TeX Live 2008 is now officially released; for the list of basic links,
see the home page, http://tug.org/texlive.  For download and DVD
information, see http://tug.org/texlive/acquire.html.

Perhaps the biggest news is that the underlying package infrastructure
has been completely rewritten, and dynamic package updates are now
possible.  We will be updating packages as they are released to CTAN (as
MiKTeX has been doing for many years).  For other news, there's a link
on the home page.

This seems a good place to mention that monetary donations to TeX
development will count double though August 2009 (up to US$10,000).  The
same generous donor as last year has provided matching funds (and an
outright grant).  Of course there are many non-financial ways to
contribute as well; see http://tug.org/texlive/contribute.html.

Happy TeXing,
