CTAN update: SemanTeX
v0.501 A minor update to the previous update 0.500, fixing a (very important) error in the manual. v0.500 A relatively big update, at least in terms of syntax. Apart from bug fixes, the most important changes are: * The keyval syntax has been changed so that it now includes SPACES, similarly to the TikZ keyval syntax. In other words, keys like “upperleft” are now called “upper left”, and e.g. “d*withothersep” is now “d * with other sep”. Sorry about this, but it’s better to change it now than to annoy people later. And the syntax becomes a LOT prettier this way. * The Cohomology and Delimiter class types are now deprecated, as their syntax only cause confusion. Instead, I encourage you to use the Variable class type, which can essentially do the same thing. They are still included for backwards compatibility, though. * I have added keys for appending and pre-appending keys, i.e. adding code to the left and the right of existing keys, similarly to what you can do with pgfkeys. * For technical reasons, it is no longer possible to create keys taking 9 arguments (in fact, the previous implementation turned out to be buggy). So 8 is now the maximum. I hope to solve this issue later, but I doubt anyone is even going to notice.

SemanTeX – Semantic, keyval-based mathematics
The SemanTeX package for LaTeX delivers a more semantic, systematized way of writing mathematics, compared to the classical math syntax in LaTeX. The system uses keyval syntax, and the user can define their own keys and customize the system down to the last detail. At the same time, care has been taken to make the syntax as simple, natural, practical, and lightweight as possible.
Furthermore, the package has a companion package, called stripsemantex, which allows you to completely strip your documents of SemanTeX markup to prepare them e.g. for publication.
The package is still in beta, but is considered feature-complete and more or less stable, so using it at this point should be safe. Still, suggestions, ideas, and bug reports are more than welcome!
