CTAN update – preview-latex-0.6.1.tar.gz

Date: March 12, 2002 1:25:13 PM CET
----- Forwarded message from David Kastrup ----- I have uploaded preview-latex-0.6.1.tar.gz and preview-0.6.1.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-0.6.1.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-0.6.1.tar.gz so that people can always get the newest version under this name. Unpack preview-0.6.1.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 0.6.1 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 again being worked on. If you are planning on contributing, please contact the developers' list. Due to missing image support of Emacs-21.1 under Microsoft Windows, this platform is not usable at the current point of time. Release focus have been user interface improvements and documentation. The TeXinfo documentation now also contains instructions for the used LaTeX style, and users of Emacs' desktop package will have previews survive into their next Emacs session. The LaTeX style now has an option for making TeX bounding boxes known to Dvips in case it gets them wrong (frequent with packages like PStricks). Due to a defective backport of security handling, GNU GhostScript-6.53 failed to work with version 0.6. We now don't use the incomplete functionality. 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>. If you can spare the time, you can also comment on or rate this project at <URL:http://freshmeat.net/projects/preview-latex>. Additional files can be found at <URL:http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/preview-latex>: * If you don't have texinfo 4.0 or later installed, prebuilt documentation files can be found there. * 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, you can find it there as well. * RPMs for preview-latex and AUC TeX are provided for users of RedHat Linux. The RPMs require 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/> * 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 as suggested in CTAN:/tex-archive/support/preview-latex and CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/preview 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.
