Date: April 5, 2023 9:51:45 PM CEST
John Collins submitted an update to the latexmk package. Version number: 4.80 2023-04-04 License type: gpl2 Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation Announcement text:
Improved treatment of detection of whether files (e.g., .log) have been generated on current run or are leftover from an earlier run. Code now compensates (and diagnoses) time offset between computer running latexmk and file server. Allow placeholder %C in argument to set_tex_cmds, to allow more flexible construction of command lines for all *latex. Fix problems of compatibility with the xr package. Allow escaping of spaces in names of files in deps files, as needed by make. Escaping can be unix-style or nmake-style. Various bug fixes and corrections, improvements in error and warning messages, and corrections to documentation.

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.
