1. Cor­rects a long-stand­ing bug that when the main file uses bib­tex, and uses \in­clude for sub­doc­u­ments, changes in bib­li­og­ra­phy ci­ta­tions did not al­ways trig­ger a re­run of bib­tex. 2. Fixed a prob­lem that la­texmk did not de­tect changed aux files etc on a small doc­u­ment when the run of (pdf)la­tex was within the 1-sec­ond gran­u­lar­ity of file­times. 3. Im­proved start-up times on some large doc­u­ments by avoid­ing un­nec­es­sary re­cal­cu­la­tions of md5 check­sums. 4. Deals bet­ter with eps-to-pdf con­ver­sions re­ported by ep­stopdf pack­age. 5. Mi­nor fixes and im­prove­ments.

la­texmk – Fully au­to­mated doc­u­ment gen­er­a­tion

La­texmk com­pletely au­to­mates the pro­cess of gen­er­at­ing a doc­u­ment. Given the source files for a doc­u­ment, la­texmk is­sues the ap­pro­pri­ate se­quence of com­mands to gen­er­ate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hard­copy ver­sion of the doc­u­ment.

An im­por­tant fea­ture is the “pre­view con­tin­u­ous mode”, where the script watches all of the source files (pri­mary file and in­cluded and graph­ics files), and re­runs , etc., when­ever a source file has changed. Thus a pre­viewer can of­fer a dis­play of the doc­u­ment’s lat­est state.
