i've just installed v3.7 of the faq, on the web (
and on ctan in directory help/uk-tug-faq.

apart from the steady accretion of answers, there have been big
changes in:

- "quality of pdf from postscript", which has been split into several
  bite-sized chunks, following a complaint from a user that it was too

- "installing files", which has gained the first few of a series about
  installing fonts.  these have proved extremely difficult to write: 
  striking a balance between accessibility and completeness, while
  retaining the crucial compactness needed of a faq answer, has taxed
  my feeble writing skills something rotten
  ( is the
  first of the series; follow "next question" to review the set)

in addition, the ctan distribution also includes an archive of the
static html version of the faq that i've been offering to distribution
builders for some time: see FAQ-html.tar.gz
