This has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. Thanks, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ......................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: svn-multi Author's name: Martin Scharrer Location on CTAN: / Summary description: Update to Version 2.0 License type: lppl Announcement text:
The svn-multi package got updated and now includes a good amount of new fancy features: Keyword/File groups: Several files (actually their keywords) can be grouped together and the latest revision information of each group can be typeset anywhere in the document. Support for External Files: External files can be declared inside the document and their keywords can be included using the provided Perl script "svn-multi.pl". This files count as part of the current file and group. Table of Revisions: A table of revisions can be produced and included which holds the revision information of the complete document, the declared groups and all files. Automatic Declaration of Images as External Files: To not have the trouble of declaring all included images manually as external files an feature is provided to handle them automatically. Currently the 'graphics' (includes 'graphicx') and the 'pgf' package is supported. Automatic Declaration of all Files as Subgroups: All input files can be automatically declared as subgroups (in addition to normal groups) to allow the access of their revision information anywhere in the document. New Style of the Package Manual: The package manual style got redesigned and hyperlinks between the macro description and implementation were added. Additional information for the implementation were provided. All this features can be enabled using package options (some depend on each other) to minimize memory usage. This package can also be downloaded from its new project website: http://latex.scharrer-online.de/ Feel free to report bugs and request new features using the ticket system at http://latex.scharrer-online.de/newticket . I would be very happy to read some comments about the new features.

svn-multi – Subversion keywords in multi-file documents

This package lets you typeset keywords of the version control system Subversion inside your files anywhere you like. Unlike the otherwise similar package svn the use of multiple files for one document is well supported.

The package uses the author's filehook and currfile packages.

The package interacts with an external Perl script, to retrieve information necessary for the required output.
