Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version number: 3.7g 2018-04-04 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
>From the README Changed (2018/04/04) o memoir v3.7g -- is now using colorlinks hyperref option in the manual. We switched it off year ago because some users were printing the manual. Nowadays most is reading the manual online, and thus colorlinks brings a better reading experience. -- under hyperref \index{... |)} now also adds |)hyperpage to the idx file. This is needed for xindy to process the idx file. Makeindex does not seem to mind. Reported via private email. -- added examples of the nine much overlooked \setpageXX macros, these can be used instead of \settrimmedsize and \settrims to place a trimmed page on the stock in nine often used configurations. -- the way the class writes the pagesize to the output have been rewritten and should now work with lualatex. Therefore we no longer auto load the luatex85 package. We have also canceled \fixpdflayout and \fixdvipslayout (they now just emit a warning) -- the class will truncate certain layout lengths to a whole number of point (e.g. \textwidth). This can now be disabled using the fullptlayout class option, reported via https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/372381/3929 -- in as of the release of TeXLive 2018 \counterwithin/out will be added to the LaTeX kernel, we changed our version to use \providecommand accordingly -- removed loading the mempatch.sty package, it has been empty for many years -- now requiring ifpdf, ifetex, ifxetex and ifluatex packages to exist. Earlier we attempted to emulate them if missing, this does not make sense any more -- started adding "Recommended alternative" blocks to the manual. These are just mentioning more modern alternatives to what ever is mentioned in the manual. Fx using tcolorbox instead of the buildin framed env. Suggestions are welcome (by email) -- added \titlingpageend{}{} which can be used to set the clearing code at the end of the titlingpage env. -- clearified the interaction between 14pt and extrafontsizes options -- updating the embedded array and tabularx copies fixes https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/411862/3929 (an issue with bidi) -- dumped the emulated date for delarray to 2014/10/28 (the code, after the array update) is the same -- fixed a bad interaction in \subbottom when the showkeys and hyperref is loaded. Reported via https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/374301/3929 -- removed unnecessary \phansomsection from the thebiblipgraphy setup. Reported via https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/396303/3929 -- added \nobreak to \@vslnumleft and @vslnumright (internal to verse), reported via https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/415939/3929 -- added \phansomsection to \startnoteentrystart, otherwise \label in \pagenote does not work correctly. -- fixed a typo in \@listii where \itemsep is not pointing towards \itemsepii, similar to the other \@listK macros. -- fixed problem with \setfloatadjustment, font size changes did not come through

## 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.
