TeX Live 5 is almost ready! It has a runnable system for major Unix
variants (SGI, Sun, IBM, Compaq, HP), Linux, FreeBSD, and Windows 32
(Windows NT, 95, 98, 2000) systems. It also has an archive of emTeX
(for Windows 3.1 or OS/2 users), but no Macintosh version (due to
licensing restrictions). Gnu Ghostscript 5.50 and Gnu Emacs are
included, along with many other useful utilities.
