John Collins submitted an update to the latexmk package. Version: 4.78 2022-11-18 License: gpl2 Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation Announcement text:
Option -dvilua to generate dvi file by lualatex Option -xdv to generate xdv file by xelatex To support these, change in definition of $dvi_mode, and new variables $dvilualatex, $xdv_mode. Bug corrections etc. Configuration variable $bad_warnings_as_error to allow certain bad warnings in log file (e.g., '\end inside ...') to be treated by latexmk as if *latex had reported an actual error. On MS-Windows, correctly handle non-ASCII names for file and directory variables set in rc files. Other improvements in treatment of non-ASCII characters in filenames.

latexmk – Fully automated document generation

Latexmk completely automates the process of generating a document. Given the source files for a document, latexmk issues the appropriate sequence of commands to generate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hardcopy version of the document.

An important feature is the “preview continuous mode”, where the script watches all of the source files (primary file and included and graphics files), and reruns , etc., whenever a source file has changed. Thus a previewer can offer a display of the document’s latest state.
