Robert Alessi submitted an update to the ekdosis package. Version number: 1.2 2021-04-02 License type: gpl3+ fdl Summary description: Typesetting TEI-xml compliant Critical Editions Announcement text:
ekdosis v1.2:--- This release of ekdosis comes with many new features of which the most important follow: - improved support of babel/polyglossia: it is now possible to apply to any layer of the apparatus criticus a language different from the one that is selected in the edition text. This is notably important eg. for Arabic or Sanskrit where it is customary to use a transliteration scheme in the apparatus criticus. - new general hooks have been added, allowing for an initial separating rule, the styling of lemma texts and/or variant readings, &c. - poetry: ekdosis can now load and use the facilities provided by the verse package. Verse lines can be numbered independently of prose text. Of course, continuous line numbering remains possible. Indentation patterns are also supported. Furthermore, a specific environment for the encoding of line groups has been added. A detailed example from Raymond MacDonald Alden's edition of Shakespeare's Sonnets from the Quarto of 1609 with variorum readings is provided in the documentation, where an effort has been made to keep the typography and the punctuation of the original edition. - conditional page breaks: the line number and optionally the page number where a page break should occur can be specified. If the conditions specified be not met, then the page break is not triggered. - much improved export to TEI xml. For future work, please see sect. 13 on p. 70 of the documentation.

ekdosis – Typesetting TEI-xml compliant Critical Editions

ekdosis is a Lua package designed for multilingual critical editions. It can be used to typeset texts and different layers of critical notes in any direction accepted by Lua. Texts can be arranged in running paragraphs or on facing pages, in any number of columns which in turn can be synchronized or not. In addition to printed texts, ekdosis can convert .tex source files so as to produce TEI-xml compliant critical editions. Database-driven encoding under then allows extraction of texts entered segment by segment according to various criteria: main edited text, variant readings, translations or annotated borrowings between texts.
