CTAN Up­date Front End v5.4 for OS/2

Date: De­cem­ber 6, 2004 11:13:18 PM CET
On Mon, 6 Dec 2004, Wal­ter Sch­midt sub­mit­ted the new re­lease 5.4 of the EPM TeX Front End, a mod­ule for the OS/2 ed­i­tor EPM, which turns the ed­i­tor into an in­te­grated TeX en­vi­ron­ment. The TeX Front End is pri­mar­ily made for use with the TeX sys­tem VTeX/2. Main news with this re­lease: * All par­tic­u­lar fea­tures of the for­mer "pro­fes­sional" ver­sion, in­clud­ing the live menu, are now made avail­able also with the pre­com­piled (link­able) ver­sion. Spe­cial thanks to An­dreas Sch­nell­bacher! * The `clas­sic' fla­vor of the TFE (the one for use with emTeX) is no longer shipped as a pre­com­piled mod­ule. It can, how­ever, still be com­piled from the sources. * Both the source code and the ready-made mod­ule are com­pat­i­ble with NEPMD 1.01 and later. See the file NEWS for fur­ther de­tails.

– A so­phis­ti­cated type­set­ting en­gine

is a type­set­ting sys­tem that in­cor­po­rates a macro pro­ces­sor. A source doc­u­ment spec­i­fies or in­cor­po­rates a num­ber of macro def­i­ni­tions that in­struct the en­gine how to type­set the doc­u­ment. The en­gine also uses font met­rics gen­er­ated by , or by any of sev­eral other mech­a­nisms that in­cor­po­rate fonts from other sources into an en­vi­ron­ment suit­able for .

has been, and con­tin­ues, a ba­sis and an in­spi­ra­tion for sev­eral other pro­grams, in­clud­ing e- and PDF.

The dis­tri­bu­tion in­cludes the source of Knuth’s book; this source is there to read, as an ex­am­ple of writ­ing — it should not be pro­cessed with­out Knuth’s di­rect per­mis­sion.
