CTAN Update: latex-base

The LaTeX Project submitted an update to the

                  latex-base

bundle.

Version date: 2014-10-12 (of the documentation, not of the LaTeX
              format, which has remained unchanged!)

License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: documentation updates

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

 Karl Berry ran a spell-check over the sources and found a lot
 of missed errors - thanks for that.

 We also noticed that for some reason the packages in "base"
 (e.g., doc docstrip inputenc ... source2e) have been
 distributed for some time without corresponding pdfs (those
 pdfs have been in texlive due to Heiko I guess). 

 So this is now corrected and every .dtx file or other
 documentation source has a corresponding .pdf in base so that
 those files are now also on CTAN directly available. Note, that
 many of the kernel files are combined in source2e.pdf so those
 are not generated separately.

CTAN update: texfot

Karl Berry submitted an update to the

                texfot

package.

Version number: 2014-10-11
License type: pd

Summary description: Filter clutter from the output of a TeX run.

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

texfot is a Perl script to filter the online output from a TeX run,
attempting to show only those messages which probably deserve some
change in the source.  The TeX invocation itself need not change.

This update fixes bugs with merging stdout and stderr, and propagating
the exit status from TeX to be the exit status from the script.

package.

Version number: 1.8
License type: lppl

Summary description: Download OpenStreetMap maps for use in documents.

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

he goal of this package is the simplest possible provision of
map images (OpenStreetMap, Google Maps and Google Street View
are supported). In the simplest case, the specification of an
address is sufficient. The package loads the map using the
\write18 feature, which you must activate to use this package.
The image will be downloaded by an external Lua script. You can
use this script also from the command line.
