CTAN Up­date: l3build + l3k­er­nel + l3­pack­ages + l3­ex­per­i­men­tal

Date: April 3, 2017 5:07:48 PM CEST
The LaTeX Team sub­mit­ted an up­date to the l3build + l3k­er­nel + l3­pack­age's + l3­ex­per­i­men­tal bun­dles. Ver­sion: 2017-04-01 Li­cense: lp­pl1.3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A test­ing and build­ing sys­tem for (La)TeX An­nounce­ment text:
Re­lease 2017-04-01 Boolean func­tions ----------------- This re­lease marks the func­tions - \bool_lazy_all:n(TF) - \bool_lazy_and:nn(TF) - \bool_lazy_any:n(TF) - \bool_lazy_or:nn(TF) as sta­ble. This will be fol­lowed at a later date by a change in \bool_if:n(TF), which will move to be­ing greedy: this change is nec­es­sary as there are cir­cum­stances un­der which \bool_if:n(TF) cur­rently fails with a low-level er­ror due to lazy eval­u­a­tion. Pack­age au­thors are en­cour­aged to con­sider em­ploy­ing these new func­tions where ap­pro­pri­ate. Ver­sion iden­ti­fiers ------------------- From this re­lease the SVN $Id lines are re­moved from LaTeX3 sources. The func­tion \GetIdInfo is dep­re­cated from this re­lease, and the team rec­om­mend that pack­age au­thors in­clude ver­sion in­for­ma­tion di­rectly in \Pro­videsEx­plPack­age (or sim­i­lar) lines. l3build ------- In­ter­nal changes are fo­cussed on com­pat­i­bil­ity with LuaTeX v1.04+.

l3­ex­per­i­men­tal – Ex­per­i­men­tal 3 con­cepts

The l3­ex­per­i­men­tal pack­ages are a col­lec­tion of ex­per­i­men­tal im­ple­men­ta­tions for as­pects of the 3 ker­nel, deal­ing with higher-level ideas such as the De­signer In­ter­face. Some of them work as stand alone pack­ages, pro­vid­ing new func­tion­al­ity, and can be used on top of with no changes to the ex­ist­ing ker­nel.

The present re­lease in­cludes:

  • l3bench­mark for mea­sur­ing the time taken by to run cer­tain code;
  • l3c­ctab, sup­port for sav­ing and restor­ing cat­e­gory codes en masse in a ta­ble;
  • l3­color, sup­port for set­ting col­ors us­ing a range of color mod­els;
  • l3­draw, a code-level in­ter­face for con­struct­ing draw­ings;
  • l3str, sup­port for string ma­nip­u­la­tion;
  • l3sys-shell, which pro­vides ab­strac­tions for com­mon shell func­tions like file dele­tion and copy­ing;
  • xcoffins, which al­lows the align­ment of boxes us­ing a se­ries of ‘han­dle’ po­si­tions, sup­ple­ment­ing the sim­ple ref­er­ence point;
  • xgal­ley, which con­trols boxes re­ceiv­ing text for type­set­ting.
