Another pinp package release! pinp allows for snazzier one or two column Markdown-based pdf vignettes, and is now used by a few packages. A screenshot of the package vignette can be seen below. Additional screenshots are at the pinp page.
This release comes exactly one week (i.e. the minimal time to not earn a
NOTE) after the hot-fix release 0.0.8 which addressed breakage on CRAN tickled by changed in TeX Live. After updating the PNAS style LaTeX macros, and avoiding the issue with an (older) custom copy of titlesec, we now have the real fix, thanks to the eagle-eyed attention of Javier Bezos. The error, as so often, was simple and ours: we had left a stray
pinp.cls where it may have been in hiding for a while. A very big Thank You! to Javier for spotting it, to Norbert for all his help and to James for double-checking on PNAS.
The good news in all of this is that the package is now in better shape than ever. The newer PNAS style works really well, and I went over a few of our extensions (such as
papersize support for a4 as well as letter), direct on/off off a Draft
watermark, a custom subtitle and more—and they all work consistently. So happy vignette or paper writing!
The NEWS entry for this release follows.
Changes in pinp version 0.0.9 (2019-09-15)
The processing error first addressed in release 0.0.8 is now fixed by removing one stray command; many thanks to Javier Bezos.
The hotfix of also installing titlesec.sty has been reverted.
Processing of the 'papersize' and 'watermark' options was updated.
