CTAN update: texdimens

Date: November 10, 2021 8:50:29 PM CET
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the texdimens package. Version number: 1.0 2021-11-10 License type: lppl1.3c Summary description: Conversion of TeX dimensions to decimals Announcement text:
v1.0 (2021/11/10) - new: \texdimenbothbpmm (and relatives). It produces the largest dimension not exceeding (in absolute value) the input and expressible exactly both in the bp and in the mm units. - enhanced: all \texdimenUUup and \texdimenUUdown macros now accept all inputs, up to and inclusive of \maxdimen. Formerly the macros associated to "dd", "nc", and "in" needed the input to stay a few sp's away from \maxdimen. The new macros use a new algorithm and got a bit faster. - breaking: the \texdimenwithunit output for a second argument smaller than 1pt has changed. Both old and new outputs verify the specification from the documentation, but the new one has the advantage of remaining closer to the exact mathematical ratio of the two arguments. - enhanced: \texdimenwithunit's second argument is now allowed to be negative. Thanks to Ruixi Zhang for multiple remarks, analyses and feature requests.
