I have told you about arara (the cool TeX automation tool) already. But it is time to write more as there are great news: Paulo recently published v3 of arara. He uploaded this version to CTAN which means arara also made it into TeX Live 2012:
So, what’s new in arara v3?
Paolo Cereda recently published version 2.0 of the TeX automation tool arara. The most notable change: there now is an installer which should make the installation process much easier. And for all Windows users out there: yes there also is an installer for Windows! The installation process I described earlier still works, though.
Paolo wrote a short introduction to arara on github.com/cereda/arara. The source, the installer and the manual can be downloaded from github.com/cereda/arara/downloads.
I have to thank Paolo for mentioning my humble attempt to advertise his awesome tool in the documentation.
Have as much fun with it as I do!
After I read an article on latex-community.org I got intrigued: this sounded like a really comfortable way to automate my compiling process! So today I downloaded, installed and used Paolo Cereda‘s arara for the first time — and immediately fell in love with it.
