Debian/TeX Live 2017.20171031-1

Halloween is here, time to upload a new set of scary packages of TeX Live. About a month has passed, so there is the usual big stream up updates. There was actually an intermediate release to get out some urgent fixes, but I never reported the news here. So here are the accumulated changes and updates.

My favorite this time is wallcalendar, a great class to design all kind of calendars, it looks really well done. I immediately will start putting one together.

On the font side there is the new addition coelacanth. To quote from the README: “Coelacanth is inspired by the classic Centaur type design of Bruce Rogers, described by some as the most beautiful typeface ever designed. It aims to be a professional quality type family for general book typesetting.” And indeed it is beautiful!

Other noteworthy addition is the Spark font that allows creating sparklines in the running text with LaTeX.
