An­nounce­ment [2013-02-10]

Ver­sion 1.2 of the CTAN por­tal www.ctan.org is on­line

The next ver­sion of the CTAN por­tal is avail­able for pub­lic use. The ma­jor new fea­ture are the com­mu­nity func­tions. You can now reg­is­ter an ac­count and gain ac­cess to ad­di­tional pos­si­bil­i­ties to con­tribute to and ben­e­fit from CTAN.

As a logged in user you can vote and com­ment the pack­ages. Thus other users can ben­e­fit from your ex­pe­ri­ences with a pack­age. Your rat­ing can be ad­justed or deleted at any time.

We would like to en­cour­age you to take the op­por­tu­nity and con­tribute to CTAN in this novel way.

  • New: Num­bers on pack­ages and au­thors on land­ing page
  • New: Show­ing file type in­for­ma­tion in tex-archive browser as tool tip

  • Omit file name hy­phen­ation at sev­eral places
  • Cat­a­logue syn­chro­niza­tion fixed
