Robert Alessi submitted an update to the ekdosis package. Version number: 1.1 2020-11-04 License type: gpl3+ fdl Summary description: Typesetting TEI-xml-compliant Critical Editions Announcement text:
# ekdosis v1.1:--- - Improved documentation with new sections, notably Variae Quaestiones, Laying Out Parallel Texts. - ekdosis has been adapted to LaTeX 2020-10-01 (inclusion of xparse and new hook management). - Improved \DeclareScholar now builds a list of persons within the <listPerson> element. New command \DeclareSource for editions used as sources. As a consequence, 'source' and 'resp' have been added as optional arguments of \lem and \rdg. - Editorial changes: new commands supplied, \surplus, \sic and \gap have been added among others. - Some commands have been renamed: \SetxmlBibResource → \AddxmlBibResource and \TeXtoTEIPatt → \TeXtoTEIPat. - A new command \addentries has been added for modifying the number of accepted entries on the current page. - ekdosis now accepts any page numbering scheme. (v1.0 only worked on pages numbered with Arabic numerals.) - New command \rdgGrp for subvariation. # Future Work:--- A short, un-commented list of what is planned in the versions of ekdosis to come follows:--- - Very short-term (weeks):--- 1. Text structure: milestone elements. 2. Marginal edition texts: It may happen that the marginalia of manuscripts contain texts worth editing in addition to and along the main text to which they are linked by reference signs. 3. Headers and footers: \ekddiv will provide top and bottom marks to be used in headers and footers. 4. Poetry: full support of the 'verse' package. - Short-term:--- 1. Poetry: the 'ekdverse' environment will provide refined options, such as metrical analysis, stanzaic forms, &c. Arabic poetry through the environments and commands provided by the arabluatex package will also be supported. 2. Correspondence and alignment, segmentation: The functions are being tested at the time of writing and will be included shortly in ekdosis. - Medium-term (months): Indexing, commands and environments for specific modules of the TEI.

ekdosis – Typesetting TEI-xml compliant Critical Editions

ekdosis is a Lua package designed for multilingual critical editions. It can be used to typeset texts and different layers of critical notes in any direction accepted by Lua. Texts can be arranged in running paragraphs or on facing pages, in any number of columns which in turn can be synchronized or not. In addition to printed texts, ekdosis can convert .tex source files so as to produce TEI xml-compliant critical editions. Database-driven encoding under then allows extraction of texts entered segment by segment according to various criteria: main edited text, variant readings, translations or annotated borrowings between texts.
