Date: March 21, 2016 8:19:38 PM CET
Timo Baumann submitted an update to the BibArts package. Version number: 2.1 License type: gpl Summary description: "Arts"-style bibliographical information Announcement text:
Changes from BibArts version 2.0 (2015) to version 2.1: You now may choose your own order of page and footnote numbers in the index (roman--arabic, arabic--roman, etc.). Type bibsort -s2 xxxx for page and ... -f2 xxxx for footnote numbers. xxxx are permutations of four letters out of nRrAas (a=alph, A=Alph, n=arabic, R=Roman, r=roman, s=fnsymbol): You always have to set n and s, and to choose R *or* A, and r *or* a. E.g. srnR means, that you can use \Roman in your text, but you do not have to. bibsort is able to evaluate the new fnsymbols (which expand to \TextOrMath). If bibsort should write into files with a different prefix as the .aux input file, you have to use -o <outfile> now. And you may type bibsort <infile>, *or* bibsort -i <infile> (e.g., when the input file name begins with '-'). bibarts.sty will be even loaded, when ~":;!?'`<> are active (catcode 13); and bibsort is sorting also "z (not only "s) as \ss now; see bibarts.pdf. bibsort sorts the 'official' $Greek variables$ since version 2.0. To write single words in Old Greek, BibArts 2.1 also provides \Alpha [A], \Beta [B], \Epsilon [E], \Zeta [Z], \Eta [H=sort=>E], \Iota [I], \Kappa [K], \Mu [M], \Nu [N], \Rho [P==>R], \Tau [T], \Chi [X==>Ch], \Omicron [O], \omicron [o]. BibArts 2.0 set \footnotesep to 2ex, whereas 2.1 does *not* change the pre-setted value. If you want to continue with the 2.0 distance between two footnotes, you will have to type \setlength{\footnotesep}{2ex} in your text. Some of the prepared text elements (captions) have been modernized. The \evkctitlename changed from {Short Titles} to {Shortened References}. And \gannouncektitname changed to '... im Folgenden'. To restore the 2.0 def.: \renewcommand{\gannouncektitname}{ (\kern 0.015em im folgenden \baupcorr} Published under the terms of the GNU General Public License. BibArts 2.1 (C) Timo Baumann 2016

BibArts – “Arts”-style bibliographical information

BibArts is a package to assist in making bibliographical features common in the arts and the humanities (history, political science, philosophy, etc.).

bibarts.sty provides commands for quotations, abbreviations, and especially for a formatted citation of literature, journals (periodicals), edited sources, and archive sources. In difference to earlier versions, BibArts 2.x helps to use slanted fonts (italics) and is able to set ibidem automatically in footnotes. It will also copy all citation information, abbreviations, and register key words into lists for an automatically generated appendix. These lists may refer to page and footnote numbers. BibArts has nothing to do with . The lists are created by bibsort (see below).

BibArts requires the program bibsort, for which the sources and a Windows executable are provided. This program creates the bibliography without using MakeIndex or . Its source is not written with any specific operating system in mind. A summary of contents is in English; the full documentation is in German.
