CTAN update: latexdiff

Date: October 17, 2018 10:10:44 PM CEST
Frederik Tilmann submitted an update to the latexdiff package. Version number: 1.3.0 License type: gpl3 Summary description: Determine and mark up significant differences between LaTeX files Announcement text:
Feature extensions: * treat options to \documentclass as potential package names (some packages allow implicit loading of or imply selected packages) * verbatim and lstlisting environments are marked-up with line-by-line in a similar style to non-verbatim text (requires the listing package to be installed). Also see new configuration variable VERBATIMLINEENV (several issues and pull requests by jprotze) * --flatten: now supports \verbatiminput and \lstlistinput * --flatten: if file is not found, do not fail, simply warn and leave command unexpanded (inspired by issue #112). Don't even warn if file name contains #[0-9] as it is then most likely an argument within a command definition rather than an actual file (applies to \input, \subfile, \include commands) * new config variable CUSTOMDIFCMD to allow defining special versions of commands in added or deleted blocks (Pull request by github user jprotze) * added option -no-links, which suppress generation of hyperreferences. This is mostly (or only) useful in the context of the --only-changes option of latexdiff-vc in only-changes modes) (Pull request by github user jprotze) Bug fixes: * pattern matching of \verb and \lstinline commands had an error which meant they would trigger on commands beginning with \verb. * In description environments, mark up item descriptions by effectively reating the insides of item commannds as text commands (fixes #161) * improved pattern matching: now allows nested angular brackets, and is no longer confused by escaped curly braces * improved pattern matching in COARSE mode: occasionally, the closing bracket or some other elements would be matched in an 'unnatural' way due to another sequence being more minimal in the computational sense, sometimes even causing errors due to tokens moving in or out of the scope of math environments. This is now discouraged by adding internal \DIFANCHOR commands (which are removed again in post-processing) (fixes issues reported via email by li_ruomeng ) * added to textcmds: \intertext from amsmath package

latexdiff – Determine and mark up significant differences between files

Latexdiff is a Perl script for visual mark up and revision of significant differences between two files. Various options are available for visual markup using standard packages such as color. Changes not directly affecting visible text, for example in formatting commands, are still marked in the source. A rudimentary revision facilility is provided by another Perl script, latexrevise, which accepts or rejects all changes. Manual editing of the difference file can be used to override this default behaviour and accept or reject selected changes only.
