The package described below has been updated on CTAN. Thanks for the contribution, Jim Hefferon .................................................................. Name of contribution: Eplain 3.1 My name: Oleg Katsitadze My email: olegkat at gmail.com Summary description: Release 3.1 of Eplain License: Mostly public domain, some contributions GPL CTAN location: macros/eplain Announcement: Eplain is a set of TeX macros that expands on and extends the definitions in plain TeX in a "style-neutral" fashion. The areas addressed by the Eplain macros include: commutative or arrow-theoretic diagrams; verbatim listings; table of contents; indexing; bibliographies with BibTeX; cross-references; double-, triple-, quadruple-columns; hypertext links (pdfTeX, dvipdfm and HyperTeX are supported); and loading (a few) LaTeX packages under plain TeX. For more info please visit http://www.tug.org/eplain . News for this (3.1) release: General: * Rearranged the distro to comply with TDS. * Distro now includes PDF, HTML and INFO versions of the manual. * Removed etex.tex. LaTeX packages under Eplain: * When reloading LaTeX packages, warn and skip reloading, instead of giving an error. Suggested by Dan Luecking. * The primitive \input is now restored after loading LaTeX packages. * Added more "LaTeX" defs needed by: the `draft' option to graphic{s,x}.sty; warnings from epstopdf.sty when graphics.sty is not loaded. Hyperlinks: * Added the `hypertex' driver, and made it the default driver. * Made footnote hyperlinks off by default. * Added the \href macro. Suggested by Dorai Sitaram. * LABEL argument of the hyperlink macros now allow special characters like # and ~ (useful for URLs). Suggested by Dorai Sitaram. * Fixed a hyperlink-related bug in equation macros. * Fixed a bug in the `nolinks' driver. * Added \writenumberedtocline macro, which is \writenumberedtocentry with permuted parameters. Suggested by Dorai Sitaram. * Hyperlink macros now ignore leading spaces in option lists. * All hyperlink macros now report errors until links are enabled. Cross-references, TOC and indexing: * Added warnings about multiply defined xref labels. Suggested by Tomas Penicka. * Fixed \definexref to (once again) ignore following spaces. * Indexing macros now read TERM, SUBTERM and SEE... arguments verbatim, to allow special characters and catcode changes. Suggested by Dorai Sitaram. * Extended the TOC macros: when given an integer for the type of a TOC entry, they write \tocentry{NUM}... to the .toc file. Suggested by Dorai Sitaram. Programming defs: * Added \ifinteger and \isinteger macros. * Added \For loop which strips off leading spaces from items. Manual: * Added demo subdir with demo files, and added new chapter `Demo files' to the manual. * Documented \ifempty, the extended \loop macro, and the new macros. * Many small improvements and additions to the manual. Other: * Added new \nolastlinelisting listing hook which omits the last (empty) line of the file. _______________________________________________ Ctan mailing list Ctan at dante.de https://lists.dante.de/mailman/listinfo/ctan
