Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version: 3.8 2023-08-08 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
From the README: WORD OF ADVICE: It is not recommended to manually update memoir into an old LaTeX installation. Not all changes are compatible with older un-updated LaTeX systems and we often make no attempt to be backwards compatible. Instead we assume that users use updated memoir with an updated LaTeX installation. Changes (2023/08/08) o memoir v3.8 -- now requires a LaTeX format from 2021/06/01 or newer. The class will halt compilation (in all interaction modes) if the format is too old. -- \titleref is now an alias for \nameref (autoloaded). The class have been adjusted to provide info for sectionals and normal captions. The titleref package will remain marked as being emulated as it shouldn't be used with the class (and haven't been updated in 20+ years). -- nameref paches in the class are no longer needed -- label handling for subcaptions and friends have been reimplemented. -- no longer re-defines \label as per request of the LaTeX Team. -- booktabs is now loaded as a required package instead of being embedded -- Fixed typo in the caption of figure 2.13. Thanks to Vladimir G. Ivanović for the report. -- removed etex loading (was only loaded for kernels from before 2015). The noetex class option removed as well. -- reimplemented \pagenumbering(*) as a single macro -- additions to \@xfloat is now done via a cmd/after hook if the format version supports it. -- Definition of \theHpoem changed to \providecommand -- The \theH<counter> macros defined in memoir was modified to use \the\value{counter} instead of just \arabic{counter} as some packages change \arabic. -- \toclevel at part was actually never fixed in v3.7.19, now it is -- added \@currentcounter in various places that manually set \@currentlabel (primarily footnote constructions). Reported by Gustavo Barros. -- replaced hardcoded \footnotesize in \verbfootnote by \foottextfont -- made a small change to footnote formatting. Now one can use \raggedright in \footnotetext to get raggedright footnotes. Use with care as \raggedright does change various paragraph settings -- replaced etoolbox loading by xpatch (which loads etoolbox) as it can patch more. -- Added a Hook named memoir/subcaption/aftercounter which is executed after \refstepcounter in \subcaption, \subbottom, \subtop etc. Requested by Gustavo Barros. -- Redefinition of \@setsize removed, was copied from setspace.sty which states that it was only needed for some 209 packages. The following macros have been disabled (to either give a warning or an error). -- \namerefon and \namerefoff => warning (now always on) -- \currenttitle => error (given that many things are now "titled", relying on this to get the current "title" is too risky, use proper \label+\titleref instead) -- \theTitleReference => warning (was used in the old implementation of \titleref and \currenttitle) o memhfixc v1.21 -- All nameref patches have been removed -- provided \subfigureautorefname

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.
