> Hi everyone,
> The Lucida fonts are now available through TUG; visit
> http://tug.org/lucida if you're interested.
> In short, the "complete set" offered by TUG is exactly the same 41
> Lucida fonts which Y&Y sold.  (The pfb's are completely unchanged.)
> There is also a "basic set" with 22 fonts -- all the math fonts and  
> the
> essential text fonts.  Both individual and site licenses are  
> available.
> There is a substantial discount for TUG members.
> Due to legal and overhead considerations, we aren't currently planning
> to offer the fonts one at a time, or in any other bundles.  Hopefully
> the price is low enough that this will not be a significant problem.
> The Lucida TeX support metrics and lucidabr (psnfssx) macros have been
> (slightly) updated.  They have been uploaded to CTAN and should appear
> there in due course.  Of course all the support files are included in
> the downloads from tug; they're on CTAN primarily for the benefit

> users who already have the fonts.
> We have also established a mailing list lucida at tug.org for user
> questions, suggestions, bug reports, etc.  Please feel free to post

> A separate address, lucida-admin at tug.org, should be used for

> Font samples, documentation, and more are available on the web site.
> Although we still expect to offer a license upgrade for Y&Y users,

> Major thanks to Chuck Bigelow and Kris Holmes for generously allowing
> TUG to offer this to the TeX community - and especially for designing
