D-55099 Mainz Germany Herbert Marshall McLuhan: The Gutenberg Galaxy ----------------patches.txt LaTeX Patches Guide 22 March 1995 This document describes the procedure by which changes to the LaTeX distribution in between the six-monthly releases will be made. Such changes will be made only when major problems are discovered and fixed. Other changes will only be made twice a year, in June and December. Changes which affect the file latex.ltx, and hence the format, are called patches to the LaTeX kernel': this concept is described in detail below. The changes of this type are described briefly at the end of this file, in chronological order. All changes to all files should be listed, in reverse-time order, in the files called changes.txt: there is one in each distribution subdirectory. Some reports are marked with a number such as latex/1487. This means that the original report, and any related correspondence, is available in the public bugs report database, available on the World Wide Web: http://www.tex.ac.uk/CTAN/latex/bugs.html Patches to the LaTeX kernel dated <1994/12/01> ============================================== New releases of LaTeX will occur at six-monthly intervals, in June and December. Between these releases it may be necessary to make small updates to fix major problems. We have made it relatively easy to install updates that affect only the format---by placing all these changes in one file, called ltpatch.ltx. In order to update your LaTeX format you should put ltpatch.ltx where it can be read by iniTeX and then run iniTeX on latex.ltx. You do not need to unpack the latex sources again. In this run of iniTeX, the file ltpatch.ltx (if it exists) will be read just before the format file is dumped'. This will correct any bugs and it will modify the opening banner of LaTeX: for example, from: LaTeX2e <1994/12/01> to: LaTeX2e <1994/12/01> patch level 2 Other changes ============= Note that ltpatch.ltx fixes only bugs that are present in the LaTeX format. Problems in packages, classes and other files will be fixed by re-issuing the appropriate files, some of which may need to be unpacked.

Changes to non-kernel files in LaTeX <1994/12/01> -------------------------------------------------- This section details files that have changed in the base', tools' and mfnfss' distributions. Updates to the babel' psnfss', amslatex' and graphics' distributions will be announced separately, if necessary. To activate the non-kernel updates you have to retrieve the .dtx files and unpack them with their corresponding .ins files or alternatively (for the files in base') you may obtain the unpacked files from ctan archives. base/compan.err More corrections to "The LaTeX Companion" base/slides.dtx Fix for graphics/1335 (colour support) base/classes.dtx Improve colour support. base/letter.dtx Fix for latex/1375 (address label positioning) base/alltt.dtx Modify so \verb?\? works.
