# CTAN Update: etoc

Date: March 3, 2013 12:13:03 PM CET
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the etoc package. Summary description: easily customisable TOCs License type: lppl Announcement text:
1.07e [2013/03/01] The minor updates during the previous month have brought some various improvments to the code, and relatively important changes: * v1.07b removed the \xspace previously used in \etocname, \etocnumber, \etocpage. This could mean that some sources will have to be edited, my apologies for that. * v1.07e (this update) completely modifies the (unsatisfactory) use of penalties and vertical spaces in the package `own line styles'. The changes could cause documents having made use of these etoc default line styles to compile a bit differently, my apologies for that. The documentation has been gradually extended to include more and more examples of various uses of the package. Are now explained, among others: * an example of an `inline' TOC with the subsections and the sub-subsections being typeset as footnotes to the sections, * an example of a TOC using the LaTeX default layout except for the subsections of one given section, * an example of a TOC listing all TOCs of the documents, * an example of a subsection which is itself a TOC on three columns displaying all subsections of the document, * and the latest addition: a TOC displayed as a tree. (uses tikz and package tikz-qtree).

## etoc – Completely customisable TOCs

The package gives the user complete control of how the entries of the table of contents should be constituted from the name, number, and page number of each sectioning unit. The layout is controlled by the definition of ‘line styles’ for each sectioning level used in the document.

The package provides its own custom line styles (which may be used as examples), and continues to support the standard formatting inherited from the document classes, but the package can also allow the user to delegate the details to packages dealing with list making environments (such as enumitem). The package’s default global style typesets tables of contents in a multi-column format, with either a standard heading, or a ruled title (optionally with a frame around the table).

The \tableofcontents command may be used arbitrarily many times in the same document, while \localtableofcontents provides a ‘local’ table of contents.
