Date: April 3, 2005 12:48:41 PM CEST
On Sun, 3 Apr 2005, David Kas­trup up­loaded a new ver­sion of pre­view-la­tex to CTAN. Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/la­tex/con­trib/pre­view, sup­port/pre­view-la­tex Li­cense: gpl Here are the re­lease notes: > 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.

pre­view – Ex­tract bits of a source for out­put

The pack­age is a free-stand­ing part of the pre­view-la­tex bun­dle. The pack­age pro­vides the sup­port pre­view-la­tex needs, when it chooses the mat­ter it will pre­view. The out­put may rea­son­ably be ex­pected to have other uses, as in html trans­la­tors, etc.
