----- Forwarded message from Barbara Beeton -----
A new version of AMS-TeX has been posted to the AMS server at
This will be mirrored to CTAN into the ../macros/amstex area in
due course.

This is AMS-TeX version 2.2.  It is mostly a bug fix release, but
a few important changes have been made:

 - The copyright notice is no longer reported at run time, and
   there is no longer an explicit request for use of AMS-TeX to be
   acknowledged.  (A footnote "Typeset by AMS-TeX" that appears at
   the bottom of the first page of an article can be removed by
   the command \nologo.)

 - An explicit \subclassyear has been added to facilitate reference
   to versions of the Mathematics Subject Classification other than
   the default (1991).

 - The definition of \folio was simplified to include only the page
   number, permitting auxiliary packages such as index.tex (from
   texsis) to be used without conflict.

 - Empty elements (addresses, thanks, subjclass, caption) are checked
   and extraneous footnotes, punctuation, etc., are suppressed as

Users of AMS-TeX are advised to consider obtaining this new release.
