Summary of Improvements
This patch release brings both bug fixes and new goodies.
Didier Willis contributed a new package for formatting lists. Features include bullet, numbered, and mixed list types with many styling options.
Fredrick Brennan fixed zenkaku unit handling and helped refactor the jplain/jbook classes so we now have tate-capable but language-agnostic tplain/tbook classes in addition to the Japanese specific variants. He also contributed full support for Esperanto including hyphenation, number formatting, and localized output strings. Even if you don’t have a use case for Esperanto directly the issues that rooted out with language and class handling should benefit everyone.
papersize option provided by the base class is now case insensitive and allows dashes.
If you prefer
ansia feel free to use them.
A couple new paper size presets were added in the process.
Additionally the font fallback system got an overhaul. A change from previous behavior is that TOFU handed out by the last available fallback font will be rendered instead of skipping the characters completely. Switching back and forth between the color fonts package and the font fallback package is now possible. Finally it should stop throwing bogus warnings when it successfully shapes a segment via the last available fallback.
Other minor fixes include interactions with color plus dropcaps, some bibtex errors, and errors in the pecha class.
