New on CTAN: optidef

J. Lago Garcia submitted the

                 optidef

package.

Version number: 2016-06-06
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Provides a standard set of environments for writing 
minimization problems

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

This small library provides a standard set of environments for writing 
minimization problems. The most important features are:
- It automatically aligns the problems in three points with an optional 
fourth:
       * Beginning of the words "minimize/argmin" and "subject to"

       * The objective function and the longest left hand side of
         the constraints

       * The $= | > | <$ signs of the constraints.

       * Optionally, the user can add manually a double align
         character && to align some common constraints feature. A
         clear example could be the constraints names, e.g.
        (boundary constraint) alignment with (dynamic constraint).

TeX Live 2016 released

TeX Live 2016 has been released.  It is now or will be soon available
from CTAN sites (http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive).  Package
updates will resume in another day or two.

As usual, we recommend doing a network install in one way or another
instead of downloading the large (3+gb) .iso -- see
http://tug.org/texlive/acquire.html for a discussion of the various
alternatives.

If anyone notices stale or missing information on the TL web pages, or
problems with the release, please report as usual.

MacTeX (http://tug.org/mactex) has also been released and are available
from CTAN.

The TeX Collection DVD (http://tug.org/texcollection) is going to
production shortly and should be available in due course.  I don't have
an ETA at this point in time.

Happy TeXing,
Karl

New on CTAN: markdown

Vít Novotný submitted the

                markdown

package.

Version number: 1.0.0
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: A package for converting and rendering markdown
documents inside TeX

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

The Markdown package provides facilities for the conversion of markdown
markup to plain TeX. These are provided both in form of a Lua module
and in form of plain TeX, LaTeX, and ConTeXt macro packages that enable
the direct inclusion of markdown documents inside TEX documents.

Architecturally, the package consists of the Lunamark Lua module by
John MacFarlane, which was slimmed down and rewritten for the needs of
the package. Lunamark provides speedy markdown parsing for the rest of
the package. On top of Lunamark sits code for the plain TeX, LaTeX, and
ConTeXt formats by Vít Novotný.
