CTAN update: glossaries

Date: October 18, 2022 10:02:30 PM CEST
Nicola Talbot submitted an update to the glossaries package. Version number: 4.50 2022-10-14 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Create glossaries and lists of acronyms Announcement text:
This release is part of a set of inter-connected releases all dated 2022-10-14: bib2gls v3.0, glossaries v4.50, mfirstuc v2.08 and glossaries-extra v1.49. The uploads will have to be staggered over the course of a week, but if you update glossaries, make sure you update mfirstuc as soon as it becomes available. **Major new version** Rollback to v4.49 available. This new version will check for mfirstuc v2.08. If found, glossaries.sty won't load textcase.sty any more as it will switch to using LaTeX3 case-changing commands instead. This now means that UTF-8 is supported and some of the sentence case commands, such as \Glsentrytext can expand in PDF bookmarks. If your document uses \MakeTextUppercase or \MakeTextLowercase, you will need to explicitly load textcase.sty if you want to continue using them. Alternatively substitute them with \glsuppercase and \glslowercase. If mfirstuc v2.08 isn't installed, textcase.sty will continue to be loaded. All deprecated and obsolete commands and options that have been retained for backward-compatibility for over 6 years have been removed. If you still need them, you will have to use rollback. The other significant change is that the default setting for esclocations and \ifglswrallowprimitivemods is now false. If a document requiring xindy has locations that expand to robust or protected commands you may need to switch these on or see the "Problematic Locations" section of the user manual. (Those settings require a hack that may well break and since most documents don't need them, it's safer for them to be off by default.) For all other new features and bug fixes, see the CHANGES file.

glossaries – Create glossaries and lists of acronyms

The glossaries package supports acronyms and multiple glossaries, and has provision for operation in several languages (using the facilities of either babel or polyglossia). New entries are defined to have a name and description (and optionally an associated symbol). Support for multiple languages is offered, and plural forms of terms may be specified. An additional package, glossaries-accsupp, can make use of the accsupp package mechanisms for accessibility support for PDF files containing glossaries.

The user may define new glossary styles, and preambles and postambles can be specified. There is provision for loading a database of terms, but only terms used in the text will be added to the relevant glossary.

The package uses an indexing program to provide the actual glossary; either makeindex or xindy may serve this purpose, and a Perl script is provided to serve as interface.

This package requires the mfirstuc package.

The package supersedes the author’s glossary package (which is now obsolete).
