Date: December 27, 2023 6:33:16 PM CET
John Collins submitted an update to the latexmk package. Version: 4.82 2023-12-24 License: gpl2 Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation Announcement text:
Fixed various anomalies in working with biber, especially under error conditions. Fixed various anomalies with use of -bibtex- and -bibtex-cond options. Fixed problem that -Werror worked only with bibtex and not biber. (This is the option that causes latexmk to return a non-zero exit code to flag an error when there are missing-citation messages in the .log file.) Added -dir-report-only option. Fixed lack of quoting on command line to kpsewhich. Implemented support for hilatex (-hnt option, $hnt_mode configuration variable). Allow sleep times of under a second. (That gives very responsive performance on fast computers.) Support ^^ format in .log file for non-ASCII bytes/characters. Document $filetime_causality_threshold configuration variable. Other documentation improvements.

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.
