\section{\BV\ new start}
At the 1993 \ukt\ Annual General Meeting (of which the formal report
appears later in this issue) it was agreed that \BV\ should enter a
new phase of its career, appearing six times a year to a fixed
schedule. This last issue of 1993 is the first to appear under the new
scheme, and I hope that members will start to `notice' \BV\ a little
more and start contributing articles. {\em Please note the following
schedule of copy deadlines}:

\BV\ regularly publishes articles answering common \TeX\ questions,
and these are available as technical notes to \ukt\ members. A first
list will appear in the next issue. Members are urged to contribute
their own short (one side of A4 may be all that is needed) `topical
tips' which we can add to the library to answer queries from those who
do not participate in academic electronic network discussions.
Another innovation in this issue is the first of a regular column by
Malcolm Clark --- {\em Malcolm's Gleanings}. Malcolm has an unrivalled
knowledge of happenings and publications in the world of computers and
typesetting and will share his discoveries with us.
Each issue of \BV\ will have a special theme,
although articles on any
\TeX-related subject are always welcome. Contributions on the themes for
the first half of 1994 are eagerly solicited:
\begin{Pilist}{pzd}{43}
\item \BV\ 4.1 will be a special issue on PostScript (to coincide with
the \ukt\ meeting on using PostScript fonts);
\item \BV\ 4.2 will be a special issue on \LaTeX2e (which should be
widely available by then);
\item \BV\ 4.3 will be a `back to basics' special issue on mathematical
and tabular typesetting.
\end{Pilist}
This issue of \BV\ is devoted mainly to the issues of interfaces and
shells for \TeX.
Finally, given the season, and Donald Arseneau's intriguing
shape-making macros published in \BV\ 3.1, how can I resist trying
another shape he recently created?

This issue of the journal was created entirely with \LaTeX\ and
printed on a Hewlett Packard LaserJet IV. It was set in ITC New
Baskerville Roman, with Computer Modern Typewriter for literal text.
Production and distribution was undertaken in Cambridge by Robin
Fairbairns and Jonathan Fine.
