Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version number: 3.7i 2019-11-15 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
>From the README: o memoir v3.7i -- indexes now uses protection when being moved from the aux to the idx file(s) -- changed loading ifpdf, ifetex, ifxetex and ifluatex to just loading the new iftex package. Suggested by The LaTeX Support Team. -- new feature for \createmark: the <show> variable now accepts: nonumber, shownumber and notitle (implies shownumber). The latter enables chapter headers to be just of the form "Chapter <number>" -- By request, added a7paper and b7paper options (plus \stockavii, \stockbvii, \pageavii and \pagebvii) -- changed the header construction for tableofcontents and friends. The anchor that hyperref will use for TOC, LOF etc entries in the TOC will now point above the header not below it. -- changed a few things in \subbottom, which hopefully fixes an issue with hypcap, https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/440399/3929 (and https://github.com/ho-tex/oberdiek/issues/42) -- the handling of \absindent, \absparsep is now correctly described in the manual (any changes of these of use of them has to be delayed to the start of the document via \AtBeginDocument) -- Updated the patched \InputIfFileExists to match the one used in the 2019/10/01 format (if using that format, we use the old version) -- Updated the embedded copy of the booktabs package, bringing it in ling with booktabs v1.6180339. -- Changed the warning emitted at the start of loading the caption package. Apparently users got spooked by it. The caption package works just fine with with memoir, the warning is just there to remind users that once the caption package is loaded, all caption related configurations should go through the caption package interface, not through the class interface. -- Fixed a bug in \lofmark and \lotmark when using the oneside option. The default headings style uses \markright for all marks under oneside, but due to an ordering mistake, \lofmark and \lotmark would still be using \markboth unless you explicitly issued \pagestyle{headings} in the preamble. This is now fixed. -- fixed bug in \newfootnoteseries, the included footnote type did not support more than one paragraph. Is now long. -- fixed bug in \pagenote[...]{...}. Under hyperref \pagenote{.}\pagenote[.]{.}{\pagenote{.} did not add a separator as expected. It does now. o memhfixc v1.18 -- added a \par to \contcaption to get rid of a sporadic space coming from \refstepcounter under hyperref -- additionally added a patch when hypcap is loaded, now using \contcaption is no longer an error (hypcap looks to see if \caption has been used)

## 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.
