Posted on February 6, 2019 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

À la demande de plusieurs personnes, nous avons procédé à un enregistrement vidéos des interventions lors de la journée d'étude « Encoder numériquement une édition critique ».

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.

Writing up a good issue report including a clear MWE (Minimal Working Example) takes some effort, but it is also essential to help us identifying and fixing issues. Details on how to report bugs can be found in the article “New rules for reporting bugs in the LaTeX core software”. Please consult this article if you intend to submit a problem.

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.

New kids on the block

Posted on October 16, 2018 by LaTeX Project Feed

New kids on the block I’m happy to be able to announce that Ulrike Fischer and Enrico Gregorio have joined the LaTeX Project Team (Enrico already early this year, but I never properly announced that, so I’m doing that now). Contact details are on the team page. Ulrike is an accomplished and well-known LaTeX user, developer and TeX consultant, known both for her work in various areas of TeX and her thoughtful user support on various platforms both national and international. Enrico is a professor at the Computer Science department of the University of Verona. He will need no introduction either to any TeX user who ever visited TeX StackExchange where Enrico is known under the name of egreg, the person who holds the highest reputation rank there (a whooping 200k above the next person, who — guess what — is also on the LaTeX Team). We are extremely greateful to have both of them on board and gain from their experience and knowledge! A warm welcome — Frank
