Date: November 8, 2023 8:15:56 AM CET
John Collins submitted an update to the latexmk package. Version: 4.81 2023-11-06 License: gpl2 Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation Announcement text:
Fix various problems when filenames contain non-ASCII characters, especially when MSYS is used. Fix problems with analyzing wrapped lines in log files, especially with lualatex. With options like -dvi that set the kind of output file, turn off settings corresponding to incompatible options. Improved warning and error messages. Fix problem when using the $use_make_for_missing_files, with the search over possible extensions for a missing file. Add .run.xml to the list of generated extensions in @generated_exts. Correct the behavior after errors. Previously force_mode didn't work as documented, terminating processing too early, while in preview_continuous_mode, incorrect extra runs were sometimes made. Other bug fixes.

latexmk – Fully automated document generation

Latexmk completely automates the process of generating a document. Given the source files for a document, latexmk issues the appropriate sequence of commands to generate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hardcopy version of the document.

An important feature is the “preview continuous mode”, where the script watches all of the source files (primary file and included and graphics files), and reruns , etc., whenever a source file has changed. Thus a previewer can offer a display of the document’s latest state.
