I’ve been talking about a new version of
ages. Progress has been slow but I’ve now put
my back into it and got to a feature-complete version: I’m calling this
v3.0.0-beta. As this is a beta release, it’s not ready for production just
yet, but it is ready for proper testing. I’ve made the TDS-style zip file
available here; if you
know how to use this kind of file, please download and test!
As I’ve said before, there are a lot of internal improvements in the code. There are also some big changes which do show to users. The major changes are
\qty. The old names (
\SI) are still about, but I’d encourage people to move to the new ones.
\numproduct, with a matching
\complexqty: this makes parsing a lot easier
To support users and to avoid breaking any documents, the new code is accompanied by a (likely) final version 2 file. That can be loaded using
What I’m looking for now is feedback on what works, what I’ve missed, etc. Feedback is best in issues on GitHub. You might notice I’m already planning v3.1 and v3.2: the new structures should make more development possible. But at the moment I’m mainly trying to finalise v3.0.
