# CTAN update: memoir

Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version number: 3.7o 2021-03-23 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
Changed (2021/03/23) o memoir v3.7o -- \footref will be added to the kernel, so we now "provide" it instead -- as of late 2020 the caption package will now adjust it self to the class. It will even map several of the caption styling macros the class provides onto the the corresponding setup in the caption package. Special thanks to Axel Sommerfeldt for this feature. Therefore we no longer reset in preparation for caption. -- The mparhack package is no longer marked as emulated as we did not emulate the fix for the bug regarding \if at firstcolumn. If a document specifies as twocolumn, we automatically load mparhack -- some internal cleanup and added some recommended alternatives
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Erik Braun

## memoir – Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books

The memoir class is for typesetting poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and mathematical works.

Permissible document ‘base’ font sizes range from 9 to 60pt. There is a range of page-styles and well over a dozen chapter-styles to choose from, as well as methods for specifying your own layouts and designs. The class also provides the functionality of over thirty of the more popular packages, thus simplifying document sources.

Users who wish to use the hyperref package, in a document written with the memoir class, should also use the memhfixc package (part of this bundle). Note, however, that any current version of hyperref actually loads the package automatically if it detects that it is running under memoir.
