Dear PODC community,

the new Bulletin of the EATCS is now available online at:
http://eatcs.org/images/bulletin/beatcs130.pdf

The distributed computing column is contributed by Michael Elkin and Ofer Neiman who observe and explore an intriguing connection between near-additive spanners and near-exact hopsets. The authors survey common results and proof techniques, and point out open questions.

I would like to thank Michael and Ofer very much for their contribution.

Enjoy and take care!
Stefan
