e-TeX – An extended version of TeX, from the NTS project
An extended version of TeX (which is capable of running as if it
were TeX unmodified). E-TeX has been specified by the LaTeX team
as the engine for the development of LaTeX 2e, in the immediate
future; as a result, LaTeX programmers may (in all current TeX
distributions) assume e-TeX functionality.
Development versions of e-TeX are to be found in the TeX live source repository.
