I’m happy to tell you than we can provide the „LaTeX Beginner’s Guide“ as an ebook for free, for a limited time. The normal price for the ebook is € 24.97, now it will be € 0,00 for one day. This was agreed with the publisher, and it will be valid for that single day only.
I cannot tell you the exact day yet, but it will be a single day in the following 2 weeks, starting from tomorrow.
This is the second (and last) part of the tricks I found on StackExchange. First part began in the preceding issue.
We will begin by a personal trick, and end by some inquiry about my LaTeX Tips & Tricks.
This is the Xth edition of my TUGboat `Tips & Tricks.' This time, we shall first see how to write `dancing text,' roman numerals, how to draw under and over braces on same elements, and how to display aligned (in)equations systems. We will then end by discussing on BibLaTeX and Biber, which constitute a promising alternative to BibTeX.
After having looked at about 150 StackExchange
pages of 50 topics (that sums up to about 7500 topics' names), I give you, in this article and in the
next issue, the most interesting topics' answers to
my eyes. Needless to say that
I did not read each topic on StackExchange,
I selectioned the ones I decided to read based
on the topics' respective titles,
The topics that have not been considered here
are not necessarily uninteresting! Moreover, I
did not find a lot of uninteresting topics.
We will first begin by two additions in regard
to , .
Christian Feuersänger released version 1.11 of PGFPlots. It's already one week ago, but regarding this special package that news is important for me, so I share it also here. Furthermore, there are news about the future development.
LyX got a small maintenance update, the current version is now 2.1.1. It's important to update, if you already use v2.1.0, since there's a serious bug which was handled now: with 2.1.0 data loss could occur when LyX would crash during saving, leaving the document fiel corrupted. Though the exact cause is not clear yet, the developers implemented a workaround: now LyX renames the original file bevor saving, keeping it as a temporary backup. This file could be used for restoring, just in a case of such a crash.
