John Collins submitted an update to the latexmk package. Version number: 4.69a 2020-04-17 License type: gpl2 Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation Announcement text:
Add -E option to default command for xdvipdfmx, to match call made by xetex. This forces xdvipdfmx to always try to embed fonts. Add -MSWinBackSlash -MSWinBackSlash- options (and corresponding configuration variable $MSWin_back_slash) to control whether directory separator '\' is used for filenames on command line for called programs under MSWin. -MSWinBackSlash- needs to be used when TeXLive is used on MSWin and the TeX filename includes a directory component. When command-line-specified tex file not found, test for cusdep to make it, then try kpsewhich, and only if all 3 fail report an error. Various minor improvements and bug fixes.

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.
