An up­date to the pack­age FiXme has been in­stalled at tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your fa­vorite mir­ror in the next day or two. Thanks, Jim Hef­feron ftp­maint at tug.ctan.org =================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: FiXme Author's name: Di­dier Verna Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: la­tex/con­trib/sup­ported/fixme Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: FiXme, in­sert fixme notes in your doc­u­ments Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text given by the con­tri­bu­tion's au­thor: - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm happy to an­nounce a new *ma­jor* re­lease of FiXme, a pack­age for in­sert­ing fixme notes in your doc­u­ments, ver­sion 2.0. Many new fea­tures in this re­lease, in­clud­ing a new lay­out op­tion (in­line), notes coun­ters, a us­age sum­mary at the end of pro­cess­ing, more trans­la­tions, and most im­por­tant, three ad­di­tional macros for in­clud­ing non-crit­i­cal notes (meta com­ments about the doc­u­ment ac­tu­aly) of dif­fer­ent im­por­tance lev­els. FiXme pro­vides you with a way of in­sert­ing fixme notes in your doc­u­ments. Such notes can ap­pear in­line, as marginal notes, foot­notes, in­dex en­tries, in the log file and as warn­ings on std­out. It is also pos­si­ble to sum­ma­rize them in a list. When you switch from draft to fi­nal mode, any re­main­ing fixme note will be logged, but re­moved from the doc­u­ment's body. Ad­di­tion­ally, crit­i­cal notes will abort com­pi­la­tion with an in­for­ma­tive mes­sage. FiXme also comes with sup­port for AUC-TeX. - ----------------------------------------------------------------------

FiXme – Col­lab­o­ra­tive an­no­ta­tion tool for

FiXme is a col­lab­o­ra­tive an­no­ta­tion tool for doc­u­ments. An­no­tat­ing a doc­u­ment here refers to in­sert­ing meta-notes, that is, notes that do not be­long to the doc­u­ment it­self, but rather to its de­vel­op­ment or re­view­ing pro­cess. Such notes may in­volve things of dif­fer­ent im­por­tance lev­els, rang­ing from sim­ple “fix the spelling” flags to crit­i­cal “this para­graph is a lie” men­tions. An­no­ta­tions like this should be vis­i­ble dur­ing the de­vel­op­ment or re­view­ing phase, but should nor­mally dis­ap­pear in the fi­nal ver­sion of the doc­u­ment.

FiXme is de­signed to ease and au­to­mate the pro­cess of man­ag­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive an­no­ta­tions, by of­fer­ing a set of pre­de­fined note lev­els and lay­outs, the pos­si­bil­ity to reg­is­ter mul­ti­ple au­thors, to ref­er­ence an­no­ta­tions by list­ing and in­dex­ing etc. FiXme is ex­ten­si­ble, giv­ing you the pos­si­bil­ity to cre­ate new lay­outs or even com­plete “themes“, and also comes with sup­port for AUC.
