Simon Jensen submitted an update to the derivative package. Version number: 1.3 2023-07-26 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Nice and easy derivatives Announcement text:
ADDED - New argument, !, for derivatives to enable shorthand notation. - Enhanced the algorithm that automatically calculates the mixed order to support fractional calculus. - Added new options style-inf-den. and style-inf-num to set the infinitesimals in the denominator and numerator. - New options style-var-/, style-var-! and style-var-/! to set the style of the derivatives. - New options scale-var-! and delims-var-! for variable delimiters in shorthand mode. - New options scale-eval-! and delims-eval-! for evaluation delimiters in shorthand mode. - More documentation examples. FIXED - Documentation errors.

derivative – Nice and easy derivatives

Typesetting derivatives and differentials in a consistent way are clumsy and require care to ensure the preferred formatting. Several packages have been developed for this purpose, each with its own features and drawbacks, with the most ambitious one being diffcoeff. While this package is comparable to diffcoeff in terms of features, it takes a different approach. One difference is this package provides more options to tweak the format of the derivatives and differentials. However, the automatic calculation of the total order isn't as developed as the one in diffcoeff.

This package makes it easy to write derivatives and differentials consistently with its predefined commands. It also provides a set of commands that can define custom derivatives and differential operators. The options follow a consistent naming scheme making them easy to use and understand.
