New CTAN package: SASnRdisplay

the daemon wakes me from my mid-day snooze:

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> 
> Name of contribution: SASnRdisplay
> Author's name: Lars Madsen
> Package version: 0.9
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/SASnRdisplay/
> Summary description: Package to typeset SAS or R code or output.
> License type: lppl
> 
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> From the README:
> 
> Where I work statisticians mostly use SAS and R when doing
> calculations or simulations. Thus they need to be able to import
> results or source code into their LaTeX projects.
> 
> This package is an extension to an earlier (unreleased) package which
> only handled SAS. The package simply serve as a sort of front end to
> the listings package, creating some new lstlisting like environments
> and import macros similar to \lstinputlisting.
> 
> All configuration is handled via a hierarchy of listings style.
> 
> The is package also capable of overloading the Sweave and SASweave packages.

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
catalogue repository.

CTAN package update: latexmk

the daemon cries (so that even my deaf ears hear it):

> Name of contribution: latexmk
> Author's name: John Collins
> Package version: 4.28c
> Location on CTAN: support/latexmk/
> Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation routine
> License type: gpl
> 
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> 1. When biber doesn't find the bib file, latexmk treats this as a
> warning rather than a fatal error, so further processing can continue
> normally. 
> 2. Latexmk now parses correctly error messages from biber v. 0.9.7.

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
catalogue repository.

> Users may view the package catalogue entry at
>   http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/latexmk.html

New CTAN package: gates

the jolly old daemon doesn't suffer from colds, like me...

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> 
> Name of contribution: gates
> Author's name: Paul Isambert
> Package version: 0.1
> Location on CTAN: macros/generic/
> Summary description: Implementing modular and customizable code.
> License type: lppl
> 
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> Gates is designed to write code in a modular fashion: big macros or
> functions are divided into small chunks (called gates) with names,
> which can be externally controlled (e.g. they can be disabled,
> subjected to conditionals, loops...) and/or augmented with new chunks.
> 
> Thus complex code can be easily customized without having to rewrite
> it, or even understand its implementation: the behavior of existing
> gates can be modified, and new ones can be added, without endangering
> the whole design. This allows code to be hacked in ways the original
> authors might have never envisioned.
> 
> Gates is implemented independantly for both TeX and Lua. The TeX
> implementation requires the texapi package, whereas the Lua version
> can be run with any Lua interpreter, not just LuaTeX.

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and created an

> this doesn't change anything for basic usage, but now the code can be
> modified easily to anybody's whim.

CTAN package update -- Pinlabel: a TeX labelling package

quoth the daemon, as i got back from a bout of christmas shopping:

> Name of contribution: Pinlabel: a TeX labelling package
> Author's name: Colin Rourke
> Package version: v1.2
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/
> Summary description: A TeX labelling package
> License type: lppl
> 
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> This is version 1.2 of the pinlabel package and replaces the 
> existing version.  It is 100% backwardly compatible.  The new 
> feature is that it will now read bounding box information from 
> a PDF figure file if you do not supply an eps or ps version.  
> Thus you can draw your figures directly as pdf's and label 
> them, just as you would an eps figure.    

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
