Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version: 3.7k 2020-03-25 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
From the README: o memoir v3.7k -- Changed how glossaries are written to the glo file. Should now support UTF8 just fine. This fixes https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/529127/3929 -- typo in manual: for \subbottom the \label goes into the subtitle part, aka \subbottom[...\label{...}]{...}. Text in example fixed -- added a check for showkeys final-mode, and do nothing in that case. This fixes https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/526922/3929 -- brought the class into sync with booktabs dated 2020/01/12 -- the provided .ins files will now just overwrite instead of asking for permission. -- various typos

## 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.
