usable with any
 recent TeX system (all of which include LuaTeX and thus the
 `texlua` scripting executable). The code has been designed to
 run on both Unix systems (Linux, Mac OS X, _etc._) and on
 Windows, and offers the following features:

CTAN Update: l3kernel + l3packages + l3experimental

The LaTeX3 Project submitted an update to the

      l3kernel + l3packages + l3experimental

packages.

Version number: SVN 5015
License type: lppl

Summary description: Higher-level LaTeX3 concepts

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Snapshot of SVN 5105
 ====================

 Changes in this release focus primarily on minimising
 dependency of expl3 on other packages and on having consistent
 behaviour across the supported engines (pdfTeX, XeTeX, LuaTeX).
 The team have developed a new build system to support this:
 while this does not 'show up' directly, it has resulted in a
 number of code improvements. The build system itself will be
 made generally available as a stand-alone product in the near
 future: full details will be given at that point.

 Changes:

  - Use expl3 native graphic drivers as standard rather than
    those from LaTeX2e

uk tex faq: update

i've released version 3.28 of the uk tex faq.

users may view its sources, printable versions, etc.,  at
  http://mirror.ctan.org:help/uk-tex-faq -- or they may access it (sort of) ineractively via
  http://www.tex.ac.uk/faq

i retire soon: when i do, i shall probably not have access to the server
that has served this faq since 1995 (or so).  so this is probably the last
ever release of this faq in its present form.
