CTAN update: Gamebooklib

Robert J Lee submitted an update to the Gamebooklib package. Version number: 1.3 2022-05-26 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Macros for setting numbered entries in shuffled order Announcement text:
This is a collection of package improvements. The "footnotes on last line" bug is the only change not behind a new option that could affect the output; I don't see how the previous behaviour could be desirable especially as it was intermittent. New feature: * A new "jukebox" option is available to reduce the clumping of entries compared to a uniform shuffle. Bugfixes: * Fixes an occasional issue where the last line of some footnotes could be justified. * New option to filter the output routine to eliminate blank (or short) pages that may be seen in longer documents when using the custom output routine (requires redefining a command). * Various typos and minor tweaks to the documentation PDF.

Gamebooklib – Macros for setting numbered entries in shuffled order

This package provides macros and environments to allow the user to typeset a series of cross-referenced, numbered “entries”, shuffled into random order, to produce an interactive novel or “gamebook”.

This allows entries to be written in natural order and shuffled automatically into a repeatable non-linear order.

Limited support is provided for footnotes to appear at the natural position: the end of each entry, or the end of each page, whichever is closest to the footnote mark.

This is unrelated to the gamebook package which is more concerned with the formatting of entries rather than their order. The two packages can be used together or separately.
