Publications by topic: LaTeX3 Applications (in LaTeX2e)


From the TUG Conference 2018 (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

siunitx: Past, present and future (slides)

Over the past decade, siunitx has become established as the major package for typesetting physical quantities in LaTeX. Here, I will look at the background to the package, and how it’s developed over the years. I’ll also lay out plans for the future: where are we going for version 3, and why is that important for users.
