latex-base-dev – Development pre-release of the kernel

This package provides a testing release for upcoming kernel changes. Testing by the team itself suggests that the code is stable and usable, but wider use by knowledgeable users is required by adding these changes to the release kernel. Typically, the code here will be used by a system to create dedicated formats, for example pdflatex-dev, which can then be used explicitly for testing.
