ptex2pdf 0.6

Posted on March 8, 2015 by There and back again Feed

ptex2pdfを更新した。すごく簡単な変更なんだけど、Cygwinの上に必要だ。shebangの「texlua」の後、余分な空白があった。すごく古いバグだ:2013年にツイッターで最初に述べたようだ。 明日からTeX Liveのバーションがアップされるつもりだ。CTANにもアップした。ダウンロードは「ptex2pdf-0.6.zip」、lua scriptだけ欲しかったら、こっち:「ptex2pdf.lua」 使い方等のため、特別のページを見て下さい:/software-projects/ptex2pdf.

Posted on March 6, 2015 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Je publie rarement en français la documentation des nouvelles fonctionnalités de eledmac/eledpar. Cependant la nouvelle version 1.19.0-1.13.0, que je viens d'envoyer au CTAN, apporte la résolution du problème des longues notes lorsqu'on utilise eledpar, sur lequel je butais depuis près de trois ans, qui m'a amené vers un certain nombres de fausses pistes alors que la solution tenait en deux petites modifications. Et comme il se trouve que c'était un bug vraiment gênant, je suis particulièrement (...) - (e)led(mac/par)
