Update to Oberdiek package 2019-11-12 Package updates --------------- holtxdoc 2019/11/12 v0.29 New \CTANpkg command to generate links of the form https://ctan.org/pkg/zref makerobust 2019/11/12 v2.0 The makerobust package (which is no longer needed since LaTeX includes a \MakeRobust command by default) has been moved to a separate repository. https://github.com/ho-tex/makerobust (Separate CTAN upload to follow) hobsub (and hobsub-generic and hobsub-hyperref) The hobsub packages were disabled at the previous release and have now been moved to a separate repository. https://github.com/ho-tex/hobsub (Separate CTAN upload to follow) luatex (and luatex-loader) Heiko Oberdiek's luatex package was influential in setting up initial support for LuaTeX in LaTeX, however the functionality was merged many years ago into luatexbase and from there into ltluatex, and so included by default into the format, or into separately distributed packages https://ctan.org/pkg/luatexbase and https://ctan.org/pkg/ctablestack The original code is not supported in current LuaTeX and not included in any other package in texlive if used with a luatex later than 0.80 so is no longer distributed in this release. The original documented source is available at a separate repository https://github.com/ho-tex/old-source All Oberdiek packages Technical updates to URL across the whole collection: changing http:// to https:// where possible, and normalising most CTAN links to use the https://ctan.org/pkg/zref form, fixing any broken links reported by a link checker, see https://github.com/ho-tex/oberdiek/issues/75 (Package versions were not changed for these edits.)
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/oberdiek The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/oberdiek/
