AUCTeX 11.87 released

Release notes for AUCTeX 11.87 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
-------------------------------------------

AUCTeX now supports Biber in conjunction with biblatex in addition to
BibTeX.

Each AUCTeX mode now has its own abbrev table.  On Emacsen which

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.

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.

preview-latex 0.9.1 released


Release notes for version 0.9.1 of the preview-latex package:

preview-latex makes LaTeX a tightly integrated component of your
editing workflow by visualizing selected source chunks (such as single
formulas or graphics) directly as images in the source buffer.
You get to have your eye candy and edit it, too.

The employed style file preview.sty' is independently useful for
extraction of selected text elements as images.

The package is released under the GNU Public License (GPL) and can be
or as RPM files.  At the current point of time, at least GNU
Emacs-21.3 under the X window system or XEmacs-21 in version 21.4.10
or later, AUCTeX (11.51 or later required for PDF support), a working
LaTeX installation and GhostScript are required.  dvipng[1] (version
1.4 or later: teTeX-3.0 works, TeXlive2004 not), a very fast dvi
converter, can be used to speed up the conversion.  For Windows[2],
MacOS Carbon[3] or native GTK+ toolkit support[4], a developer
version[5] of GNU Emacs (to be released as 22.1) is definitely
required; for other platforms, use of it is advantageous.

The installation procedure has been further improved: more
configurations should now be detected automatically.  It is strongly
recommended that you remove any previous installation before
installing this version to avoid keeping conflicting or unnecessary
files.  In particular version 0.9 has been known to install into
strange (but working) places at times and will likely render later
installed versions inoperative.
