Filling and version control

Posted on January 20, 2019 by Content AND Presentation Feed

It has been said a lot of times that when writing some (natural language) text with version control in Emacs, filling is a bad idea. Any change involving adding or deleting a significant number of characters and then refilling can result in all subsequent lines in a paragraph changed, and the diff looks really ugly then. The solution usually proposed is putting each sentence on a separate line, and then just use visual-line-mode to wrap your lines on the screen without putting any hard newlines in. Well, I sort of dislike this idea.

Reflections on an amazing year—2018 comes to a close

Posted on December 31, 2018 by Overleaf Feed

The past twelve months have been some of the biggest in Overleaf's history. Not only did we successfully launch the new Overleaf platform, we also hit the remarkable milestone of having over three million users worldwide! We even nudged our way into the Top 100 fastest growing companies in the UK as reported by SyndicateRoom earlier this month. This is a fantastic achievement, and we'd like to say a huge thank you to all our users, customers and partners who've helped us continue to provide the best service we can, and who've provided invaluable feedback and input into the new platform. As 2018 comes to a close, we thought we'd take a moment to look back on some of our personal highlights from 2018, and to wish everyone a fun, happy and successful 2019 😊

Bringing the Git bridge to v2—it's here!

Posted on December 7, 2018 by Overleaf Feed

We’re delighted to announce that a git integration for Overleaf v2 is now in beta! The integration lets you git clone, push and pull changes between the online Overleaf editor, and your local offline git repository. The git bridge was a popular feature of Overleaf v1, and we heard a lot of feedback from the community about it being important to keep as a feature in Overleaf v2. It’s been one of the more challenging technical parts of the move to v2 for us, but we’re pleased to announce that it’s now ready for beta testing, ahead of a full launch in early January 2019.

Experimental benchmarking functions

Posted on October 28, 2018 by LaTeX Project Feed

Experimental benchmarking functions Prompted by a TeX-sx question on benchmarking, the team have added a new experimental package to expl3: l3benchmark. This new material provides a convenient interface for benchmarking: seeing how long it takes for blocks of code to run. This uses the underlying ‘timer’ support in modern TeX engines (XeTeX at present not included), but adds some handy wrappers so most of the hard work is automated. The new code is pretty experimental, so we are hoping to get feedback on the interfaces. For example, we’ve provided \benchmark:n, which automatically loops code to get enough run time to produce a ‘meaningful’ timing. Do we also need to have a \benchmark_once:n version, or how about a begin/end pairing for code that can’t be run in a loop? We’d love to hear from developers on how they see this, either through a posting on the LATEX-L discussion list, by mail to the team, as a GitHub issue, or otherwise.
