CTAN submission – preview-latex 0.6

Date: February 19, 2002 12:30:31 PM CET
----- Forwarded message from David Kastrup ----- I have uploaded preview-latex-0.6.tar.gz and preview-0.6.tar.gz to the incoming directory of ftp.dante.de. Its license is the GPL. I would recommend installing it in the following way: Put the packed archive preview-latex-0.6.tar.gz under support/preview-latex/ and unpack the README from it to support/preview-latex/README Create a symbolic link from support/preview-latex/preview-latex.tar.gz to preview-latex-0.6.tar.gz so that people can always get the newest version under this name. Unpack preview-0.6.tar.gz in the directory macros/latex/contrib/supported/preview/ It contains just README-preview, preview.dtx and preview.ins. The reason is that the preview.dtx file can also be used as a standalone LaTeX style for extracting selected elements from a LaTeX source into separate pages of a DVI file. Previous versions of preview-latex can be deleted. Here are the release notes: Release notes for version 0.6 of the preview-latex package: preview-latex is a system for displaying inline images of selected parts of a file in Emacs source buffers. It is released under the GNU Public License (GPL). At the current point of time, GNU Emacs-21.1, AUC TeX, a working LaTeX installation and GhostScript are required. XEmacs support is not yet operative, and contributions would be welcome. Due to missing image support of Emacs-21.1 under Microsoft Windows, this platform is not usable at the current point of time, either. Release focus is user interface improvements and documentation. Main point has been an attempt to refrain from disabling previews unless the text under it has indeed changed and not just been replaced by something identical or decorated with font-lock. This makes preview-latex behave better when filling paragraphs, for example. Menu entries for clearing out previews again have been added, and temporary directories are removed when leaving Emacs. A TeXinfo manual has been started. Provision has been made for configuration files prdefault.cfg and prauctex.cfg for commonly defined operations. The latter file is provided and installed. User feedback about errors and suggested feature improvements is welcome and heeded. The home page is <URL:http://preview-latex.sourceforge.net>, the SourceForge project page that among others offers anonymous CVS access is located at <URL:http://sourceforge.net/projects/preview-latex>. For users of RedHat linux, a RPM is provided at the above site primarily for RH 7.x. The RPM requires a few packages: * GhostScript 6.51 is included in RH 7.2, but if you use an earlier release it can be downloaded from the RH7.2 updates, <URL:ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/7.2/en/os/i386/> * AUC TeX can be found at several places, but if you want the latest 11.11 (alpha, but stable AFAIK) with no known issues concerning preview-latex, an RPM can be found at the project homepage. * Finally, Emacs-21.1 can be downloaded from rawhide, <URL:ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/>. I installed this using 'rpm -i --nodeps --force', which worked for me, but since it does not follow the usual emacs + emacs-X11 + emacs-nox, YMMV. ----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for the upload. I installed the new version in CTAN:/tex-archive/support/preview-latex/ and CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/preview/ as suggested. Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

preview – Extract bits of a source for output

The package is a free-standing part of the preview-latex bundle. The package provides the support preview-latex needs, when it chooses the matter it will preview. The output may reasonably be expected to have other uses, as in html translators, etc.
