As some people have already noticed, I made the TeX Live 2013 release
public yesterday.  I delayed this announcement to give it a start at
making its way around CTAN -- please do get the release from a CTAN
mirror.  More on getting TeX Live: http://tug.org/texlive/acquire.html.

For links to the list of changes in this release (and a lot more),
see the TeX Live home page:

One post-release round of rebuilds is already underway for the sake of
(primarily) late-breaking mpost and pdftex bug fixes.  The new binaries
will be available in due course through tlmgr or directly from svn as
usual.  It is not at all imperative to get them (or I would have delayed
the release); the idea was just to make them easily available if you run
into the bugs.  More about this at http://tug.org/texlive/bugs.html.

I do not plan to update the *.iso (or *.tar equivalents) file(s) for
2013; the DVD is being manufactured now and will be sent to user group
members in due course.  (It can also be ordered from

Updates from CTAN will start being available through tlmgr again after a
few more days.

Happy TeXing,
