Posted on December 3, 2019 by Overleaf Feed

siunitx v3 alpha 2

Posted on November 2, 2019 by Some TeX Developments Feed

I’ve been talking about a new version of siunitx for a number of years now, and progress has been slower than I’d hoped. After something of a hiatus (I released the first alpha last year), I’ve been back looking at the code again and expanding the range of tests to try to pick up more of the hidden bugs. I’m hoping now to have a reasonably regular alpha series as I build toward a first feature-complete beta, probably by the Spring. Taking advantage of the possibilities offered by GitHub and Travis-CI, I’ve decided to place the zip files there rather than upload them here to my blog. (To be fair, the blog itself is currently hosted by GitHub too!) The work on version 3 is taking place throughout the codebase, but the differences between the first and second alpha versions are focussed in two areas Testing the backward-compatibility options Beginning to implement quantities There are still a lot of features to add, but for me the code works as a user. Of course, I don’t use most of the features! One thing that’s definitely not done is full compatibility with version 2 font features. At the moment, I feel I’ll ...
