Date: October 17, 2018 2:10:07 PM CEST
Jim Hefferon submitted an update to the latex2e-help-texinfo package. Version number: 2018-10-15 License type: pd Summary description: Unofficial reference manual covering LaTeX2e Announcement text:
We have updated the unofficial LaTeX2e reference manual. The main change is that we now offer the manual in a version that is split into separate web pages for each section or subsection. This new version is more host-friendly. To celebrate we have set up a host. https://latexref.xyz We still offer the one-page version. http://latexref.xyz/dev/latex2e.html So you now have two easy-to-remember ways to access the reference on the web. If you'd like to host a web mirror of the manual, whether to have a convenient local reference or to offer a service to the community, we've included instructions at https://latexref.xyz/dev/mirroring.html. In addition to the format news, there were many bug fixes and new entries, including \smash and \phantom. The English version and the French version track closely, although they are separate projects on CTAN. The Spanish version needs a maintainer. Contributions are always welcome on the mailing list at latexrefman at tug.org. More systematic contributions are also very welcome; see the suggestions at https://latexref.xyz/dev/writing.html. More information, with links to mailing lists, other formatts, etc., is at the home page, https://puszcza.gnu.org.ua/software/latexrefman/.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/info/latex2e-help-texinfo More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/latex2e-help-texinfo

latex2e-help-texinfo – Unofficial reference manual covering

The manual is provided as Texinfo source (which was originally derived from the VMS help file in the DECUS distribution of 1990, with many subsequent changes). This is a collaborative development, and details of getting involved are to be found on the package home page. A Spanish translation is included here, and a French translation is available as a separate package.

All the other formats in the distribution are derived from the Texinfo source, as usual.
