----- Forwarded message from ctan-upload ----- Name of contribution: pdfTeX 1.11a Name and email: Martin Schröder <martin at pdftex.org> Suggested location on CTAN: systems/pdftex Summary description: A new stable version of pdfTeX License type: gpl Announcement text:
Major changes since 1.10b
- New command \pdftrailer analogue to \pdfcatalog whose argument ends up in the trailer dictionary. - The behaviour when an included pdf has a newer version than the one specified with \pdfoptionpdfminorversion can be controlled by the new internal integer \pdfoptionpdfinclusionerrorlevel: If it's 0, pdfTeX gives only a warning; if it's 1, it raises an error. This can also be set in pdftex.cfg with pdf_inclusion_errorlevel - The syntax for outlines has been extended to allow attributes: <outline spec> --> <attr spec> <action spec> [count <number>] <general text> See http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-pdftex/2003-June/000165.html - The syntax of \pdfobj has been extended: \pdfobj <object type spec> (h, v, m) <object type spec> --> reserveobjnum | [useobjnum <number>] [<attr spec>] [stream [<attr spec>]] <object contents> <object contents> --> <file spec> | <general text> When the optional keyword `reserveobjnum' and `useobjnum' is not given, the behaviour is unchanged. See also http://tug.org/mailman/htdig/pdftex/2003-March/003814.html - Bugfix: /CreationDate didn't care for the timezone and could be fooled. See http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-pdftex/2003-July/000223.html - Bugfix: The translation of 8-bit characters in included pdfs that had their eighth bit set sometimes got wrong because of a missing typecast. See http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-pdftex/2003-July/000216.html - Bugfix: pdfTeX -ini would crash with a minimal file because it didn't read it's config and so didn't know anything about fonts. See http://tug.org/pipermail/pdftex/2003-July/004262.html - Bugfix: \pdfstartlink would produce spurious /NewWindow entries. Also the syntax of <action spec> and <goto-action spec> has been cleaned up. See http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-pdftex/2003-June/000167.html - Bugfix: \pdffontattr was not used for T3 fonts. See http://tug.org/pipermail/pdftex/2003-June/004127.html - Bugfix: The cropbox of an included pdf would sometimes not be used. See http://tug.org/pipermail/pdftex/2003-May/004037.html - pdfTeX uses xpdf 2.02 %EOF the archive contains NEWS, README and pdftex.xml, which should be extracted and put alongside the archive. And pdftex.xml should go into the catalogue. :-)
Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested in CTAN:systems/pdftex Graham, can you please use systems/pdftex/pdftex.xml for the catalogue? Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team
