As we have so many (and fast) changes, I'd like to sort out the
most important from the last days to be recorded somewhere.

	Master/bin/i386-linux/ clean built with aleph; 
	other notes: 
	- eomega has gone (needs removing texmf-dist/eomega/ ?)
	- inialeph and viraleph not needed as other ini* and vir* were removed
	- missing .ini files for aleph and any sort of documentation
	- some links still left ->pdftex but pdftex->pdfetex ;-)

	update fmtutil / texconfig from teTeX. fmtutil now supports aleph.
	rebuild dependencies plus minor cleanup; aleph now builds cleanly
	Add config stuff to let afm2pl build on UNIX.
	Added .afmt as a format file extension.
	Added afm2pl
	Fixed irun.c to use texmfscripts format
	New tpm tools
	Moved fontinst and pdftex docs to texmf-doc
	Fixed the location of ConTeXt scripts
	Fixed ConTeXt scripts to use texmfscripts format
	Changed location of tetex/ and texlive/ scripts
	  to make use of texmfscripts format
	  (texmf*/scripts/ directory introduced for Perl and other scripts)
	Introduction of Aleph

	upgrade xdvik to version 22.81.1
	patch by Akira Kakuto (and approved by Olaf): allow to set
          file_line_error_style in texmf.cnf file
	pdfTeX: 3.141592-1.20a-rc1
        texmf/tex/generic/pdftexconfig.tex replaced pdftex.cfg

I think that we no more need:

In texmf-dist/tex/plain/config/pdftex.ini 
\input plain should replace \input bplain

mv texmf-dist/tex/mltex/base/mltex.ini texmf-dist/tex/plain/config/
(we have already here etex.ini, omega.ini, pdftex.ini)

Those .ini files haven't yet been put to p4. Hovewer I have one question:
for what reason many of them use:
\input pdftexconfig\pdfoutput=0

pdftexconfig.tex has nothing to do when \pdfoutput=0 so reading
one more file seems redundant.

All the best,
