CTAN update: l3kernel

Date: June 15, 2018 10:27:03 PM CEST
The LaTeX Team submitted an update to the l3kernel package. Version number: 2018-06-14 License type: lppl1.3c Summary description: LaTeX3 programming conventions Announcement text:
l3kernel Release 2018-06-14 =========================== This release introduces a new argument specifier, "e". This carries out expansion as \message does, but is itself expandable. At present, this is available as a primitive only in LuaTeX (\expanded), but the team expect this to be added to other engines shortly (the changes have been made to pdfTeX and (u)pTeX in the TeX Live sources). Emulation of this primitive is also available, meaning that e-type expansion can be used with all engines *now*, though it is *slow* in emulation mode. At present, the e-type argument is restricted to \exp_args:Ne and similar functions. Where appropriate, some functions will be renamed to reflect the new type. The team do not expect to use e-type expansion widely until \expanded is available to the majority of users. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/l3kernel More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/l3kernel We are supported by the TeX User Groups. Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Ina Dau

l3kernel – 3 programming conventions

The l3kernel bundle provides an implementation of the 3 programmers’ interface, as a set of packages that run under . The interface provides the foundation on which the 3 kernel and other future code are built: it is an API for programmers. The packages are set up so that the 3 conventions can be used with regular packages.
