### AUCTeX 11.88 released

Release notes for AUCTeX 11.88 with preview-latex
=================================================

AUCTeX provides by far the most wide-spread and sophisticated
environment for editing LaTeX, TeX, ConTeXt and Texinfo documents with
Emacs or XEmacs.  Combined with packages like RefTeX, flyspell and
others it is pretty much without peer as a comprehensive authoring
solution for a large variety of operating system platforms and TeX
distributions.  It supports document-dependent completion and syntax
highlighting, easily accessible menus, jumping to error locations in
the source file, a number of editing shortcuts, intelligent
indentation and filling of text during entry, and WYSIWYG previews of
graphical elements like math formulas right in the Emacs source
buffer, by virtue of its preview-latex component.

One part of the preview-latex subsystem is the central preview.sty'
file that is independently useful for a number of applications and is
available in unbundled form from CTAN.[1]

AUCTeX needs volunteers in particular for non-programming tasks:
documentation writing, tutorials, translations, reference material,
sleuth work, testing.

New features and fixed bugs in this release
-------------------------------------------

'TeX-PDF-mode' is now enabled by default.

Now 'TeX-previous-error' works with TeX commands if the new option
'TeX-parse-all-errors' is non-nil, which is the default.  When this

### RefTeX 4.34 released

Release Notes for RefTeX 4.34 (2009-08-09)
==========================================

RefTeX is a specialized package for support of labels, references,
citations, and the index in LaTeX.  RefTeX wraps itself around four
LaTeX macros: \label, \ref, \cite, and \index.  Using these macros
usually requires looking up different parts of the document and
searching through BibTeX database files.  RefTeX automates these
time-consuming tasks almost entirely.  It also provides functions to
display the structure of a document and to move around in this
structure quickly.

New Features and Bug Fixes
--------------------------

Reference styles make it easier to use special referencing macros as
provided by the varioref', fancyref' or hyperref' LaTeX packages.
The creation of BibTeX files with reftex-create-bibtex-file' now

New Features and Bug Fixes
--------------------------

This is the first release of RefTeX after the AUCTeX project took over
maintainership from Carsten Dominik which involved rearranging source
code and putting it under version control.

The installation procedure was reimplemented and the way to activate
RefTeX changed.  So be sure to check out the installation instructions
in the INSTALL file when upgrading because you might have to remove or
replace old commands related to RefTeX from your init file.

Some minor bugs were fixed.  Check the CHANGES file for details.

### Release: dvipng 1.8


The following release announcement has been posted to the auctex-devel
list by Jan-Åke Larsson <jalar <at> mai.liu.se>.  dvipng has been designed
with a focus of allowing it to be the main rendering engine for DVI
files in AUCTeX's preview-latex (by customizing preview-image-type'
to dvipng').

Release notes for version 1.8 of the dvipng package:

This program makes PNG graphics from DVI files as obtained from TeX
and its relatives.

The 1.8 release adds the possibility to include bitmapped images (PNG,
JPEG, and GIF), and changes PostScript inclusion so that the image is
not cropped to the boundingbox (unless requested) and has a
transparent background. From now on, for performance reasons, the
output image will be truecolor if an image is included.

The output quality is substantially improved when using the Freetype
font library. Freetype hinting has previously been disabled in dvipng
(because of substandard output from the Computer Modern font), but
from the 1.8 release onwards, hinting will be enabled in a mode that
prefers shape over contrast (which works well with the Computer Modern
font).

In short, the output quality is visibly better when Freetype is
available than when it isn't.

The release also fixes a few bugs and enhances the internal color
cache for better performance.
