1. To give compatibility with tlperl (in TeX Live), latexmk now uses the Digest::MD5 module instead of the Digest module. 2. When latexmk is used under cygwin, the searched locations for the system rc file are extended to include UNIX-like paths.

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.
