CTAN update: derivative

Date: May 26, 2021 9:12:39 PM CEST
Simon Jensen submitted an update to the derivative package. Version number: 1.0 2021-05-25 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Nice and easy derivatives Announcement text:
There have been made some necessary changes and for this reason the new version may break existing documents. This is likely due to changes made to the order argument and mixed order argument - see documentation for more information. Added - new options for derivatives - new values for existing options - new commands to write differentials Changed - usage of the option `style-inf` - the order argument to an option argument - default values for some options - math space keys now accept more general inputs - `\derivset` now defines default options Removed - the mixed order argument - the options `misc-add-delims` and `misc-remove-delims` Fixed - code errors, code clean-up and optimization - Documentation errors Replaced the commands in section 5 with new ones. Old ones no longer works. Merged the codes for ordinary and partial derivatives Enhanced support for preventing options effecting nested derivatives/differentials

derivative – Nice and easy derivatives

Typesetting derivatives and differentials in a consistent way are clumsy and require care to ensure the preferred formatting. Several packages have been developed for this purpose, each with its own features and drawbacks, with the most ambitious one being diffcoeff. While this package is comparable to diffcoeff in terms of features, it takes a different approach. One difference is this package provides more options to tweak the format of the derivatives and differentials. However, the automatic calculation of the total order isn't as developed as the one in diffcoeff.

This package makes it easy to write derivatives and differentials consistently with its predefined commands. It also provides a set of commands that can define custom derivatives and differential operators. The options follow a consistent naming scheme making them easy to use and understand.
