- TeX and TUG
News: TTN was published from 1991–1995. It was intended to
provide introductory material and news, in contrast to more advanced
material in TUGboat. It was folded back into TUGboat in 1995, which now
welcomes material at all levels, especially introductory.
- TeXniques: This was a series of occasional
publications (now discontinued), each devoted to a particular topic or
the proceedings of a TUG annual meeting.
A pan-European conference has been held
every year or two since 1985. The first four conferences were organized
by enthusiastic individuals; since then, the conference has been
sponsored by one of the formal TeX groups. The name EuroTeX has been
used officially since 1990.
TeXline was produced single-handedly by Malcolm Clark prior to the
emergence of UKTUG and Baskerville. Sources for issues 5-14 are
available from CTAN, in digests/texline.

Cahiers is the journal of the French-speaking group, GUTenberg.
Originally published in two columns on A4 paper, with issue 9 (1991) a

24.5cm. Since that time, many issues have been topical, compiled by a
guest editor; several issues contain the proceedings of conferences,
including two EuroTeX issues.
