# CTAN update: memoir

Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version number: 3.7h 2018-12-12 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
>From the README Changed (2018/12/12) o memoir v3.7h -- The following packages are no longer embedded into the class sources: array, delarray, dcolumn and tabularx. These are all part of the _tools_ section of every LaTeX installation, thus there is no reason to embed it anymore (let alone keep track of when they are updated). Instead we require them from the LaTeX installation. Note that the class still makes its own defaults for some of the default settings for these packages. Historical note: When the class was first created updating LaTeX was not an easy task, often done by hand. Also there was no manual requirements, or if there were a manual it might not be easy to find. So it made sense to have it all in one place and their manuals added to the class manual. This usage information in the manual will stay, but might no longer be 100% up to date, so users are always referred to the package manuals. We may remove more embedded packages in the future and replace them with just require the distribution provided ones. -- remembered to note \pagerefname when dealing with page notes. -- fixed bug in inline toc entries in the manual when there are subitem that are not typeset and hyperref is in use (\endlinechar=-1 around the toc), also noted in the manual that this problem may occur and how to deal with it. One might argue that \endlinechar=-1 should be the default thenever the ToC are being typeset. -- Added \SingleSpacing* which does *not* add a \vskip at the end. Also adjusted \SingleSpacing such that it does not emit a \vskip when used in the preamble. This fixes <https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/298904/3929>

## 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.
