Jim Hef­feron sub­mit­ted an up­date to the la­tex2e-help-tex­info pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 2018-07-03 Li­cense type: pd Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Unof­fi­cial ref­er­ence man­ual cov­er­ing LaTeX2e An­nounce­ment text:
We have up­dated the un­of­fi­cial LaTeX2e ref­er­ence man­ual. There are many changes in this ver­sion. We have gone through the two doc­u­ments la­tex-info and la­tex2e-ref­er­ence and made sure that this doc­u­ment con­tains all the in­for­ma­tion about user-level com­mands that those doc­u­ments con­tain. There have also been other changes, in­clud­ing switch­ing to a sin­gle uni­fied in­dex, a more uni­form en­try for­mat, and many more ex­am­ples and er­ror mes­sages. There are a num­ber of en­tirely new en­tries such as ones on \strut, cali­graphic math fonts, \bold­math, and black­board bold. There have also been ad­just­ments to the or­ga­ni­za­tion such as hav­ing sep­a­rate sec­tions for \part, \chap­ter, etc., and some com­bi­na­tions such as that of \clearpage and \clear­dou­blepage. In ad­di­tion, there were many bug fixes, in­clud­ing greatly shrink­ing the size of one of the graph­ics. The English ver­sion and the French ver­sion track closely, al­though they are sep­a­rate projects on CTAN. The Span­ish ver­sion needs a main­tainer. Sugges­tions, bug re­ports, all dis­cus­sion and con­tri­bu­tions are wel­come. The pack­age home page (with links to mail­ing lists, for­mat­ted ver­sions, etc.) is https://puszcza.gnu.org.ua/soft­ware/la­texref­man/.

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 French trans­la­tion is avail­able as a sep­a­rate pack­age.

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