Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ................................................................ The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: IEEE­tran LaTeX class Author's name: Michael Shell Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/IEEE­tran Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: The v1.7 up­date to IEEE­tran.cls Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
I am pleased to an­nounce the re­lease of an up­date to IEEE­tran.cls (the class file for IEEE jour­nal and con­fer­ence au­thors). Ver­sion 1.7 is a long awaited ma­jor up­date with many sig­nif­i­cant changes in­clud­ing: 1. A new mode to sup­port the IEEE Com­puter So­ci­ety for­mat. 2. A new \CLASSINPUT, \CLASSOPTION and \CLASSINFO in­ter­face that al­lows for more user con­trol and con­di­tional com­pi­la­tion. 3. Please note that sev­eral com­mands have been de­pre­ci­ated in fa­vor of re­place­ments with IEEE pre­fixes to bet­ter avoid po­ten­tial fu­ture name clashes with other pack­age's and make it eas­ier for users to de­ter­mine at a glance which com­mands are pro­vided by IEEE­tran pack­age's. Le­gacy code re­tained to al­low the use of the ob­so­lete forms (for now), but with a warn­ing mes­sage to the con­sole dur­ing com­pi­la­tion. See the changelog.txt file for a full list of the af­fected com­mands. 4. Im­proved com­pat­i­bil­ity with other pack­age's. 5. Sev­eral bug fixes. For the com­plete list of changes, see the file changelog.txt. IEEE­tran.cls is avail­able from CTAN: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/IEEE­tran/ as well as within IEEE's site: http://www.ieee.org/ I am also pleased to an­nounce the cre­ation of sup­port pages for IEEE­tran at my web­site: http://www.michaelshell.org/tex/ieee­tran/ where lat­est news, help­ful tips, an­swers to fre­quently asked ques­tions, beta re­leases and/or other sup­port can be found. I am pleased to an­nounce the re­lease of an up­date to the IEEE­tran BibTeX style, which is the of­fi­cial BibTeX style for au­thors of the In­sti­tute of Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tron­ics Engi­neers (IEEE) Trans­ac­tions jour­nals and con­fer­ences. The changes in ver­sion 1.12 in­clude: 1. New nat­bib com­pat­i­ble and al­phanu­meric la­bel vari­ants. Note that the IEEE­tran.bst pack­age on IEEE's site does not in­clude these styles as they are not for use with IEEE pub­li­ca­tions. The files can be ob­tained at CTAN. 2. New \BIBdecl hook that al­lows the user to ex­e­cute com­mands just prior to the first en­try. 3. Changed month ab­bre­vi­a­tions from Sept., July and June to Sep., Jul., and Jun., re­spec­tively, as IEEE now does. 4. Added CTL­name_url_pre­fix con­trol en­try type. 5. Up­dated IEEE bib­li­og­ra­phy string def­i­ni­tions. 6. Some bug fixes. See the com­ments at the top of the IEEE­tran.bst source code for a full list of all the changes. IEEE­tran.bst is avail­able from CTAN: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/IEEE­tran/ as well as within IEEE's site: http://www.ieee.org/ I am also pleased to an­nounce the cre­ation of sup­port pages for the IEEE­tran BibTeX style at my web­site: http://www.michaelshell.org/tex/ieee­tran/ where lat­est news, help­ful tips, an­swers to fre­quently asked ques­tions, beta re­leases and/or other sup­port can be found. I am pleased to an­nounce the re­lease of an up­date to the IEEE­tran­tools.sty pack­age on CTAN: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/IEEE­tran/tools/ IEEE­tran­tools.sty pro­vides sev­eral com­mands from IEEE­tran.cls, in­clud­ing \IEEEPARs­tart and the IEEEe­q­nar­ray fam­ily so that they may be used un­der other class files. Ver­sion 1.2 is based on ver­sion 1.7 of IEEE­tran.cls. Notable changes in­clude: 1. Sev­eral com­mands and en­vi­ron­ments have de­pre­ci­ated in fa­vor of re­place­ments with IEEE pre­fixes to bet­ter avoid po­ten­tial fu­ture name clashes with other pack­age's. Le­gacy code re­tained to al­low use of the ob­so­lete forms, but with an warn­ing mes­sage to the con­sole dur­ing com­pi­la­tion: \IEEEPARs­tart. For IED lists: \IEEEied­la­beljus­ti­fyc,\IEEEied­la­beljus­ti­fyl, \IEEEied­la­beljus­ti­fyr, \IEEEno­cal­cleft­mar­gin, \IEEEla­belin­dent, \IEEEset­la­bel­width and \IEEEuse­math­la­belsep. The fol­low­ing com­mands/lengths now re­quire the IEEE pre­fix and do not have legacy sup­port: \IEEEnor­maljot, \ifIEEEno­cal­cleft­mar­gin, \ifIEEEno­la­belin­dent­fac­tor, \IEEEiedlist­decl and \IEEEla­belin­dent­fac­tor. 2. New \IEEEPARs­tart con­trols in­clud­ing: \IEEEPARs­tartHEIGHTTEXT, \IEEEPARs­tartFONTSTYLE, \IEEEPARs­tartCAPSTYLE, \IEEEPARs­tartWORDFONTSTYLE, \IEEEPARs­tartWORDCAPSTYLE, \IEEEPARs­tartHOFFSET, \IEEEPARs­tartITLCORRECT and the (out­put) length \IEEEPARs­tartletwidth. 3. Sup­port for an op­tional ar­gu­ment to \bstctl­cite to pro­vide a way to spec­ify a dif­fer­ent aux file. See the com­ments at the top of the IEEE­tran­tools.sty source code for a full list of all the changes. I am also pleased to an­nounce the cre­ation of sup­port pages for IEEE­tran­tools at my web­site: http://www.michaelshell.org/tex/ieee­tran/tools/ where lat­est news, help­ful tips, an­swers to fre­quently asked ques­tions, beta re­leases and/or other sup­port can be found. En­joy! Michael Shell
