Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version: 3.8.2 2024-01-26 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
>From the README Changes (2024/01/26) o memoir v3.8.2 -- In v3.8 I forgot to add some internal testing code related to \@startsection. The code experiment has now been added, but is not enabled by default. -- Axel Sommerfeldt suggested a useful macro abstraction for sidecaption and sidecontcaption that simplifies his adjustments whenever the caption package is loaded. -- Fixed a small (but important) typo in my maintainers note (Peter started memoir in 2001, not 2021) -- The Nov-2023 kernel update gave issued with our version of \verb. Now fixed by un-embedding the verbatim package. Issue first reported by Andrew Swann. -- Fixed a typo in \m at make@footnotetext where ##1 got interpreted as a macro name, not contents. Reported by Richard Zach. -- Replaced the embedded copy of the shortvrb package by loading the package instead. -- Replaced the embedded and modified copy of the verbatim package by just loading the package. Have chosen to *not* patch in the modification back in. Primarily because they are (1) disabled by default, (2) unknown how many users actually use them, (3) the implementation had errors. \setverbatimfont and the system to make comment-like envs of course stayed. The features removed are - marking tabs using several spaces - wrapping webatim text at white space Macros disabled - \tabson (\tabsoff redef to do nothing) - \wrappingon (\wrappingoff redef to do nothing) No longer used - \verbatimbreakchar - \verbatimindent Removing the embedded verbatim copy also fixes the issue with \verb+a b+ behaving like \verb*+a b+. Many of the other verbatim-like creations have had tabs support removed -- In verbatim 1.5x the macro \verbatiminput* has been altered slightly such that it also marks tabs as spaces (just like \verb* now also does via a kernel update). If 1.5x has not been released yet, we automatically apply that patch. -- Updated \readverbatim* with the same patch as \verbatiminput* so it also marks tabs as spaces. o memhfixc v1.22 -- The change Axel S. suggested in memoir removes the need for memhfixc to redefine \endsidecaption and \endsidecaption, thus those redefinitions have been removed.

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.
