New on CTAN: basicarith

Donald P. Goodman submitted the

                basicarith

package.

Version number: 1.0
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Macros for typesetting basic arithmetic.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

basicarith provides macros for typesetting basic arithmetic, in the
style typically found in textbooks.  It focuses on the American style
of performing these algorithms.  It is written mostly in low-level TeX;
the goal is to have it run in either plain TeX or LaTeX, but there are
two constructions that currently prevent this.  It is highly
configurable, with macros and lengths described in the documentation.

 This release fixes a problem when citing a manuscript without
 shorthand in combination with verbose styles. As a manuscript
 has no title and no author, no field was printed in an
 abbreviated form, as we didn't know which manuscript it was.

 Now, we print : location, library, collection, shelfmark.

New on CTAN: texlive-dummy-enterprise-linux-7

Bob Tennent submitted the

package.

Version date:  2014-10-16
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Dummy texlive RPM for use with RHEL 7 and
                     derived distributions

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

  The texlive packages available for RHEL-7 (and derived
  distributions such as CentOS-7) are relatively old (2012)
  and seriously incomplete. Although it is possible to
  remove the native texlive packages and install a more
  recent complete TeXLive distribution, any attempt to
  install packages that depend on texlive resources (such
  as a2ps, latex2html, lyx, etc.) will normally trigger the
  re-installation of the obsolete native packages. This is
  inefficient and the redundant packages can interfere with
  the TeXLive resources.

  This package contains a "dummy" rpm which is intended
  to satisfy any dependencies on texlive resources,
  allowing packages like a2ps, latex2html, lyx, etc. to be
  installed without using --nodeps and without triggering
