Summary of Improvements
Today we have a substantial rollup of small fixes. No one thing here is going to knock your socks off, but lots of things are just better.
On the documentation front a new contributor, John Labovitz, stepped in with a huge copy-edit of the entire manual.
For shiny new features, Didier Willis added a new
scalebox package for reshaping other output.
He also taught some existing packages new tricks, such as adding style hooks to the
url package and allowing the infinitely stretchy fill glue nodes to be initialized with a starting length.
The CLI gained a new
--quiet flag to suppress info and warning messages for those times when you just don't want to know what the engine is telling you.
In bug extermination news, the list of squashed ones is long, and some of them had been around for a long time.
Didier did a lot of work under the hood with hboxes and discretionary node handling.
The upshot for end users is that a lot of weirdness with
parindent settings and they way content that didn't fit on one page is pushed to the next has been smoothed over.
Your indents shouldn't ever get applied twice, underlines won't apply to the indentation space, unnumbered chapters won't sometimes disappear from your ToC, and so forth.
