CTAN Update: latex-base

Date: October 13, 2014 4:18:47 PM CEST
The LaTeX Project submitted an update to the latex-base bundle. Version date: 2014-10-12 (of the documentation, not of the LaTeX format, which has remained unchanged!) License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: documentation updates Announcement text:
Karl Berry ran a spell-check over the sources and found a lot of missed errors - thanks for that. We also noticed that for some reason the packages in "base" (e.g., doc docstrip inputenc ... source2e) have been distributed for some time without corresponding pdfs (those pdfs have been in texlive due to Heiko I guess). So this is now corrected and every .dtx file or other documentation source has a corresponding .pdf in base so that those files are now also on CTAN directly available. Note, that many of the kernel files are combined in source2e.pdf so those are not generated separately. This release has no code changes.
This bundle is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/base/ http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/doc/ http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/unpacked/ More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/latex-base http://www.ctan.org/pkg/unpacked We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra RĂ¼be-Pugliese

unpacked – Unpacked copy of the sources

This package used to provide the source of in its form immediately prior to compilation into a format. When 2e first appeared, this was a significant support to users (since unpacking used on some machines to take a very long time).

However, the world has moved on since then, most users obtain their sources and formats via the distributions, and whoever is still interested in these files can easily obtain them by unpacking latex-base.tds.zip.
