CTAN update: svn-multi

Date: March 28, 2009 7:38:42 AM CET
This package has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should be at your local mirror within a day. Thanks again, 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: /macros/latex/contrib/svn-multi/ Summary description: Update to version 2.1 - Automatic extraction of keyword values from Subversion working directory License type: lppl Announcement text:
This version adds the possibility to extract the needed version control keyword values of LaTeX or external files directly from the Subversion working directory. This feature avoids the need for an external script to generate the keyword definitions for external files (a feature introduced by v2.0) and can also be used to make id macro completely redundant. This feature must be explicitly enabled using the 'autokw' (Auto-Keywords) option. It only works with valid Subversion working directories from Subversion v1.4 or newer but not with exported or downloaded files. Technical Informations: A TeX parser for the '.svn/entries' file which is located in every Subversion working copy/directory is added. The working copy format versions 8, i.e. Subversion v1.4, or higher should be supported. The implementation was tested with Subversion 1.5.1 under Ubuntu 8.10. Users which encounter parsing errors or wrong results should not hesitate to send bugreports with information about the used Subversion version and platform to the author. Bugfixes: The version 2.0 released earlier this week erroneously changed the document date (e.g. \today) to the package release date. This has been fixed in this version.

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.
