LaTeXe and a new TeX have arrived

As announced in CNL 213 (September 1993), and CNL 215 (January 1994) a new and standard release of LaTeX, known under the name LaTeXe, is now publicly available. It replaces the previous version LaTeX 2.09. There are many additions and improvements (see the article in section ). Existing files, marked up for LaTeX 2.09 can still be run without modifications through LaTeXe in so-called compatibility mode. However, if you want to use the new features of LaTeXe, you will have to make a few changes to be compatible with the new syntax.

At the same time as installing LaTeXe on the Unix systems, we have also upgraded to more recent versions of other TeX-related software, as explained below.
