John Collins submitted an update to the latexmk package. Version number: 4.83 2024-01-31 License type: gpl2 Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation Announcement text:
Fix bug that sometimes biber is incorrectly run after a *latex run results in an error, with biber then giving an error. Fix problem that if -gg is used with multiple files specified on command line, then generated files are deleted for all by the last file compiled. (So that -gg wasn't working as intended in this case.) Fixed some bugs with incorrect variable scope. (These bugs gave incomprehensible error messages about undefined variables!) Restrict warning diagnostics about ^^ constructs in aux file to those involving non-trivial Unicode characters, as against things like ^^M.

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.
