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
downloaded from <URL:ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/auctex/≥ as a tarball
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.

Thanks.  I could install it successfully on Windows.

However, when I use:
It produced the following error information:

I've never seen such error messages before.  Why does it want to set a
`font-latex-math-face' attribute?  Did you customize some of the faces
defined by font-latex?  Can you provide a minimal example file
exhibiting the problem?

Again, can you provide a minimal example file exhiniting the problem?

This is an AUCTeX error and has nothing to do with preview-latex.
Please report it using M-x TeX-submit-bug-report RET

No comment.

Adding \colon to LaTeX-math-default

Hi,

is it reasonable to add \colon to the LaTeX-math-default list and
bound it to (surprise!) `?:'?

Best regards,

LaTeX exited abnormally with code 255, modeline fas [0]

Hello!

pdfTeX 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4) seems to have a bug that makes  
it impossible to use LucidaSans-Oblique TrueType font that come with  
Java. pdfTeX finishes in the *output* buffer this way:

	</usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/truetype/lucida/ 
llsdo8a.ttf></usr/loc
	al/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/truetype/lucida/llsro8a.ttf
	Error: pdflatex (file  
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/truetype/lucida/
	llsro8a.ttf): cmap: unicode 2010 is mapped to multiple glyphs
	 ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!
	
	LaTeX exited abnormally with code 255 at Sun Apr  3 23:21:24

but the modeline states: "(LaTeX [0]: exit).

As nobody else seems to have an opinion here and it looks useful to me
(even though I barely use math myself), I installed it.  Thanks for
the suggestion.  Addtionally I cleaned up a few things in the math
menu.

Yes, and where exactly is the problem?

The number between the brackets is not the exit code but the current
page being formatted.  It is the value of the variable
`TeX-current-page'.
