CTAN update: Hepunits

Date: April 12, 2020 10:07:03 AM CEST
Andy Buckley submitted an update to the Hepunits package. Version number: 2.0.0 License type: lppl Summary description: A set of units useful in high energy physics applications Announcement text:
This is a major update (in concept if not actually large code volume) to finally use siunitx rather than SIunits as the basis for hepunits -- back in 2007, siunitx and LaTeX3 support were rather flaky, so the update never happened at the natural time. This update does change the behaviour: better names for some units, removal of some pointless units, making the units non-freestanding by default, and excluding non-essential convenience prefixed macros for SI units unless requsted via a package option. Kerning of the eV, eV/c and eV/c^2 macros has been refined to perform appropriately in bold and non-bold contexts, and the documentation improved.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/hepunits More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/hepunits

Hepunits – A set of units useful in high energy physics applications

Hepunits is a package built on the SIunits package which adds a collection of useful HEP units to the existing SIunits set. These include the energy units \MeV, \GeV, \TeV and the derived momentum and mass units \MeVoverc, \MeVovercsq and so on.
