This doc­u­ment gives an overview about the de­vel­op­ments that fol­lowed TeX: its chil­dren (new en­gines that pro­vide more fea­tures) and its friends (for­mats based on TeX or newer en­gines, pro­grams that help you when work­ing with TeX etc.)

Com­pile the tex-overview.tex with LuaLaTeX to get the pdf-file. You may need an up-to-date TeXlive dis­tri­bu­tion to do so. The pdf con­tains tooltips, so make sure your pdf viewer can dis­play them – or you will miss most of the in­for­ma­tion.
