SUBMITTING BUG REPORTS IV. REMARKS ON THIS RELEASE V. CHANGE LOG ======================================================================== I. OVERVIEW The amsmath package is an extension package for LaTeX that provides additional features to facilitate mathematical typesetting. It has been developed by the American Mathematical Society and released for general use as a service to the mathematical community. A number of smaller auxiliary packages are also distributed with the amsmath package. Effective in 2016, maintenance of amsmath was transferred from AMS to the LaTeX3 Project; as amsmath is considered a "required" package, this centralizes control over the core LaTeX components. ======================================================================== II. INSTALLATION AND GETTING STARTED In order to use amsmath you need to have TeX installed first. For information on getting TeX see one of the following: http://www.tug.org/ http://www.ams.org/tex/tex-resources It is recommended to install a comprehensive distribution, such as TeX Live, MiKTeX for Windows, or MacTeX for Macintosh. As part of the "required" LaTeX package subset, amsmath will already be available if one of these distributions is chosen, If you are installing amsmath manually, the most recent version will be available from the CTAN archives https://www.ctan.org/pkg/amsmath The primary documentation for amsmath is in amsldoc.pdf Additional documentation files include: diffs-m.txt subeqn.pdf technote.pdf testmath.pdf which are included in the collection. All of these can be accessed easily with most distributions by entering "texdoc filename" at the command line, or via "TeXdoc Online" at http://texdoc.net . ======================================================================== III. SUBMITTING BUG REPORTS Bug reports should be submitted using the standard LaTeX bug reporting system: See the form at http://www.latex-project.org/bugs/ and follow the resulting instructions. Select "amslatex" when asked for a category. Questions regarding usage can be posted at http://tex.stackexchange.com . Check first to see whether your question has already been answered. ======================================================================== IV. REMARKS ON THIS RELEASE Version 2.17 Fixes a bug in the spacing around the closing delimiter in generalised fractions in xetex and luatex version added in release 2.16. Fixes a bug that overfull lines did not always produce warnings. ======================================================================== V. CHANGE LOG The file changes.txt lists recent changes in reverse chronological order. The file diffs-m.txt contains information on development and changes prior to 2000. [end]

## amsmath – AMS mathematical facilities for LaTeX

The principal package in the AMS-LaTeX distribution. It adapts for use in LaTeX most of the mathematical features found in AMS-TeX; it is highly recommended as an adjunct to serious mathematical typesetting in LaTeX.

When amsmath is loaded, AMS-LaTeX packages amsbsy (for bold symbols), amsopn (for operator names) and amstext (for text embedded in mathematics) are also loaded.

amsmath is part of the LaTeX required distribution; however, several contributed packages add still further to its appeal; examples are empheq, which provides functions for decorating and highlighting mathematics, and ntheorem, for specifying theorem (and similar) definitions.
