Nächste Woche findet in Wuppertal die Frühjahrstagung der Deutschsprachigen Anwendervereinigung TeX (DANTE) e.V. statt. Für alte und neue TeX-Freunde ist das wieder eine interessante Gelegenheit, ins Gespräch zu kommen. Selbstverständlich ist man auch willkommen, wenn man nicht im Verein ist. … Weiterlesen →

It’s been great writing on Blogger.com, but we’ve decided to move to a new platform, thanks to some valuable help from a great, great friend. (More shall be revealed about this kind soul – he’s a familiar/famous character in the TeX community!)Thank you for reading LaTeX-my.blogspot.com – if you’re interested in following our new posts, please go on to (and bookmark) TeX.my. We’re still “moving in”, so there’ll likely be some re-decorations, but new posts (as well as all old posts and comments) will appear there from now on. Expect new layouts (automatic syntax highlighting wheee!); a new feature or two; and guest posts!See you there!
Did you know that \bf, \it, \rm, \sc etc. are deprecated and should...
About one month has passed and here is the usual updated of TeX Live packages for Debian, this time also with an update to biber to accompany the updated version of biblatex. This will be (probably) the last upload before TeX Live 2015 gets frozen in preparation for 2016. After the freeze there will be [...]
Getting an idea of what users actually use can sometimes be tricky. To help understand how people are using biblatex, there’s a short survey set up. In particular, we are looking for some idea of how people use back-ends: as I’ve mentioned before, having two of them means more ‘interesting’ development so it’s important to ... Read more
The version 3.3. of biblatex breaks the catalog feature of biblatex-manucripts-philology which allows to add catalog in the manuscripts description. I have no idea of the cause, and so the way to solve it. Consequently, if you use biblatex-manucripts-philology, wait before updating biblatex . - BibLaTeX
For the past few years, biblatex has been looked after by a small team led by Philip Kime. When we first took this up we were mindful of the need to think carefully about back-ends: how reference data is extracted from a .bib file or similar sources. There are currently two back-ends for biblatex: BibTeX ... Read more
The ‘traditional’ BibTeX model for dividing up names is based around four parts: First name(s) Last name(s) Prefix(es) (the ‘von part’) Suffix(es) (the ‘junior part’) This works well for many western European names, but falls down for many cases. As part of Biber/biblatex developments, Philippe Kime has been working on moving beyond this rigid model ... Read more
Following the most recent feedback from the Main Campus, USMThesis has been updated to v1.6.3 today. The changes this time are in usmthesis.tex, where the List of Publications is moved after the appendices (so now Main Campus and Engineering Campus are on the same page now!) Pun unintended. Looking at the ChangeLog, usmthesis v0.1 was Nov 2005 — so it’s been 10 years!! In fact if anyone wants to host a meetup/talk or something, ping me.

Only one week has passed since the last Debian/TeX Live update, and there is already a new one? The explanation is simple: consolidation of packages and preparation for 2016. The update comprises of uploads of texlive-base, texlive-lang, texlive-extra, texlive-bin, musixtex, pmx, m-tx, xmltex, jadetex. Besides the usual changes it brings a merge back in of [...]
J'ai publié un certain nombre de contributions sur le Comprehensive TEX Archive Network. Le présent article les recense, et les actualise automatiquement. Le CTAN contient la documentation officielle. Cependant, je les présentent également partiellement, au moment de leur sortie, sur le présent site. C'est pourquoi je vous fournit également un lien de recherche rapide. - LaTeX
