CTAN update: BibArts

Date: March 5, 2019 10:39:09 AM CET
Timo Baumann submitted an update to the BibArts package. Version number: 2.2 License type: gpl Summary description: "Arts"-style bibliographical information Announcement text:
BibArts is a package to administer bibliographical references in footnotes, and for creating a bibliography from these references simultaneously; it requires a program, for which source and Windows executable are provided. (A summary of contents is in English; the full documentation is in German.) === Changes from BibArts version 2.1 (2016) to version 2.2 (now, 2019): (1) bibsort 2.2, the sorting program of the package, has 3 new options: Use bibsort -h [...] to sort hyphens ( - \hy \fhy "= "~ ) as spaces. Use bibsort -b [...] to begin the sorting of the title at \bago, e.g.: \vli{J.}{Smith}{The \bago \ktit{Book}, London 2005} bibsort -n1 [...] will create blocks of footnote numbers only, if the entries are from footnotes on the same page, e.g.: 10^{3-6}, 11^{7-9} (2) If there are two entries of \kli{Smith}{Book} from two successive pages, but with *the same* footnote number, bibsort 2.2 will print out e.g. 10^{3}, 11^{3} . bibsort 2.0 and 2.1 ignored 11^{3} in that case. (3) bibsort 2.2 checks your input concerning the \ktit{Shortened Title}. You will find warnings on the screen and as comments in the created files. (4) \vli{J.}{Smith}{The \ktit{\onlyvoll{r}\onlykurz{R}ed Book}, 2006} has to be used (for index and ibidem), if the shortened title is not just a part of the full title ("red" and "Red"). In some cases, bibsort 2.1 printed out wrong only-arguments on the lists. This error has been fixed. And errors in the sorting of entries with only-commands were eliminated. (5) You may say now \renewcommand{\ntsep}{\bapoint\ } to print out a full stop between name and title; BibArts is avoiding e.g. "Smith, J..". (6) If you '\renewcommand' a pre-defined text element (caption), you sometimes will have to adapt the italic correction. Bibarts 2.2 provides the homogenous command \bacorr instead of the four different commands \bakxxcorr, \baabkcorr, \balistcorr, and \bakntsepcorr (but those old commands are still valid). To print the lists, you may say now e.g.: \renewcommand{\frompagesep}{\bacorr ; } \printnumvli \printnumvkc (7) If you use babel, BibArts 2.2 will not execute \originalTeX between list items (that's prepared by bibsort, if the catcode of " changes): It was useless with germanb-babel and caused errors with french-babel. With german.sty or ngerman.sty, the use of \originalTeX is still reproduced. (8) bibarts.sty provides new commands for the hyphenation in German: - \oldhyss to set a \ss, which is splitted s-s (to be used between vovels, e.g. au\oldhyss er; you have to use your sharp S else, e.g. da\ss); - \newhyss to set a \ss, which is splitted s-s only in small caps, and else is printing a sharp S, which is splitted as \language says (-\ss); - \hyss to execute \oldhyss, if \language is \l at german, and \newhyss else (e.g. if \language is \l at ngerman --- so, \hyss can be used *always*); - commands for the handling of "tripple consonant before vovel" in German: E.g. Sto\hyf figur, Scha\hyl leistung, Sta\hym mutter, Ke\hyn nummer, Ste\hyp pullover, Sta\hyr rahmen, and Schri\hyt tempo: If \language is \l at german, BibArts will PRINT AND SORT \hyf as f, and ELSE as ff, etc. + All commands are ready to be used in \MakeUppercase (also Dru\hyc ker). (9) If you \conferize, e.g. \kli{A}{B} will print a cross-reference to \vli{}{A}{\ktit{B}}. The INTERNAL KEYWORD is created from the letters, and some accents you use in {A} and {B}. The accents are REPRESENTED as \`=[ \'=] \"=* \ss=(ss \l=(l \L=(L \o=(o \O=(O \^=) \~=- \c=+ in the keyword. The active " and \= \. \b \d are not represented any more. === Published under the terms of the GNU General Public License. BibArts 2.2 (C) Timo Baumann 2019

BibArts – “Arts”-style bibliographical information

BibArts is a package to assist in making bibliographical features common in the arts and the humanities (history, political science, philosophy, etc.).

bibarts.sty provides commands for quotations, abbreviations, and especially for a formatted citation of literature, journals (periodicals), edited sources, and archive sources. In difference to earlier versions, BibArts 2.x helps to use slanted fonts (italics) and is able to set ibidem automatically in footnotes. It will also copy all citation information, abbreviations, and register key words into lists for an automatically generated appendix. These lists may refer to page and footnote numbers. BibArts has nothing to do with . The lists are created by bibsort (see below).

BibArts requires the program bibsort, for which the sources and a Windows executable are provided. This program creates the bibliography without using MakeIndex or . Its source is not written with any specific operating system in mind. A summary of contents is in English; the full documentation is in German.
