CTAN Update: eplain
Eplain version 3.9 is available from CTAN via https://ctan.org/pkg/eplain and directly from https://tug.org/eplain. It's also included in TeX distributions. This minor release fixes a btxmac.tex bug introduced in 3.8 which caused \providecommand to fail. Also, the documentation now has a section on creating PDF bookmarks (a.k.a. outlines), and url and other updates. General: the Eplain macro package extends and expands on the definitions in plain TeX. It's intended to provide useful definitions regardless of how a document might be formatted, such as cross-referencing by labels. Eplain was originally developed for the book TeX for the Impatient, published by Addison-Wesley in 1990. That book is now freely available, from https://ctan.org/pkg/impatient, along with several translations. (It's also in TeX distributions.) Please send bug reports to tex-eplain at tug.org (mailing list web interface: https://lists.tug.org/tex-eplain). Happy expanded TeXing, Karl
