Future releases of LaTeX will require an eTeX-enabled engine

Posted on November 3, 2016 by LaTeX Project Feed

Future releases of LaTeX will require an eTeX-enabled engine LaTeX2e was released in 1994 and since then the LaTeX3 Project have been committed to keeping it working smoothly for users. That means balancing up keeping the code stable with fixing bugs and adding new features. Back in 2003 the team announced that the eTeX extensions would be used by the kernel when they were available. The new primitives offered by eTeX make many parts of TeX programming easier and often there’s no way in ‘classical’ TeX to get the same effect. As eTeX was finalised in 1999, starting to use it seriously in around 2004 meant most people had access to them. Since then, the availability and use of eTeX has spread, and almost all users have them available. Indeed, the standard format-building routines for LaTeX have included them for many years. There are also a lot of packages on CTAN that use eTeX, most obviously any using the expl3 programming language that the LaTeX3 Project have created. The team had always meant to say at some stage that eTeX was now required, and indeed thought we had until we checked over the official newsletters! So as of the next ...

xparse revisited

Posted on October 29, 2016 by Stack Exchange TeX Blog Feed

At the recent UK-TUG meeting, I spoke about one of the most popular parts of the code written by the LaTeX3 Project, xparse. TeX-sx regulars will doubtless have come across xparse, either in one of the tagged questions or from one of the over 2400 posts featuring \NewDocumentCommand!
