README for version 3.14159-1.30.4 of $Date: 2005/08/23 $

This directory contains the version 1.30.4 of pdfTeX, an extended version of
TeX that can create PDF directly from TeX source files and enhance the
result of TeX typesetting with the help of PDF. When PDF output is not
selected, pdfTeX produces normal DVI output, otherwise it produces PDF
output that looks identical to the DVI output. An important aspect of this
project is to investigate alternative justification algorithms, optionally
making use of multiple master fonts. 

pdfeTeX is an even more extended version of TeX than pdfTeX because it is
not based on TeX but on eTeX, an extended version of TeX. 

pdfTeX is based on the original TeX sources and Web2c, and has been
successfully compiled on Unix, Win32 and DOS systems. It is still under
development and features may change; it produces reasonable PDF code.

See the file NEWS for changes to the program.
