LaTeXe, An Overview

  Michel Goossens CN/ASD

B ibTeX

This article gives an overview of the new or extended user commands available with LaTeXe, the new LaTeX release, compared to the previous version LaTeX 2.09. After introducing the new preamble commands, the extensions for defining new commands and environments, and handling length and boxes are discussed. The new font selection commands are explained, both for text and math, and it is shown how to easily use different font families. A list of supported class and package files is given and new possibilities for controlling page contents and floats are discussed. Most of this material is described in much greater detail in ``The LaTeX Companion'' [1] and in the second edition of the LaTeX Reference Manual [2] gif.
