CTAN Update: tabu

Date: January 15, 2019 9:00:36 PM CET
The LaTeX Team submitted an update to the tabu package. Version: 2.9 2019-01-11 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Flexible LaTeX tabulars Announcement text:
Tabu Release 2.9 The contributed tabu package relied on patching internal interfaces of core latex packages and stopped working in recent LaTeX releases. The original author, Florent Chervet appears to be out of contact, and the package had not been updated since 2011. A "tabu-fixed" team has been set up at GitHub to make any immediate fixes required to make the package usable. Initially this consists of members of the LaTeX3 project. Please see https://github.com/tabu-fixed/tabu for details of issues fixed in this release, and an issue tracker for reporting any other issues.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/tabu The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/tabu/

tabu – Flexible tabulars

The package provides an environment, tabu, which will make any sort of tabular (that doesn’t need to split across pages), and an environment longtabu which provides the facilities of tabu in a modified longtable environment. (Note that this latter offers an enhancement of ltxtable.)

The package requires the array package, and needs e- to run (since array.sty is present in every conforming distribution of , and since every publicly available format is built using e-, the requirements are provided by default on any reasonable system). The package also requires xcolor for coloured rules in tables, and colortbl for coloured cells. The longtabu environment further requires that longtable be loaded. The package itself does not load any of these packages for the user.

The tabu environment may be used in place of tabular, tabular* and tabularx environments, as well as the array environment in maths mode. It overloads tabularx’s X-column specification, allowing a width specification, alignment (l, r, c and j) and column type indication (p, m and b).

\begin{tabu} to <dimen> specifies a target width, and \begin{tabu} spread <dimen> enlarges the environment’s “natural” width.
