CTAN up­date: spec­tralse­quences

Date: Au­gust 4, 2017 6:18:59 AM CEST
Hood Chatham sub­mit­ted an up­date to the spec­tralse­quences pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.1.0 Li­cense type: lppl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Print spec­tral se­quence di­a­grams us­ing PGF/TikZ An­nounce­ment text:
This up­date pol­ishes the many de­fi­cien­cies in ver­sion 1.0. This in­cludes a few ma­jor bug­fixes that caused sig­nif­i­cant per­for­mance prob­lems and in­com­pat­i­bil­i­ties with cer­tain ver­sions of ex­pl3. New fea­tures in­clude han­dling for much larger charts, bet­ter lay­out, new loop­ing con­structs, and a large num­ber of small im­prove­ments to flex­i­bil­ity. The per­for­mance has also been care­fully tuned, so this new ver­sion is no­tice­ably faster.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/graph­ics/pgf/con­trib/spec­tralse­quences More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/spec­tralse­quences

spec­tralse­quences – Print spec­tral se­quence di­a­grams us­ing PGF/TikZ

The pack­age is a spe­cial­ized tool built on top of PGF/TikZ for draw­ing spec­tral se­quences. It pro­vides a pow­er­ful, con­cise syn­tax for spec­i­fy­ing the data of a spec­tral se­quence, and then al­lows the user to print var­i­ous pages of spec­tral se­quences, au­to­mat­i­cally choos­ing which sub­set of the classes, dif­fer­en­tials, and struc­ture lines to dis­play on each page. It also han­dles most of the de­tails of the lay­out.

At the same time, it is ex­tremely flex­i­ble. spec­tralse­quences is closely in­te­grated with TikZ to en­sure that users can take ad­van­tage of as much as pos­si­ble of its ex­pres­sive power. It is pos­si­ble to turn off most of the au­to­mated lay­out fea­tures and draw re­place­ments us­ing TikZ com­mands. The pack­age also pro­vides a care­fully de­signed er­ror re­port­ing sys­tem in­tended to en­sure that it is as clear as pos­si­ble what is go­ing wrong.
