T_{E}X and SuccessorsT_{E}XIn 1982 Donald E. Knuth has released T_{E}X. T_{E}X is a typesetting system which shows an excellent quality of the produced results.TeXXeTDonald E. Knuth and Pierre MacKay have written an extension of T_{E}X which is able to include lefttoright material as well as righttoleft material. Is is accomlished with the help of an extended DVI format which can be translated to plain DVI afterwards. This development has been superceeded by TeXXeT and εT_{E}X.TeXXeTPeter Breitenlohner has reimplemented TeXXeT system releasing it from the need to use an extended DVI format. The development has been integrated into εT_{E}X.εT_{E}XIn 1996 some extensions have been released which where built into the Web sources of T_{E}X mainly by Peter Breitenlohner. The main extensions where concerned with bidirectional typesetting and better debugging support.pdfT_{E}XIn 1997 Han The Thanh has created a derived system based on the original T_{E}X system. The main extensions are centered around improved typesetting and generating of PDF as direct output format. The development is continued by the PDF group.Ω (Omega)John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous have released another version of a typesetting system based on T_{E}X. The major focus has been laid on the extension of T_{E}X to use 16bit fonts and bidirectional typesetting. In addition to these extensions some limitations of T_{E}X have been raised and a powerful preprocessing has been added.NTSIn 1998 a Javabased successor for T_{E}X has been initiated. The programmer Karel Skoupy has released the sources of NTS in 2001. The further development seens to be frozen.
