CTAN Up­date: eplain

Karl Berry sub­mit­ted an up­date to the eplain pack­age. Ver­sion: 3.9 Li­cense: gpl2 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Ex­tended plain TeX macros An­nounce­ment text:
Eplain ver­sion 3.9 is avail­able from CTAN via https://ctan.org/pkg/eplain and di­rectly from https://tug.org/eplain. It's also in­cluded in TeX dis­tri­bu­tions. This mi­nor re­lease fixes a btx­mac.tex bug in­tro­duced in 3.8 which caused \provide­com­mand to fail. Also, the doc­u­men­ta­tion now has a sec­tion on cre­at­ing PDF book­marks (a.k.a. out­lines), and url and other up­dates. Gen­eral: the Eplain macro pack­age ex­tends and ex­pands on the def­i­ni­tions in plain TeX. It's in­tended to pro­vide use­ful def­i­ni­tions re­gard­less of how a doc­u­ment might be for­mat­ted, such as cross-ref­er­enc­ing by la­bels. Eplain was orig­i­nally de­vel­oped for the book TeX for the Im­pa­tient, pub­lished by Ad­di­son-Wes­ley in 1990. That book is now freely avail­able, from https://ctan.org/pkg/im­pa­tient, along with sev­eral trans­la­tions. (It's also in TeX dis­tri­bu­tions.) Please send bug re­ports to tex-eplain at tug.org (mail­ing list web in­ter­face: https://lists.tug.org/tex-eplain). Happy ex­panded TeXing, Karl
