pdfTeX ====== README for version 3.1415926-1.40.11 ==================================== This directory contains the version 1.40.11 of pdfTeX, an extended version of eTeX that can create PDF directly from TeX source files and enhance the result of TeX typesetting with the help of PDF. When PDF output is not selected, pdfTeX produces normal DVI output, otherwise it produces PDF output that looks identical to the DVI output. An important aspect of this project is to investigate alternative justification algorithms, optionally making use of multiple master fonts. pdfTeX is based on the original eTeX sources and Web2c, and has been successfully compiled on Unix, Win32 and DOS systems. It is no longer under active development and only bug fixes are to be expected; it produces reasonable PDF code. See the file NEWS for changes to the program. Documentation about pdfTeX can be found at http://www.pdftex.org There is also a mailing list on pdfTeX; go to http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/pdftex for more information about it. Its searchable archive can be found at http://tug.org/pipermail/pdftex/ Please read http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html before asking any questions on the pdfTeX mailing list.
