CTAN Update: preview

Date: January 15, 2007 10:10:43 AM CET
On Sat, 13 Jan 2007, Ralf Angeli submitted an update of the preview package. Here are the release notes: > > The main purpose of the preview package is the extraction of selected > elements from a LaTeX source, like formulas or images, into separate > pages of a DVI file. This works with DVI files postprocessed by > either Dvips and Ghostscript or dvipng, but it also works when you are > using PDFTeX for generating PDF files. > > Current uses of the package include the preview-latex package for > WYSIWYG functionality in the AUCTeX editing environment, generation of > previews in LyX, as part of the operation of the ps4pdf package, the > tbook XML system and some other tools. > > The preview package is being developed along and distributed with > preview-latex. With the integration of preview-latex into AUCTeX as > of version 11.81, the preview package became part of AUCTeX as well. > It can therefore be obtained as part of AUCTeX distribution files > available at <URL:ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/auctex/>. CTAN provides > the standalone preview package at <CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/preview>. > For more information about the preview package please refer to the > home page of AUCTeX at <URL:http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/>. > > Version 11.84 of the preview package is mainly a bug fix release. > Noteworthy changes include a fix for XymTeX catcodes and the addition > of chapter headings to the list of constructs previewable out of the > box.

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.
