package.

License type: lppl

Summary description: PDF/X-1a and PDF/A-1b support for pdfTeX.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The  pdfx  package has been revised (v.1.5.3) to support various PDF
standards, including PDF/A (all flavours and levels), PDF/X (most
levels) and PDF/E. With pdfLaTeX as the engine, this package is used to
provide the correct PDF key-values, Color Profiles and XMP Metadata to
allow a document to be identified as conforming to a published PDF
ISO-standard. Unicode CMAP resources are generated, as required for
PDF/A-2u, etc. It does *not* ensure fully tagged PDF (e.g. for
PDF/A-1a).

PDF/X-4p, PDF/X-5pg and PDF/VT and currently not fully implemented.
Support for these, and other improvements, will be supplied in a later
update.

New on CTAN: comment_io

Carl Martin Henrik Larsson submitted the

                comment_io

package.

Version:  1.0 / 2015-05-12
License:  gpl3

Summary description:  A Python script to comment and uncomment lines.

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

 comment_io is a small script written in Python to help you to
 automatically comment and uncomment lines in your code.

 The program was sprung out of a need I myself had of turning on and
 off certain environments in LaTeX. After digging around, trying to
 make this happen by using only LaTeX code, I finally got fed up and
 just wrote this program instead.

 Basically, you use the program by marking certain lines in your code
 with certain commands. The program then detects these commands and
 comments or uncomments the whole line depending on which mode you’ve
 set it to.
