Date: February 10, 2024 8:10:39 PM CET
Charles P. Schaum submitted an update to the nameauth package. Version number: 4.0 2024-02-09 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Name authority mechanism for consistency in body text and index Announcement text:
I am pleased to announce the release of nameauth 4.0, which is likely to be the final feature set of the package. It remains backward compatible at least to TL 2017, but it now uses the power and flexibility of xparse. No features have been removed. An oldargs option has been added to load both xparse and suffix, in order to facilitate older user modifications. Both old and new approaches interoperate seamlessly on all documents tested. More testing has led to improvements in the namual and example files.

nameauth – Name authority mechanism for consistency in body text and index

Publications, that reference many names, require editors and proofreaders to track those names in the text and index. The package offers name authority macros that allow authors and compilers to normalize occurrences of names, variant name forms, and pen names in the text and index. This may help minimize writing and production time and cost.
