John Collins sub­mit­ted an up­date to the la­texmk pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 4.59 2018-08-07 Li­cense type: gpl2 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Fully au­to­mated LaTeX doc­u­ment gen­er­a­tion An­nounce­ment text:
Add con­fig­u­ra­tion vari­able $bib­tex_fudge to al­low to choose whether to use the fudge that made bib­tex run cor­rectly when an out­put di­rec­tory (or aux di­rec­tory) is spec­i­fied. (A planned fu­ture ver­sion of bib­tex in TeXLive 2019 will not need the fudge.) Do bet­ter to en­sure xe­la­tex gets its -no-pdf op­tion. Re­move dou­ble quote char­ac­ters in files on com­mand line to cor­re­spond to be­hav­ior of tex pro­grams. Give fa­tal er­ror when name of file on com­mand line is not al­lowed by tex pro­grams or gives prob­lem­atic be­hav­ior. Use TEXINPUTS as search path for miss­ing source files for cus­tom de­pen­dency. Only give warn­ing about dif­fer­ing ex­pected and out­put file­names when the ex­ten­sions dif­fer. Cor­rect prob­lem that some­times oc­curred if the en­vi­ron­ment vari­able PERL_UNICODE is set.

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.
