# AutoLaTeX

AutoLaTeX is a tool for managing small to large LaTeX documents. It detects which files that are used to build the document (included TeX files, BibTeX, figures, etc.) and launches the various different tools (latex, bibtex, makeindex) when the sources files have been changed. It provides translation rules that automatically generate figures in EPS, PNG, or PDF formats from different types of sources (dia, xfig, svg, astah, source code, etc.)

•  29 May 2013 20:38

Release Notes: Major bugs are fixed in the GNU plot to PDF converter with embedded TeX macros, and the index style passed on the CLI is given to makeindex.

•  26 May 2013 20:54

Release Notes: AutoLaTeX can now output documents in DVI/XDV or PS formats in addition to the PDF format. To enable this last feature, all the figure converters (the translators) have been updated to produce PDF or EPS figures. The user is able to select the preferred TeX compiler: latex, pdflatex, xelatex, or lualatex. AutoLaTeX is now better at detecting the main TeX file; it selects the TeX file which contains the macro "\documentclass". A converter (translator) based on GNU octave has been added.

•  23 May 2013 00:03

Release Notes: This release is a complete rewrite in Perl to avoid the use of GNU Make. The definitions of the figure translators are no longer based on a GNU Make syntax. INI-like and Perl syntaxes are used in their place. The commandline action "makeflat" has been added to produce a TeX document which is easier to upload to a publishers' website.
