I’m happy to tell you that today we provide the „LaTeX Beginner’s Guide“ as an ebook for free, for 24 hours. The normal price for the ebook is € 24.97, today it will be € 0,00. This was agreed with Packt Publishing and me as the author, and it will be valid only today, March 4, 2015.
This is a special thanks to all LaTeX Community Forum members for their LaTeX support in this forum. I know, our experienced LaTeX supporters don’t need this book, but feel free to get it for curiosity. Your download will prove interest to the publisher, so I could offer them a revised updated edition.
Our LaTeX friends, who may be new in this topic, may benefit. And I thank all for their questions in our forum, because this forum would not exist without you!
We are always happy to welcome LaTeX friends in the forum, so it would be great if you would join us in the forum. I will answer any question to the book's contents there. Experts: our forum also needs your help, perhaps have a look at the unanswered questions. Are you able to answer one, even if it’s older? Orginal poster and later readers would be happy!
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.
