CTAN update: memoir

Date: February 21, 2022 5:40:53 PM CET
Lars Madsen submitted an update to the memoir package. Version number: 3.7q 2022-02-20 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset fiction, non-fiction and mathematical books Announcement text:
Changed (2022/02/20) o memoir v3.7q -- Added memhfixc autoloading to memoir (via \AtEndPackage{hyperref}...), then the equivalent code can be removed from hyperref -- now auto loads the etoolbox package in order to enable a future patching approach instead of overwriting kernel macros (nb: re-coding has not started yet) -- changed definition of \medspace into \providecommand for better testing with older kernels -- added some code to a hook provided by footmisc fixing a bug with the combination of memoir+footmisc+reledmac, especially the 2022 update of footmisc -- fixed typo in manual regarding \setupmaintoc, see https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/602963/3929 for details. -- The LaTeX team changed the order of the file/package hook names into a more precise scheme. \AtBegin/EndFile, \AtBegin/EndPackage, \AtBegin/EndClass changed accordingly A note to class maintainers that use memoir as a base, and package maintainers that apply changes when memoir is loaded: In future updates memoir will start to use a more patch/hook based approach to working with kernel macros instead of overwriting. This will give the kernel developers more room for the big changes that are coming to the kernel. We are not going to change any official memoir API macros, but internals may change. Given that the LaTeX kernel now have most parts of xparse build it, we might even start using some of those tools (who knows).

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.
