New on CTAN: autosp

Bob Tennent submitted the

                autosp

package.

Version:  2015-05-25
License:  gpl2

Summary description:  A Preprocessor that generates
                      note-spacing commands for MusiXTeX scores.

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

 autosp  simplifies the creation of MusiXTeX scores by converting
 (non-standard) commands of the form \anotes ... \en into one or
 more conventional note-spacing commands, as determined by the
 note values themselves, with \sk spacing commands inserted as
 necessary.  The coding for an entire measure can be entered one
 part at a time, without concern for note-spacing changes within
 the part or spacing requirements of other parts.

 For example,

    \anotes\qa J\qa K&\ca l\qa m\ca n\en

 generates

    \Notes\qa J\sk\qa K\sk&\ca l\qa m\sk\ca n\en

New on CTAN: termmenu

Sean Allred submitted the

package.

Version number: 2015-05-23
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: The package provides support for terminal-based
menus using expl3

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

This package provides support for terminal-based menus using expl3.

When writing programs, it's often required to present the user with a
list of options/actions.  The user is then expected to select one of
these options for the program to process.

`termmenu` provides this mechanism for TeX.  Using `termmenu` requires
only `expl3` support, thus the `l3kernel` and `l3packages` are both
required.
