Date: December 7, 2021 9:35:18 PM CET
Timo Baumann submitted an update to the BibArts package. Version number: 2.3 License type: gpl Summary description: “Arts”-style bibliographical information Announcement text:
Changes from BibArts version 2.2 (2019) to version 2.3 (now, 2021): bibsort 2.3, the sorting program of the package, has two new options: -utf8 sorts UTF8 characters as definded in utf8enc.dfu 2021/01/27 v1.2l, except \cyr...- and \CYR...-commands, which bibsort still ignores. bibsort 2.3 is able to sort the accent \textcommabelow (parallel to U+0218 to U+021B). The internal representation of accents did change (two instead of one ASCII 1 to 31). For numerous smaller changes see /* 2.3 comments */ in bibsort.c. Like in earlier versions, you can introduce e.g. a book in your text \xvli{John}{Smith} *{\vauthor{Peter}{Young}} {... [Title] ...} with Peter Young as co-author. (For further co-authors, use \midvauthor{FirstName}{LastName} in front of \vauthor.) Please always TYPE the FirstName first. If you start bibsort without -e, \printvli will still print lists as: Smith, John / Peter Young: ... [Title] ... -e exchanges the PRINT ORDER of the args of \vauthor (and \midvauthor). In your text, \printvli then will PRINT the List of Literature as: Smith, John / Young, Peter: ... [Title] ... The SORT ORDER in *both* cases is (that did/does *not* change): Smith John Young Peter

BibArts – “Arts”-style bibliographical information

BibArts is a package to assist in making bibliographical features common in the arts and the humanities (history, political science, philosophy, etc.).

bibarts.sty provides commands for quotations, abbreviations, and especially for a formatted citation of literature, journals (periodicals), edited sources, and archive sources. In difference to earlier versions, BibArts 2.x helps to use slanted fonts (italics) and is able to set ibidem automatically in footnotes. It will also copy all citation information, abbreviations, and register key words into lists for an automatically generated appendix. These lists may refer to page and footnote numbers. BibArts has nothing to do with . The lists are created by bibsort (see below).

BibArts requires the program bibsort, for which the sources and a Windows executable are provided. This program creates the bibliography without using MakeIndex or . Its source is not written with any specific operating system in mind. A summary of contents is in English; the full documentation is in German.
