John Collins sub­mit­ted an up­date to the la­texmk pack­age. Ver­sion: 4.52 2017-01-17 Li­cense: gpl2 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Fully au­to­mated LaTeX doc­u­ment gen­er­a­tion An­nounce­ment text:
Changes for ver­sion 4.52: 1. Op­ti­mize num­ber of calls to kpse­which. This oc­ca­sion­ally gives large sav­ings in run time. 2. Fix bug that if an .aux file is deleted and then la­texmk is run, the wrong num­ber of runs of (pdf)la­tex was made. 3. Im­ple­ment di­rect sup­port for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX. 4. For XeLaTeX, gen­er­ate pdf file via xdv file and xd­vipdfmx; this of­ten gives much bet­ter run time for doc­u­ments con­tain­ing large graph­ics files. 4. Cor­rect de­tec­tion for miss­ing graph­ics files with XeLaTeX. 5. Work around LuaTeX line-wrap­ping bug in .log file. 6. Up­date doc­u­men­ta­tion. 7. Im­prove­ments in code and di­ag­nos­tics. Changes for ver­sion 4.52b: Fix bug in­tro­duced in 4.52 that use of bib­tex wasn't al­ways de­tected when recorder mode is on.

la­texmk – Fully au­to­mated doc­u­ment gen­er­a­tion

La­texmk com­pletely au­to­mates the pro­cess of gen­er­at­ing a doc­u­ment. Given the source files for a doc­u­ment, la­texmk is­sues the ap­pro­pri­ate se­quence of com­mands to gen­er­ate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hard­copy ver­sion of the doc­u­ment.

An im­por­tant fea­ture is the “pre­view con­tin­u­ous mode”, where the script watches all of the source files (pri­mary file and in­cluded and graph­ics files), and re­runs , etc., when­ever a source file has changed. Thus a pre­viewer can of­fer a dis­play of the doc­u­ment’s lat­est state.
